“a welcome surprise … intimate, confessional lyrics and disarming melodic twists” (Mojo)
“uplifting and organic, sunny folk pop … her languid delivery of lilting melodies and sun-kissed vocals make for a hazy and sensual atmosphere” (Time Out)
Rachel Goswell’s long-awaited debut album is released on Monday 14th June.
Buy Rachel Goswell’s Waves Are Universal from Amazon
Made with co-writer Joe Light and producer David Naughton, “Waves Are Universal” is an unexpected delight – recorded organically, Rachel’s voice is augmented by the lightest of ambient touches, whether it comes swathed in the natural reverb of Chislehurst Caves or surrounded by the gentle atmospheres of the various field recordings that Rachel and David made whilst they were working on the album. The record reveals serious songwriting skills that encompass the featherlight ascent of “Plucked” as effortlessly as the dense, shimmering groove of “Coastline”, and it triumphantly justifies the faith that so many Slowdive and Mojave 3 fans have had in Rachel as a genuine talent in her own right.
To celebrate the release of “Waves Are Universal”, Rachel is playing a one-off show at the Jazz Cafe in London. This takes place on Wednesday 16th June.
