Artist: Ana Silvera
Label: Gearbox Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 06 July 2018

Alt-folk singer and composer, Ana Silvera, releases her new album, Oracles, through Gearbox Records. The album showcases her uniquely ethereal yet direct brand of alt-folk and was originally conceived as a commission from the London Roundhouse for a performance alongside Imogen Heap, the Estonian Television Girls’ Choir and the Roundhouse Experimental Choir...

Oracles is a Folk music album for those who usually shy away from the genre. Ana Silvera's silver voice glides through these 7 songs (38 min, 18 sec) taking the listener on an emotional journey. The songs were written as a response to losing two close members of her family very suddenly. The lyrics tackle grieving, understanding and acceptance through folk legends.

It's a beautiful, not to mention emotional, collection which works best when played from start to finish as presented. The tracks get richer the further through the album you make it.

Oracles is a rich, incredibly powerful album which leaves you want to hear more.
