Ana Silvera

Oracles (Gearbox Records)

£17.50

Released: 6th July 2018
12" Vinyl LP

Poignant, dreamlike, beautiful and written following the sudden loss of her mother and brother, Oracles was Silvera’s way to transmute her grief into a cathartic work of art.
The result is a haunting yet life-affirming collection of songs whose lyrics explore loss, love, salvation and the journey towards acceptance, themes that are underscored by beguiling, weaving choral lines, mellifluous Debussian piano melodies, subtly off-kilter percussion and rapturous strings, all unified by Silvera’s dynamic vocal style which evokes the delicate yet theatrical prowess of Kate Bush, combined with what the Arts Desk described as a “Björk-like spontaneity.”
