Alunah's fourth full-length album and Svart Records debut, Solennial, was recorded and mixed by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studios, England and mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios, England. The album features guest appearances by Charlotte ‘Chipper' Nicholls (Crippled Black Phoenix, Portishead) and Rich Harris (Oily Toys).
For 10 years, since first coming together in the English Midlands in 2006, Alunah have trafficked in a blend of the earthly and the unearthly. Over the course of their three albums – 2010's Call of Avernus, 2012's White Hoarhound and 2014's Awakening The Forest – the four-piece have been a constant force of progression into an individualized take on psychedelic and organic heft. Their material has never lacked structure or groove, but with the melodic vocals of guitarist Sophie Day ever at the fore, they keep an eye toward the ethereal as well.
Following in the footsteps of Svart alums Hexvessel and Jess and the Ancient Ones, Alunah arrive at the label preceded by a reputation for blending nature worship and heavy vibes with a grace that few can match, basking in a sun-soaked spirit of beauty and decay, folklore and deeply personal expression. Here they expand their sonic palette and build on their rich, engaging sound which always wanders but is never, ever lost.
