Burd Ellen is a new solo project from Debbie Armour (Alasdair Roberts, Green Ribbons, Alex Rex) featuring Gayle Brogan (Pefkin, Electroscope). The group uses traditional song to explore and evoke dark landscapes and deep stories. Innovative instrumentation, drone and sound-wash support detailed vocal work to create a unique sonic atmosphere.
Collaborating with artists such as Luke Sutherland (Mogwai, Rev Magnetic) and Jayne Dent (MeLostMe), the group are carving out a sonically adventurous niche, but one that is informed by a deep love and respect for traditional song.
”the idea of Burd Ellen is to discover new ways to explore the British folk tradition and this record certainly accomplishes that … haunting” – The Wire Magazine
