Russell The melodic moments are thoroughly '60s in feel, when these combine with the harder contemporary electronica you have stuff which is up there with early Aphex Twin .

Favorite track: Ecovocative.

Peter Warren I'm a longtime Delia devotee and Electrosonic fan. Fir Wave captures the spirit but feels effortlessly fresh. Rich, deep and lush electronic music. Favorite track: Reaction Diffusion.

Steven Moses Hannah Peel's brand of techno is like a more acidic Kelly Lee Owens, with wind instruments added in. "Emergence In Nature" is an especially stunning groove. Favorite track: Emergence In Nature.

Ann Magnuson Each track telling its own story of hope, despair, love, perplexion, this album is an affectionate appreciation of the past while conjuring a clairvoyant image of the future. I stand in awe, defenseless Favorite track: Carbon Cycle.

’There's a deep sense that the two women, generations apart, are in tandem’
★★★★ The Skinny

8/10 Uncut

'Wait until the right time of night, put on your headphones and it becomes entirely transporting.’
★★★★ The Arts Desk

'More powerful than lyrics, each track communicates its own panorama...each sprawling terrain trailing beyond the horizons of human comprehension.’
8/10 Loud And Quiet

“Pure ingenuity… tapestry of curve-balling electronica”
The Thin Air

“The sound of natures internally evolving patterns and cycles, green shoots and roots wrapping themselves around vintage analogue effects and made to sound like a 21st C arboretum rave”
Elizabeth Alker - Unclassified BBC Radio 3


The new Hannah Peel album arrives with a fascinating history.

As Peel explains, “The specialist library label KPM, gave me permission to reinterpret the original music of the celebrated 1972 KPM 1000 series: Electrosonic, the music of Delia Derbyshire and the Radiophonic Workshop.”

Her process of re-sampling and generating her own new digital instruments, allowed for fresh inspiration in pioneering, experimental electronics from the early 1970s is at the core of the album. Peel has made connections and new patterns that mirror the Earth’s ecological cycles through music.

Peel explains, “I’m drawn to the patterns around us and the cycles in life that will keep on evolving and transforming forever. Fir Wave is defined by its continuous environmental changes and there are so many connections to those patterns echoed in electronic music - it’s always an organic discovery of old and new.”
