Inti Rowland gracefully emerges from the London folk scene with single ‘Masks of Winter’ – the first released track from his debut full length out in April, recorded in a converted chapel in the Scottish highlands and reflecting the cool stillness and tranquillity of the surrounds of its birth.
‘Masks Of Winter’ is a dreamy surge of quivering violin, warm vocals, glowing harp and fluttering string. Band Sam Rowe, Evie O’Driscoll, Mia Bleach and Angie Rance add full musical body and choral voice to Rowland’s vocals, imbued with a Laura Marling-esque intimacy, lifting the track to full heart-fuelled proportions. Dipping into full layered melodics and sensitively delivered voice, Inti Rowland delivers an engaging and poignant mythical winter tale through sound.
Also listen to Rowland’s vocal melodies echoed by deep violin in ‘Cotton Dandelion Dress‘ from 2011 EP ‘Eyes Of A Starling‘ recorded in a barn near a Welsh hillside forest –
