Description

Hilary Woods' artistry is one of rare emotive reach. Her minimalist and compositional finesse combine with densely layered atmospheric instrumentation and dreamlike vocals to create music rich with both delicacy and intensity. The power at the heart of Colt is a siren's song, at once mysterious, dark and beautiful, pulling you in. Opening song "Inhaler" is a conceptual cry for oxygen, illustrating the desolation felt in the absence of a lost lover, but the song's velvet fluidity feels like a long, enveloping exhale. "Jesus Said" is an entrancing expression of abandonment and catharsis, seeking absolution where none can be found. Percussion is sparse and intentional throughout the record, and "Jesus Said" is one of few songs with prominent beats. When the beat finally breaks the tension of the longing introduction, it creates an intoxicating kaleidoscope of rhythm and improvised piano. Written and recorded at home in Dublin, Colt was mixed by and co-produced with James Kelly (WIFE, Altar of Plagues) in Berlin in the winter of 2017. The dynamics of the production serve to temper layers of instruments, giving the compositions breathing room to match their pacing.
