Marley Carroll ‘Flight Patterns’

“I feel like sometimes the best thing you can do is to go outside and point a microphone at the sky,” Marley says. “Music studios are designed to be these perfectly-sealed enclosures where the environment is precisely controlled and you’re surrounded on all sides by a nest of reassuring technology. But now my attention has been drawn outwards towards bird songs, insect swarms, falling water, swishing tree branches and the expansive sonic colors of outdoor spaces. This elevated sensitivity to the interlocking rhythms of the natural world is at the heart of this record. I think it represents a widening of my perspective and a renewed appreciation for the astonishing totality of nature.” – Marley Carroll
