Tracks 3 and 9 feature guest vocals from Emily Millard.
Aerialists meld their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities and deep love for folk traditions into a post-rock coloured sound called prog-trad.
Featuring guitarist Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish & Bird), Scottish harpist Màiri Chaimbeul (Darol Anger & The Furies), and fiddler Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter), the quintet draws from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive textures and meticulously sculpted arrangements to create captivating, genre-defying new music.
