Track of the Day #123: Emma Pollock – Alabaster

Posted by Neil Wilson

Emma Pollock - Alabaster
Taken from the forthcoming album In Search of Harperfield, Emma Pollock‘s first solo album in 6 years, Alabaster is out Track of the Day today.

Complete with a sultry and dark sound, Alabaster is a hypnotising piece of music.  Notes hang in the air, and the plink and plonk of the strings and percussion create that mesmerising effect, like watching a pendulum swing back and forth.  Tender and sparse in moments too, letting Emma Pollock‘s incredible voice shine through.
