New song: Erin Durant – Rising Sun

The fourth and final single from Erin Durant’s forthcoming album ‘Islands,’ ‘Rising Sun’ is its raison d’etre, the grand statement that leads you by the hand into her sprawling, sun-dappled archipelago. Over a gently strolling guitar and muted toms, Durant sings ‘I’m going far, I’m going wide’, signalling her intention to embed you within her travelling time machine. A lesson in sophistication, ‘Rising Sun’ fuses strung-out trumpets with Durant’s balm-like voice. ‘Rising Sun’ is like the lavender you spread on your pillow to induce sleep. Lie with it, doze off and dream of magical lands.  

Islands is out June 28 on Keeled Scales

Editors note: I’m leading the UK PR campaign on this record. Erin is an artist I adore; it feels a shame to deprive our readers of her extreme talent hence why this article exists.
