Poppy Ackroyd Pause
Release Date: November 12, 2021
Label: One Little Independent
Classically trained Brighton UK based performer and composer Poppy Ackroyd has returned with her fourth full length album, Pause.
A collection of 10 solo piano works written during the pandemic and shortly after the birth of her first child, the title refers to the feeling of normal life being temporarily put on hold. The graceful new single “Murmurations” is based on the collective movement of starlings. Using repetition and subtle changes, it focusses on big, sweeping migrations, until it fixes on a singular bird’s journey.
