I’ve been listening to cellist Zoë Keating’s newest album, Into the Woods, and it is truly remarkable. Her ability to weave layers of melody together to create a feeling that is both melancholic, organic and exciting. You can almost see yourself walking through those titular woods; the bare branches and crunch of the leaves underfoot as the light wanes. Fantastic really.
