A Dark Murmuration Of Words

Emily Barker - A Dark Murmuration Of Words

On A Dark Murmuration Of Words, UK folk singer Emily Barker searches out the invisible connections that shape a rapidly shifting modern world. Like the dark matter that makes up the bulk of the universe or the shape-shifting coordination of a flock of starlings at dusk, it’s the gaps of the unspoken, invisible, and unacknowledged where reality takes shape. Barker’s sixth full-length release, A Dark Murmuration Of Words is a timely exploration of climate change, racism, sexism, and myths of economic progress through the lens of what it means to return “home.”
