Queen of the Meadow – Empty Room

The new video and single by Queen of the Meadow is called Empty Room. Watch the exclusive clip premiere at In De Ban Van:
http://www.indebanvan.nl/singer-songwriter/queen-of-the-meadow-empty-room/

The video is about Helen overcoming her fear of dancing, by working together with a professional dancer who she admires. She learned to dance on one day, and they shot the video the next day. In the choreography, that came to Helen during a nightly vision and features two opposite women in a sort of schizophrenic setting, you see Helen opening up and gaining self-confidence. The two dancers show the world what beautiful art you can create in a very short time, when you’re determined to try and take chances. Bravo!

Empty Room is the 2nd single of A Room To Store Happiness, the CD/LP that will be released on Tiny Room Records (NL) and Only Lovers Records (FR) on October 5, 2018. Pre-orders here:

Todd Tobias & Chloë March – Lallulow

T-C-Side-by-Side-Colour

Tiny Room Records presents Amialluma: a hypnotic 10-track collaboration between American musician Todd Tobias and English vocalist Chloë March. Dwelling in a mysterious hinterland somewhere between Cocteau Twins’ seminal Victorialand and The Caretaker’s Persistent Repetition of Phrases, Amialluma dances between the earthly and heavenly. Chloë March’s celestial voice shines a light through Todd Tobias’s dark, fantastical soundscapes, resulting in a sublime, uncanny experience that enraptures and unsettles in equal measure.

Through a process of improvisation sparked by the emotive power of Tobias’s music, March developed a lyrical world of word-invention sung into archaic lullabies and tales. The lyrics centre around a child’s journey from the safety of its mother’s arms through an ancient, shadowy world. Overcoming fear and meeting with otherworldly guides, the child finds independence and reveals a deep connection with nature.

Amialluma will be released on CD by Tiny Room Records, on September 4, 2018. Publishing through Hidden Shoal. Listen to the first single Lallulow here:

After the release of Aligned With Juniper (2016), Helen Ferguson withdrew from the writing process for several months. At that point, there was nothing new to say, no new stories to tell. This all changed after a major health breakdown. Following a prescription mistake, Helen found herself in a severe four-day psychotic state filled with paranoia and panic attacks. She realized she was becoming insane. Fortunately, the doctor figured out the problem and switched the medication, gradually fading the effects.

This marked the start of the new album by Queen of the Meadow, called A Room to Store Happiness. The first song that was written, and therefore guided the direction of the record, was Withdrawn. This song has a lively spirit, making it a thankful and hopeful ode to music and how it can save you in hard times. All songs on the record ended up with a stronger fighter spirit than before, creating a sense of empowerment.

Queen of the Meadow-5-(c)Olivier Seguin

A Room to Store Happiness is intimate but bright, melancholic yet combative. Helen and her (musical and life) partner Julien Pras made a sad record about moments of joy, stored in an old room. Feel free to enter the room and share this celebration of (all aspects of) life.
