Taken from Rachael Dadd‘s new album “FLUX” – which is out 08 November 2019 via Memphis Industries.
“Starting out as a solitary trickling stream of songs and then growing in momentum through some life-affirming collaborations, “Flux feels” ready to fledge at this timely time.
It’s been quite a journey, and not just the making of the album. I’ve felt huge external tides carrying us collectively, while internal tides carry us individually. The 11 songs on the album are my response to these tides I’ve been experiencing over the last 5 years.
First to fledge ahead of the full album is the first single “Cut My Roots”. Inspired by personal experience of my country’s strict visa laws, it’s a protest against recent political tides and a general rise in white supremacy. I wanted to speak up for our collective liberties. When it came to making the music video with Sam Wisternoff, I chose the context of our oppressive past which although is no longer in living memory, still echoes all around us today.
Connection, communication, cooperation and collaboration feel key. So on this note I want to say a massive thank you to all the friends who’ve collectively crafted this album with me: Marcus Hamblett, Emma Gatrill, Rob Pemberton, Jim Barr, Kate Stables, Rosalind Leyden, Jesse Vernon, Mo Vernon Stables, Ben Hampson, Paul Blakemore and Betsy Dadd. Gratitude runs deep.“
