Clara Engel has been making music of a special beauty for about fifteen years and again this week’s A New Skin” is another album that enchants and impresses Toronto-born Clara Engel doesn’t need much to make music that makes a deep impression time and time again. Also A New Skin is made again with minimal means, but the effect is again maximum. The instrumentation on the album is sober but wonderful. The alternately swooning and earthy sounds are also accompanied this time by the equally beautiful and penetrating voice of Clara Engel, who takes you to dark and mysterious landscapes. Everything is recorded as mentioned with simple means, but what does it all come out of the speakers beautifully. Clara Engel is a unique and idiosyncratic musician, who makes beautiful albums on the assembly line. Also A New Skin is another one.

Canadian musician Clara Engel has been releasing music through her bandcamp page for more than 15 years. 
One time a loose song, the next time an EP, but also with some regularity a full album. They are albums that are cherished in small circles, but which are unfortunately unknown in wider circles.

Recorded at home in the autumn of 2020. This album is absolutely gorgeous. It’s probably Clara’s most accomplished work yet, and that’s saying a lot. The perfect accompaniment to short, dark, but beautiful days.


Released December 21st, 2020
