Gazelle Twin, aka composer, musician and producer Elizabeth Bernholz, and electronic drone choir NYX are set to release their debut collaborative album, Deep England, on March 19th through NYX Collective Records. The 8-track album is an electronic-choral expansion of Gazelle Twin’s acclaimed 2018 album Pastoral, featuring reworked tracks from it as well as some NYX originals. Rooted in English pagan and sacred music, Deep England was originally created for live performance with Movement Director Imogen Knight, Sound Associate Peter Rice and Designer Chloe Lamford and was recorded right after their premiere at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in November 2019. Gazelle Twin and NYX shared their reflection on the album:
“Here lies our ancient future, Deep England: our hope and compassion in the chokehold of power and glory.
Hand in hand, here we cry our rage: summoning a lament into the ether, a divine androgynous force, a transcendental purge of the dizzying chaos of post-truth Britain.”
Ahead of the album release, they have shared ‘Fire Leap’, serving as the first magnificent and uncanny single from the record. Take a listen to it below and check out the album trailer straight after.
