Sailing Stones // Lucy and Virginia // Chloe Lawrence on Sunday 13th October 2019
Sailing Stones aka Jenny Lindfors’ debut album, “Polymnia” (due out Spring 2020), is an honest exploration of learning to break free and let go, existentially.
Although Polymnia comes from a place of melancholy, each song acts as a window into a transient moment of breakthrough and clarity.
Lindfors’ husky vocals glide over the top of murky, layered synthesisers and softly rolling drums, each melody a guiding light puncturing through dusky fog.
It’s clear that Lindfors’ personal but epic songwriting would sit well alongside Marissa Nadler, Weyes Blood and Julia Holter’s Have You In My Wilderness in any good record collection.
But in comparison to these songwriters, Lindfors’ songwriting captures acutely a nocturnal American expanse and in doing so recalls the ghost of Ry Cooder’s Paris, Texas soundtrack that partly inspired her.
With its foundations laid in Vale Studios, Polymnia came together with producer and multi-instrumentalist TJ Allen (Bat For Lashes, Laura Groves) on production and bass duties, Dan Moore on keys/ synths (Moog Ensemble, Modulus III, Anna Calvi) and Daisy Palmer (Mesadorm, Goldfrapp, Rae Morris) on drums and drum machines.
