The new Hinterlandt album Seven Tales is a song cycle I wrote to move the band’s progressive indie-chamber music into a more lyrical and poetic realm. Storytelling is key as seven fictional characters experience tragic anecdotes, beautifully brought to life by classically trained vocalist, Nicole Smede. The album is on Bandcamp and on all the usual digital platforms now.
