Selke – Rise
Release Date: Out Now
This is the debut release from Devon duo Selke who comprise of the twin talents of Maz McNamara and Esme Storm. ‘Rise’ is a gently plucked acoustic delight with mournful cello notes underpinning the jazzy rhythm and melody on the guitar. However, the real star is the atmosphere the pair create with this simple musicianship and gorgeous folk harmonies that creates a genre sitting somewhere between jazz, folk, soul and indie to soothe the soul. It would be lazy of me to draw comparisons with Sound of the Sirens but regular readers will know how highly I regard that pairing so it is certainly meant as a compliment. There’s an EP to follow in December and big things in 2021 surely, if Covid allows.
