PLACES

Rie fu

Rie fu's UK Debut Album

In relocating from her native homeland to the leafy landscapes of her adopted home in Surrey, Japanese artist Rie fu (pronounced ree-ay) has followed her creative muse to connect both cultures using a unique approach that’s richly reflected in her poignant, beautiful and observational album, ‘Places’.

While communicating an honest exposition of her lifestyle, featuring authentic birdsong and the sound of rain on branches delicately interpret a harmony that’s both organic and in tune with nature. Thematically, tracks such as ‘Again’ (a song about commuting on the M25) and ‘Mirror’ reflect the irony of British rituals as seen from a foreigner’s perspective.
‘Places’ is the delightful result, and completes her shift from electronic to a more observational and spiritual sound. Right down to its self-painted cover art, Rie’s music is the perfect combination of music, art and nature.

‘Places’ – released on 15th March, features Rie on lead vocals, acoustic guitar and the delicate piano that creates the spine of the album, which is produced by Dan Cox at Urchin Studios - who has recorded many unique voices such as Laura Marling, Florence Welch, and Thurston Moore.
