LISTEN: Gazel – ‘Book Of Souls’

A classically trained string player and composer, Gazel has performed in venues such as Hammersmith Apollo, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, O2 Academy Islington, and Borderline. These are impressive feats for the newcomer who independently released her debut EP Bone Key in 2016, after studying at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music.

Gazel’s music encompasses the genres of pop, electronic & modern folk, and her new single ‘Book Of Souls’ is a mystic blend of all three. It’s the title track from her debut album, which she’s working on with a team that includes sound engineer Shuta Shinoda (Ghostpoet, Hot Chip) and Haydn Bendall (Kate Bush, Massive Attack, David Gilmour). The single also forms part of a musical Gazel is writing, inspired by the fictional cast of characters that inhabit our collective unconscious.

To celebrate the release of her new track, Gazel will be playing an intimate gig at Birthdays in Dalston on June 15th, hosted by Piu Entertainment UK (RSVP here). Listen to ‘Book of Souls’ below, and follow Gazel on Facebook for more updates.

Gazel’s debut album Book Of Souls will be released in Autumn 2018. Visit her website for more details.
