‘Wondering Stars’ On Dutch Radio Tonight

29th November 2015


in two hours you’ll be able to hear ‘Wondering Stars’ on the air again, this time on AAFM‘s excellent Xymphonia programme, broadcast directly from The Netherlands.

listen here

Xymphonia say:

“The song sounds immediately familiar, yet different to anything we’ve heard from Rhys Marsh… The first minutes (with rhythm box) and the final section (with reverb guitar) actually has something Bristol trip hop-ish about it, with pretty intense and creepy passages in between.”

tune in at 20:00 (CET) / 19:00 (UK time)!

Prog Magazine have just premiered the video for ‘Burn The Brightest Day’. Click here to see it.

They say:

Rhys Marsh has premiered the video for his track Burn The Brightest Day via Prog.

It’s the third single from The Autumn Ghost mainman’s debut solo album, Sentiment, released last month.

Marsh tells Prog: “Burn The Brightest Day is one of the most direct things I’ve ever recorded, both musically and lyrically. I filmed the video round the corner from my studio one sunny morning. I really love the retro nostalgia feel.”

The Norwegian-based singer, songwriter and producer says of Sentiment: “It’s my darkest and noisiest album so far. That encouraged me to step away from my comfort zones and really delve into more personal matters.”

I’m really, really happy to say that the first single from my new album will be premiered by NRK P13, on their ProgLogg show, today at 17:00 (if you’re in Norway / Europe, or 4pm in the UK). If you’re outside of Norway, for some context, this is one of the most popular radio stations, hence my excitement.

As with pretty much every album i’ve made, it feels like i’ve been working on it for ever, so i can’t wait to share it (so hopefully it might become a part of your life as well).

Oh, and whilst i’m at it, here’s the album cover, illustrated by the wonderful Viviana González!

The ‘Sentiment’ Sessions — pedal steel #1

1st October 2014


The next ‘Sentiment’ session video is played on my pedal steel guitar — an instrument i’ve loved for ever, have owned for a couple of years, and am still finding my way around. Tt’s a beautiful mystery!

For the equipment-curious, i ran it through a Space Echo, into a Vox AC-15 (for the gear-heads, it was then recorded with an early-seventies Sennheiser, through a Universal Audio pre-amp). I hope you enjoy!
