One half of conceptual indie rockers Fiery Furnaces with her brother Matthew, Eleanor has focused on her solo career since FF went on hiatus in 2011. New album ‘New View’, her third, has been released to much critical acclaim. Elegantly and poignantly written the album displays a new maturity and confidence in her music, our favourite track is ‘He Didnt Mention His Mother’, a nod to the little details in life that motivate us. And that is the heart of her work, a wistful spellbinding journey through life anchored by the beauty of her voice. Highly recommended and a real treat live.
