Allume has just released 'Paperbark', a gorgeously spacious exploration of lingering love and the first single off her upcoming EP.
Being the lo-fi solo project of Elena Nees (one half of Adelaide electronic duo Hummingbird), Allume has backed up Tracy Chen, Oliver White and recently supported Ball Park Music and Safia.
'Paperbark' navigates a landscape somewhere between the ambience of Julianna Barwick and the hushed vocals of Lykke Li. It is intimate, an effort to make sense of unsettling feelings.
"It’s about a bit between two relationships, when there's still a lingering left over bit of one love, and sorta conceding there always will be, the sensation of those two loves residing alongside each other... but also the necessary letting go of one to make room for the newer, present love,” says Elena.
Allume's EP Why Move Very Fast At All will be released digitally and on limited cassette through Healthy Tapes in late November.
