Manchester-based band Sylvette have announced a new track called Marble Stone, which was released on Monday 25th. It is from their upcoming third studio album. In keeping with their music released so far, it’s very atmospheric and imaginative – Marble Stone is accompanied by rich strings and delicate vocals. The band describe it as “using solitude, nature and meditation to detach from the painful feelings of grief that can feel claustrophobic.”
Marble Stone is self-produced and recorded by the band, who met at music college in Manchester.
There is a mini church tour to accompany the new music and Sylvette will be playing with a string quartet. The London gig is at St Pancras Old Church, an ideal venue for this band. It’s full of atmosphere, alone in its peaceful verdant surroundings yet strangely only within sight of St Pancras Station.
Of the upcoming music, band member Charlie says “We have been creating new arrangements of all our songs to incorporate the strings and we’re really excited about our upcoming gigs.”
He adds: “We wanted the song to feel like you’re floating in the middle of a glacial lake where your senses are totally awake but your mind is empty and peaceful. Perhaps in that moment when you are completely detached from the self you are the closest to your loved ones who have passed on.”
