Austel shares her most evocative work yet – embracing expanse and depth on new single ‘Beds Of Stone’. Led by Austel’s signature haunting vocal, the lyrics depict a longing to reconnect, while feeling immobilised and adrift.
Inspired by a love of bands such as Cocteau Twins, The National and Daughter, ‘Beds Of Stone’ fuses wistful piano and ethereal vocals with swirling soundscapes and sonic artefacts.
Austel – aka Annie Rew Shaw – is a Devon-born London-based artist, songwriter and producer, crafting introspective, brooding music led by ethereal vocals and intimate lyricism.
Influenced by a wide range of artists spanning from Bon Iver to Thom Yorke, Cocteau Twins to Jon Hopkins, Nick Cave to Lykke Li, Austel fuses her background in classical music and songwriting with ambient textures, cinematic soundscapes and contemplative electronica.
