8/10 Mike Staff review, 27 February 2013

Here’s the latest album from composer, arranger and cellist-to-the-stars Julia Kent, her first on the Leaf Label after two previous albums on Important. It’s a sombre neoclassical affair with lots of mournful strings, graceful touches on guitar and piano and I think I spotted a harpsichord. The dominant texture is the sweeping, cinematic strings, though, save the creepily Swans-esque dark ambient pulse’n’throb of mid-set breather ‘Kingdom’.

It’s bringing to mind the cinematic sadness of Craig Anderson, but in a softer, more organic context which brings to mind Rachel’s or that amazing recent Poppy Ackroyd album. Fans of smooth modern neoclassical gazing-into-the-middle-distance sad times like Nils Frahm, Max Richter and Olafur Arnalds will find it most seductive, I’m sure.
