The new record on Tartaruga is the debut album from Petrels, and it is called Haeligewielle. It is a swirling cataract of a record, a deluge of beautiful noise and crushing melody, which ebbs and flows beneath the surface.
Utilizing bowed strings, bent electronics, found percussion and
occasional vocals, the record unfolds over seven tracks and fifty
minutes, from the portentous drone of the opening ‘After Francis
Danby’ and shimmering ‘Silt’ through the work-song-like ‘Concrete’ and cascading rhythm of ‘Winchester Croydon Winchester’. Haeligewielle tells a forgotten story, buried underneath the stones and water. We hope you like it.
The album is initially available in a limited run of 100 copies only. These full glass-mastered CDs are housed in screen-printed gatefold cardboard, sewn together and individually numbered.
