Gabie Strong’s new album for Dragon’s Eye Recordings, Wilding Sun, is immersive and sonically dense. Opening track, “Lavender,” is a recording from a recent live performance celebrating an exhibition by artist Pamela Jorden (who also did the cover art for the album) that’s solemn and expressive beneath its washed-out guitar explorations. Strong’s skill in bending familiar aural landscapes into new, elusive forms of expression is exciting and on “Lavender,” moving.
The incredible video was made by Strong herself, taking 2632 photographs and stitching them together in dizzying fashion. Cascading flora moves against the slowly-unfolding sonics and the dichotomy is dizzying yet engaging. “Lavender” breathes in the muted tones shifting like boughs moving in the wind.
Wilding Sun is out on November 12 via Dragon’s Eye Recordings. Pre-order below.
