Colleen is the name under which French multi-instrumentalist Cécile Schott has been performing music since 2003. In 2013 she released The Weighing of the Heart, her first in six years. Luckily the wait for her next has not been so long. Captain of None is due for release via Thrill Jockey on April 7th, you can hear the title track below:
Captain of None sees a shift in how she produced the album. Where previously her music centred on the use of sample-based or looped, minimal compositions she now uses her viola and voice as the central focus. The album promises to be her most melodic, as she explores new territory. “Captain of None is inhabited by delicately crafted, other-worldly pop songs incorporating dub-inspired techniques.”
More on the release soon.
