The new record on Tartaruga is the debut album from Petrels, called Haeligewielle.
It is a swirling cataract of a record, a deluge of beautiful noise and crushing melody, which ebbs and flows beneath the surface.
Utilizing bowed strings, discarded electronics, found percussion and occasional vocals, the record unfolds over seven tracks and fifty minutes, from the portentous drone of the opening ‘After Francis Danby’ and shimmering ‘Silt’ through the work-song-like ‘Concrete’ and cascading rhythm of ‘Winchester Croydon Winchester’.
Haeligewielle tells a forgotten story, buried underneath the stones and water. We hope you like it.
Available in a beautiful screen-printed sleeve in custom Tartaruga packaging, this was produced in an initial run of just 100 numbered CDs (full glass-mastered CDs), and a second run of a further 100 CDs, also individually numbered. The album will also be available digitally.
There is also a very limited 2-colour screen-printed poster available, featuring the stunning artwork from the record. Just twenty of these posters have been made, and this website is the only place to get them. Each one is individually numbered, and each purchase of the poster will come with a free download of the record.
