EPHEMERA is Hazel King's debut album, recorded at Tracehorse Studio in Nashville, TN in December 2019 by the same team that recorded & produced Lucy Dacus's critically acclaimed LP "Historian". EPHEMERA is a dream-like exploration of emotion and desire. It is an expression of yearning, a search for home and belonging amidst the loneliness and disorientation of a human life. Sparse, chant-like melodies paired with synthesizers, found sounds, sonic distortions create a haunting, dreamy, ethereal landscape.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
WOW, WHAT A HAUNTING AND MOODY SOUND. THE SONGWRITING, VOCAL APPROACH, AND PRODUCTION ALL WORK TOGETHER TO CONJURE A MISTY HAZY KIND OF "EPHEMERAL" SPACE. SOFT AROUND THE EDGES BUT WITH A POWERFUL EMOTIONAL CORE.
WELLS HANLEY / PIANIST, COMPOSER, IMPROVISER
THE VOICE, THE LYRICS—ETHEREAL, MAGICAL, JUST BEAUTIFUL. STARLIT ESCAPE AND ECHO FRANKLY MOVED ME TO TEARS.
ALEXANDER TRIVAS / POET & EDUCATOR
ONE OF THE MOST MAGICAL VOICES I'VE EVER HEARD. [EPHEMERA] HAS INVENTED A NEW GENRE OF MUSIC.
TARA SRIVASTAVA / SINGER
A STUNNING PIECE OF ART. [EPHEMERA] IS LIKE A SOUND PAINTING FOR SOME OF THE HARDEST EMOTIONS TO FEEL.
