- 3811-FILM MAKER WANTED - (collaboration with Hannes Smith)
When Rachael was a youngster, she started her classical training on the piano and violin but during her teenage years, her musical interests were drawn more towards alternative rock, indie and electronica. She started off recording piano and violin arrangements and progressed to creating soundscapes and programmed beats, merging the two worlds of contemporary classical and electronica.
Her influences range from Sufjan Stevens, The Flashbulb, Baths and Broken Social Scene to romantic classical composers such as Debussy and Chopin.
Her second EP, 'Too High' was released by Abandon Building Records (US) in August 2013 which contains remixes by successful artists Kelpe and Sunglitters to name a few. She released her first EP 'Back In Your Box' through Eleven Eleven label in late 2011.
Her pieces have been has been described as:
"contemporary and richly textured folk-leaning compositions that take in electronic and post-rock sounds" [Nialler9]
"hot-tempered rhythms of mathrock to chilly ambient dunes and waves" [Harmless Noise]
"she hits an off-kilter sweet spot between orchestral composition and hard, snare-driven beats that are devoted to details" [XLR8R]
"tragic yet powerful and mesmerising with hushed vocals, bittersweet piano and electronic flourishes"[Imagined by wolves]
