1 - NOCKALLS, ERICA - DARK MUSIC FROM A WARM PLACE - (LP) 
GENTLEMEN RECORDINGS


What happens when a classically-trained violinist explores the more twisted neighbourhoods of alternative pop? The work of Erica Nockalls provides the searingly accurate answer. If her albums Imminent Room and EN2 showcased her baby-sweet but barbed worldview, then new set Dark Music From A Warm Place takes that genre-neutral template and drowns it in honey-flavoured acid. Her songwriting is removed from the pop norm: Emotionally derelict, blunt and melodically unsparing. This album is a tale of release and re-appropriation of oneself, a call of empowerment. Dark Music From a Warm Place was conceived during a sad summer spent in Spain, then mixed and produced by Jean-Charles Versari in Paris, France. Gritty drum machines, generous synths, cutting tones mixed with unusual violins and glass-sharp vocals: Pesante melodies meet modern anthems. Erica Nockalls conservatoire training as a violinist and vocalist are evident, but not defining. She chooses danger and experimentation with her violin, making it a tool of creation, rather than accompaniment. Blunt. Honest. Generous. Theres a lid boiling on her British reserve.
