Swimming Bell – “Route 72”


“Route 72” is a track from Swimming Bell, the project of Katie Schottland. Her sound is ethereal and touching, playing on haunting folk in a way that expertly utilizes her smooth croon. The “through the pines we drove” transition adds an extra layer to the beauty, her escalating vocal presence intertwining with gliding acoustical passion. This is a beautiful project to keep an eye on.
