‘The Voice Of An Angel’ returns! Having taken a well deserved break from the spotlight, Welsh operastar turned popstar, Charlotte Church, finally follows up 2010’s sensational but sadly overlooked album, Back To Scratch, with the release of a four-track EP, O N E.
As she has already proven, Church is not an artist who simply follows the trends, or even listens to her critics. O N E displays Church’s continued evolution as an artist, as she experiments sonically. Still at the fore is her distinctive, bold vocal, but she partners it with an edgier alt-rock sound.
At its most distinct, O N E delivers the haunting ‘How Not To Be Surprised When You’re A Ghost’, which harks back to 2010’s moving balladry. With a video inspired by Maurice Sendak’s otherworldly notions, Church enters into the world of dynamic musician meets artist, which currently hosts BjÃ¶rk as its Queen.
Charlotte has spent the summer touring her new music on the UK indie circuit playing intimate venues with her band – the bold new direction has been warmly received by both audiences and critics. Catch her at one of the following shows – more dates to be announced in due course through her official website.
24 September – Monto Water Rats, London
18 October – SWN Festival Cardiff
22 October – King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow
