Morchella combines lush otherworldly balladry with imaginative stop-motion animation in her striking new single and video Coat Of Arms — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“I wanted to take the listener on an atmospheric journey,” the London singer-songwriter says of the new song. “For me, this track is an expression of the complexities of every individual and just how much ‘lies beneath the surface.”
Seamlessly blending ethereal and enveloping production values with a tender brand of lyricism, the new single is anchored by haunting vocals as it holds space within its ranging soundscape. Accompanying Coat of Arms is a uniquely crafted stop-motion video by award-winning director Isabel Garrett.
Born and raised in Ukraine, the London-based Morchella has long drawn from her rich and varied musical education and experience: Choirs to orchestras, piano to guitar, songwriting to production. Under her previous nom de plume of Threepwood, she wrote, produced and released The Final Piece EP, receiving widespread acclaim. Morchella is currently collaborating with award-winning sound engineer Shuta Shinoda (Jehnny Beth, Hot Chip, Ghostpoet, Daughter, Anna Meredith, Babe) to record at Hackney Road Studios.
