FitkinWall 2019 : Shifter
‘Immaculate’ – BBC Music Magazine
‘Inventive and immersive’ – Uncut
FitkinWall straddle the musical worlds of contemporary classical, minimalism and humble electronica. Using harps, moog synth and red box, they spin a web of rhythmically intricate polyphony and interweaving melodies to produce highly focused music. As Songlines recently said, ‘it’s both widescreen and microscopic, subtle, uncluttered and thoroughly absorbing’.
FitkinWall are multi harpist Ruth Wall (Goldfrapp, Kneehigh, Ockham’s Razor, Kathryn Tickell) and composer Graham Fitkin (commissions for Yo-Yo Ma, Tate, Royal Albert Hall, New York City Ballet, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra etc). This autumn they will be joined for the first time by guitarist Alex Lee (Goldfrapp, Placebo, Florence And The Machine) to record a new album – ‘Shifter’. This will be released in early 2019, then later in the year they will be touring ‘Shifter’ through the UK, then to Europe and China.
