Archipelago are a genre-defying trio of adventurous musicians, formed out of the North East of England’s creative musical underground. Fronted by multi-instrumentalist and composer Faye MacCalman, their sound is a dreamlike collision of otherworldly atmospheres, heartfelt song-writing and energetic off-kilter rhythms. Moving between instruments and effects to create the illusion of a much larger ensemble, before peeling back to their raw, improvisational trio form, Archipelago’s uncompromising refusal to fit in one category makes for a fully-charged musical experience. In 2020, they headed into the studio to record the highly-anticipated new album ‘Echoes to the Sky’ due for release in 2021 in partnership with Newcastle’s growing New Jazz and Improvised Music Recordings label.
