Erland Cooper - Sule Skerry //Phases// (Released 17th May)




£16.99 – LP

Following on from last year’s solo debut album, Solan Goose, Sule Skerry is the second album by Erland Cooper in a triptych shaped by his homeland, Orkney, and in particular by the air, sea and land as it was celebrated by Orcadian poet George Mackay Brown. Solan Goose (an album of the year at 6Music, The Quietus, Music OHM and more) portrayed the air, and on Sule Skerry, the multi-instrumentalist turns his attention to the sea.

Erland Cooper explains, “It’s a record about the sea, our relationship with the outside world, forces outside of our control but it’s also about creating a nest within that, nurturing and protecting our own sea havens, those sheltered bays, those safe places, as we step in and out, always returning back in some form”.
