GAZEL'S BOOK OF SOULS
DEBUT ALBUM OUT THIS OCTOBER

"born from another dimension… she recalls everyone from Kate Bush to Robyn, all while sculpting her own identity" - CLASH

Genre-blending British/Turkish songwriter and producer Gazel has released her new single, 'Rain Is Coming', the latest track to be taken from her upcoming debut album Gazel's Book Of Souls, out this October.

Swelling and emotive, 'Rain Is Coming' opens to a flowing synth underpinning traditional instrumentation, which gradually builds through diaphanous melodies into an electrifying crescendo of layered vocals and driving polyrhythms. "'Rain Is Coming' is about the double-bind of being required to grow spontaneously from childhood into acceptable adulthood," explains Gazel.

"If I had advice for a child
It would be to run and hide
Before you're ripped from the earth inelegantly
And taught to long-divide"

The track is the fourth single to be taken from her enthralling debut album, Gazel's Book Of Souls, following the captivating ' Mina's Hymn', ' Pointing At The Moon' and the ethereal ' You're Not Funny'.

The album follows the esoteric story of Gazel, who seeks to find the cause of a mysterious fire which destroyed her village, and in the process encounters a variety of 'souls' who dwell in our collective unconscious, each of which is represented by a different track on the album. Influenced by Jungian archetypes, mystical philosophy and the folk music of her Middle-Eastern roots, the album is an eclectic and captivating blend of subtle electronica, folk and pop.



Gazel has previously performed sold-out shows at venues including the Borderline, The Waiting Room, Birthdays and St Pancras Old Church, and appeared at this year's Sound City. She has also received extensive radio support from the likes of Tom Robinson at 6Music and Janice Long at BBC Radio Wales, as well as recently performing a session for talkRADIO.
