Written predominantly from Lissie’s new home in northeast Iowa, Castles represents a spiritual, as well as musical development. It’s a portrait of an artist who has always been on the move, and is finally creating a sense of permanency – a chance to catch her breath and reflect. Lissie’s three previous albums, Catching a Tiger (2010), Back to Forever (2013), and My Wild West (2015) all hit Top 20 in the UK charts, with her latest effort reaching #16.
When an auteur like David Lynch is saying you’re “head and shoulders above anything [he’s] heard in a long time”, it’s probably time to believe the hype. Lissie was one of the first musicians Lynch wanted to be included in the revival of Twin Peaks, and NME wrote of her ‘intense’ appearance: “Closing the episode with the Stevie Nicks-esque ‘Wild West’, Rock Island’s most exciting troubadour more than earned her Lynch-commissioned screen time.”
Support comes from Montreal’s Milk & Bone (Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin) who create melodies that are both dreamy and harrowing. Made up of electronic textures and layered synths which explore the darker aspects of love, friendship and lust.
