Heart Pressed Between Stones
Camila Fuchs is Camila de Laborde and Daniel Hermann-Collini, forged in London and hailing from Mexico City and Munich respectively. Heart Pressed Between Stones is Camila Fuchs' second album after 2016's Singing From Fixed Rung. In the short time between each they've supported the likes of Actress, Aleksi Perala and played for the second time at MUTEK in Mexico. On Heart Pressed Between Stones the DNA of Nordic avant-pop songstresses Gumundsdottir and Dreijer Anderson is traceable, and appears like blueprints on which Camila Fuchs map out their identity. The seamless melding of artificial and organic sound sources together with de Laborde's untreated stripped vocals lends their songs an almost archaic ageless quality where the sonic bedrock affirms the lyrical subject matter. The moment album opener One on One's chords unfurl it's apparent you're in store for a dark ride.
