Hannah Peel, the Northern Irish artist, singer and electronic composer and member of the The Magnetic North, Hannah Peelreleased her new solo album ‘Awake But Always Dreaming’ to great acclaim at the end of 2016, with Q Magazine describing the album as a ‘sublime electronic opus’ in their 4 star review.
Produced and recorded with long-term collaborator Erland Cooper, with orchestrations by Peel, both in their own, richly analogue studio in Shoreditch, London and at Attica Audio in County Donegal, Ireland, ‘Awake But Always Dreaming’ is a record about memory: the luminous and beautiful formation of memories and the devastating loss or slow, insidious damage to the mind.
“A beautiful record – one of the albums of the year” Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
