track of the week ~ 'esoteric path' ~ rachael boyd

Name; Rachael Boyd
For fans of; Ludovico Einaudi, Meanwhile Back In Communist Russia, Sufjan Stevens

We're admittedly a little late to the party with this one, but that can't take away from the stunning beauty of experimental artist Rachael Boyd's latest creation. 'Esoteric Path's slow building lullaby evolves so gradually that you don't even realise it's happening.

One of Boyd's most compelling compositions to date, the harmonious interplay between her vocal samples, haunting Irish strings and that soft electronica she does so well is exceptionally beautiful here.

Championed by Hidden Machine's Nikki MacRae, 'Esoteric Path' is hopefully the start of even more exciting times for the solo career of Rachael Boyd. On this evidence, it certainly should be.
