Haunting debut album from The Magnetic North, the project from Erland Cooper (Erland and the Carnival), Simon Tong (Gorillaz, Verve, Blur) and Hannah Peel. 'Orkney: Symphony of The Magnetic North' was inspired by a dream of Erland's, in which he was visited by Betty Corrigall, an orcadian girl who in the 1770s committed suicide (having been outcast from her village for falling pregnant out of wedlock). The resulting long player, recorded in various locations across the Orkney Islands, is a collection of beautiful, evocative songs, at times reminiscent of Nancy and Lee, at others King Creosote and Jon Hopkins.
