Welsh Singer-songwriter Volent� returns in April 2012 with her stunning new single 'Hollow', released on April 30th. Available online everywhere and by texting 'track volente' to 80818 in the UK, or straight to your phone by texting 'track volente m' to80818.
Having recently returned from living in Canada where she regularly performed for the British Columbia Songwriters and Alberta Arts Associations, Volent� releases her single, with an album to follow later in 2012 with a string of live dates.
Compared by critics to the likes of Bjork, cult indie favourites the Sundays and Kate Bush, 'Hollow', written, produced, arranged and performed by Volent� herself represents a slight change in direction for the singer-songwriter: "Even though I sing and play guitar, I am hugely influenced by modern dance music such as dubstep", said Volent�. "I have incorporated some of those elements into this latest single, whilst keeping to my own unique style -- I hope you like it!"
Volent� previously released two studio albums, "Butterflies Fall Away" and "Cold Clean" to critical acclaim:
"Her voice can change from a little girl to experienced woman in a second and back, bouncing between wonder and wisdom" The Void
"Crammed with flair and talent" South Wales Argus
"continually combines minimalism and lushness" Sound Nation
"Full of wide-eyed wonderment...wonderfully strange tunes" Logo Magazine
"A unique style...definitely worth a listen if you're open-minded about your music" Big Issue
Since starting out as a session singer in London in the late -1990s, and after having collaborated on many musical projects, South African born Volent� has previously gigged throughout the UK and you can catch her live with her band to launch the single during May.
Volent� Single launches:
