As one half of electro-pop duo Kaleida, Vesper Wood's elegiac voice was heard by millions the world over as their devastating and sublime song ‘Think’ was the highlight of the soundtrack to ‘John Wick’ – with its emotional starkness and simplicity at odds with the violence of the film itself.
Other tracks found similar fame on ‘Atomic Blonde’ and ‘CSI’ before their breathtaking album ‘Tear The Roots’ was released to critical acclaim in 2017. Now, Wood is here with ‘Instar – her most revealing, raw and real work yet.
Recorded through Spring and Summer 2018 in Bristol with producer Ali Chant [whose credits include PJ Harvey, John Parish, Perfume Genius, Aldous Harding, Soccer Mommy and Jenny Hval], ‘Instar’ was fueled by Wood’s own profound experiences as a woman dealing with issues with fertility and reproductive health.
“Maybe there’s a healing feminine presence to the album,” she says of the record’s character. “A protective spirit."
A gossamer touch makes Vesper Wood’s organic and atmospheric sound all the more arresting. With just keys, strings and her voice at the forefront, there’s a vulnerability and fragility that echoes through these recordings with such conviction that they could never be considered a weakness. The simplicity of her approach blossoms with the opulence of feeling that you travel throughout the album. It’s a wrought journey, but while there’s a longing and a sadness, ‘Instar’ is Wood finding a sense of place: a better place and one of strength.
