Pierls body of work marked a shift to the dark with her previous album Arches. Inspired by the church organ, her music has an almost sacred and introspective undertone. This new approach really struck us like lightening. When the opportunity arose to collaborate on the new album Cluster, we did not hesitate. Cluster is the pendant record of Arches, and continues the story. The church organ again is the focal point of the album, sometimes in the forefront, sometimes lingering in the back, but never dominating the narrative. Partner and producer Koen Gisen restrained the drone in favour of compositions and songs. This results in a collection of eerie and hauntingly beautiful tracks that will surely leave its mark on your soul. The release of Cluster is a co-production between 9000 Records (by Consouling Sounds) and [PIAS], with 9000 records taking on the vinyl & CD version of the album and [PIAS] releasing the CD and digital album.
