Somnambulistic is the staggering new full-length album from ambient dream-folk artist Plum Green, out now through Nefarious Industries.
Watch the video for the album’s latest single “Moon of Honey” below:
Born in a squat in England, raised in New Zealand, and presently residing in Australia, Plum Green combines elements of folk, grunge, goth, and post-rock with her dark and moving lyrical prose. Green’s voice aches with the ocean’s desire to connect and divide. Summoning ghosts, lovers, and other creatures of the night, Green’s poignant hymns are at once deep, haunting, and alluring.
Somnambulistic is a stirring collection of dark lullabies. Each of its nine tracks ebb and flow with otherworldly grace manifesting one pulsing dream narrative. Guided by guitar, Green’s voice travels through walls of bowed soundscapes. A variety of different instruments are featured including classical string arrangement and the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ, which is said to be the largest musical instrument in the Southern Hemisphere.
Produced and mixed by Daniel J. Cross at The Pool Room in Melbourne, Australia with a string quartet engineered by Jesse Oberin at Crosstown Studios, Somnambulistic also features collaborators Tonal Noir from Macedonia and Valentina Veil (VV & The Void) from Berlin.
On the release of “Moon of Honey,” Plum Green states:
“A summoning spell is cast leaving the physical form behind to explore a celestial body. Soft and warm, with tides of liquid sugar. Anointed as a creature of this world, you’re welcome to rest here peacefully.”
