Jolanda Moletta is premiering a new video with The Moderns today, from her striking collection of vocal recordings entitled Nine Spells. The disc is out on the Ambientologist label.
Moletta sings with a folk band called She Owl. Her vocals can also be found on The Sweet Wait by Pepo Galán and Karen Vogt. She says this solo release is a tribute to nine female ancestors.
“Singing beyond words is a way to express an entire lifeline in one single breath, a way to represent and move emotional mountains, clouds full of tears and winds of laughter, infinite gardens where memories and desires intertwine and work together,” she writes in the notes. “The purpose is to break the frame and let the paint spread throughout the wall.”
