When Hania Rani reintroduced herself this spring with Hello, the preliminary taster for her new album, Ghosts, it most likely startled many who’ve come to love her work – otherworldly yet upbeat, the song serves as a perfect initiation to the pianist and composer’s supernatural talent.
Both a welcome to Ghosts’ universe and a farewell of sorts to the past, Hello is a siren’s call -over 13 tracks of unfolding ambience and endlessly refracting synths, Rani passes gracefully between distinct, richly textured worlds joined by bassist and Moog player Ziemowit Klimek as well as a host of guest musicians including Patrick Watson, Portico Quartet’s Duncan Bellamy and Ólafur Arnalds.
Rani, who grew up in Gdansk, Poland, has always embraced broad horizons – far broader than her strict, two-decade training as a pianist might initially suggest. Alongside her classical activities, most notably award-winning collaborations with cellist Dobrawa Czocher, she was also one half of Poland’s respected alternative pop duo Tęskno, and even scored Piotr Domalewski’s I Never Cry, winner of the 2020 Polish Film Festival’s Best Score award.

“Sublime and minimalist.”
Mark Coles (BBC Radio 4)
Emerging from the diverse Manchester music scene, singer, songwriter and producer Caoilfhionn Rose ties together remnants of the city’s vibrant musical past with its evolving present.
Her sophomore album, ‘Truly’, which was co-produced by Keir Stewart of The Durutti Column, moves through a tapestry of curious musical inflections; nods towards folk, jazz, ambient, electronica and even a subtle influence of psychedelia.
