Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Avawaves is Anna Phoebe and Aisling Brouwer - a classically trained duo who create ambient soundscapes based on an intricate interplay between violin and piano. Both are professional composers in their own right; Aisling for film and TV and Anna for the Royal Ballet School (as well as a session musician for enormous bands and artists), but it is through Avawaves that the pair carve out their own musical identity in collaboration with each other. Their exquisite second album Chrysalis is colored with a poignant sense of awe and wonder, evoking a universe of Avawaves, celebrating the magic of nature, imagination and the power of dreams. The album masterfully layers ethereal keys over swelling strings and pulsating synths in a series of euphoric epics. Sublime, celestial textures ebb and flow, building towards far-reaching climaxes where everything comes together in effortless, natural harmony. The bold expressive palette reveals the influence of surrealist artists such as Katharina Grosse and Hilma af Klint, as well as the films that shape their worlds, like Georges Méliès' A Trip to the Moon.
