NEW RELEASE: January Sounds 29/1/21

A Year Documented in Sound & Art – January Sounds & Sea Tower Film

Brawl Records is proud to present JANUARY SOUNDS from UK and Ireland based musicians Laura Cannell and Kate Ellis. Featuring Cannell’s signature evocative overbowed violin alongside Ellis’s deeply expressive cello playing. 

This release is the first in a series of twelve as part of a major new project: 

THESE FERAL LANDS – A Year Documented in Sound and Art. An ambitious and exciting creative documentation of 2021 from two innovative and highly acclaimed instrumentalists with new music released monthly, and bespoke films. Supported by the Arts Council of England.

‘Meeting each other has inspired us to create new music that reflects the optimism, the change and also strangeness which has affected both of our working lives. This project is both a sonic and visual diary, and a long distance call and response capturing a moment in time.’ 


We’re delighted to have been selected for the cover mount Top of the World CD of Jan/Feb Songlines Magazine #164 – Out Now. The track “Alone in the Wolf Thickets” was selected by the Comedian/Writer Stewart Lee, from the album These Feral Lands Volume 1, which was also reviewed in the magazine.
