Oly Ralfe – Notes From Another Sea


Oly Ralfe’s debut solo album, Notes From Another Sea, will be released this Friday 13th April 2018.

An instrumental piano album, Notes From Another Sea was recorded in part at Visconti Studio in late 2016 with the help of some of our talented student interns. The project is available on VINYL, CD and DIGITAL, with the vinyl limited to 500 hand-numbered copies.

‘Close-miked and immaculately recorded, each of the album’s 14 instrumental piano pieces glow, delicately, with intimacy and immediacy. A rewarding bonus is that the mood of consoling, redemptive melancholia stays with you long after the event, magically imbuing every thought, person and object with a hitherto unremarked significance. The twirling four-note patterns of Melusine suggest windborne dandelion seeds, the fathomless pauses in The Bridge contain as much emotional substance as the notes; and in the formal prettiness of Hear Me Yourself and Night Raven, the subtlest intimation of disquiet shades the very back of the picture.’

The album is available from all good record shops and digital stores. Here’s a selection of pre-order links:
