Brawl Records is proud to present FEBRUARY SOUNDS from UK and Ireland based musicians Laura Cannell and Kate Ellis. Featuring Cannell’s signature evocative overbowed violin alongside Ellis’s deeply expressive cello playing.

This is No.2 in a series of 12 releases as part of a major new project:

THESE FERAL LANDS – A Year Documented in Sound and Art. An ambitious and exciting creative documentation of 2021 from two innovative and highly acclaimed instrumentalists with new music released monthly, and bespoke films published at Caught by the River.

February Notes:
Kate and Laura create conversations through wood, strings and fragmented songs, ebbing and interweaving their emotions through compositions and solitary performance. Except that there is no conversation around the music prior to recording, the four tracks which make up February Sounds explore each musicians true feelings expressed as spontaneous, untouched improvisations with raw emotion. The music remains largely unedited and settles somewhere between stark beauty and glowing embers. A new world to immerse ourselves in, while our immediate geographies stay the same.

“Meeting each other has inspired us to create new music that reflects the optimism, the change and also strangeness which has affected both of our working lives. This project is both a sonic and visual diary, and a long distance call and response capturing a moment in time.” LC & KE 2021

Supported by the Arts Council of England.


released February 26, 2021

All tracks were composed, recorded & mixed remotely in Suffolk and Essex by Laura and Kate.
