Arianne Churchman and Benedict Drew

MAY, 2024

Sold out

MAY is a double-LP collection of recordings made between 2020–2023 by Arianne Churchman & Benedict Drew, whose ongoing series channels, inhabits and transmogrifies the vast corpus of traditional English folksong celebrating the most fertile of months. An auditory tapestry, MAY employs at its base a flank of analog synthesizers, field recordings and Churchman’s layered vocals, each combining to form a beautifully dizzy sonic collage that often spirals out across long durations into hypnotic rhythms and jubilant melodies.
