Music in the Chamber: The Darkling Air: Isobel Anderson

When songwriter and vocalist Rachel McCarthy (Farriers) met composer and producer Michael Keeney (Foy Vance, Duke Special) while mixing a record in Donegal some years ago, a future collaboration was inevitable.

A simple notion to write some songs together in late 2015 quickly and organically grew into The Darkling Air.

They will be joined by Arco String Quartet who have worked closely with Rachel and Michael for many years and play on the album.

Expect ambient soundscapes and haunting vocals underpinned by guitar, piano and strings.

Isobel Anderson is a Belfast-based musician and sound artist, originally from Brighton in East Sussex. To date, Isobel has self-released and produced three studio albums and has a PhD in Sound Art. Her music has over 15 million plays on Spotify, and has been played on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC 6 Music and The Guardian’s Music Podcast. Isobel features on two of Passenger’s albums, and has released a collaboration EP with violinist Ruby Colley titled The Sussex Sessions.

"I love this record... Real effortless simplicity. Dark path is a great album." Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
