Out today, the eclectic Italian-born singer Marta Del Grandi releases new single ‘Shy Heart’ taken from her new album ‘Until We Fossilize’ released on November 5th 2021 on Fire Records.
New track ‘Shy Heart’ is rife with images of the animals trying to escape the bush fires in Australia and is inspired by a chanced upon article. The song recalls Joni Mitchell if she were orchestrated by Robert Kirby.
Released alongside a gorgeous new video that features the illustrations of Italian artist Cecilia Valagussa. The video was recorded in one-shot and directed by Turin based filmmakers, Ratavöloira; it sees Valagussa bringing her illustrations to life through a majestic live performance that features Marta in the woods interacting with a big red cat through overhead projections.
“A fantasy narrative seemed to be like the only possible key to address a theme like the bush fire, for how unreal and unbelievable it was.” Marta Del Grandi
Filled with thoughts and emotions, stories, rumours and beliefs, new album ‘Until We Fossilize’ is an unravelling of time and distance; a self-produced gem filled with life-affirming couplets and dramatic turns over electronic synths, classical structures and ambient soundwaves.
Marta Del Grandi is an award-winning jazz vocalist navigating new territory, crossing borders of genre and style from West Coast ‘60s to ambient exotica, from plaintive Lynchian etherealism to dramatic Morricone scores.
Catch her live with Brigid Mae Power in the UK from late November
