LATEST RELEASE: The World is Loud
Available on all music platforms April 1, 2022
Recorded in the weeks before the pandemic, The World is Loud is a journey through the unconscious realm, the feminine, sexuality, and the disintegration of identity, set against the backdrop of the natural world. The album traverses many disparate emotional spaces, from indignation to reverence to detachment to despair. The sonic landscape is frenetic, sparse, and sorrowful, haunted by harmonic dissonance as the vocal lines weave unpredictably. It offers a harrowing, sometimes surreal lens into hidden and intimate places within the self. The human voice is the entryway into Heddwen’s mysterious world, one that exists in the borderland of invisible realities.
