The Silver Field

Room

The Silver Field, aka Coral Rose releases her debut album, Rooms, out on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings. Rooms was recorded in Coral Rose’s bedroom and on the album instruments such as the double bass, cello, guitar, mandolin, harmonium and a bagpipe chanter form loops and layers, her father’s old SPX-90 drenching the rich sounds in delays and reverbs. Rooms is the perfect introduction to the sound world of Coral Rose and friends: the EVI (electronic valve instrument, a breath controlled analogue synth) is introduced on the opening track, Afire, via Cathy Lucas (Vanishing Twin), and Kiran Bhatt (Red River Dialect) drums on Rain.

Rooms follows recent releases on O Genesis by Daniel O’Sullivan (VELD) and Richard Youngs (Belief), and like O’Sullivan and Youngs, whose albums are very much tied to a place – the home, whether through themes or creation – in this case, The Silver Field’s Rooms is focused on leaving a home behind, both physically and emotionally.
