Leah Flanagan - Chills

Leah Flanagan - Chills
Leah Flanagan's new album Saudades was named after a wonderfully untranslatable word, that conjures a tangle of feelings that only the Portuguese, in their wisdom of the heart's joys and sorrows, could name with just one word. It is the perfect title for this elegant collection of heartfelt songs. Leah dives in deep with Saudades, a suite of songs that capture a full repertoire of the emotions that we carry into our relationships, romantic and otherwise.

The culmination of two years' work, Saudades was recorded live in the studio with Leah's band and music director/producer Niall Anderson, with several songs laid down completely live as vocal and instrumentation takes. Recorded at the studio of Midnight Oil's Jim Moginie and mixed by Paul McKercher (You Am I, Augie March). Leah's smokey voice is given full flight with her intuitive backing band driven.

A songwriter with Venetian, Aboriginal and Irish heritage, Leah Flanagan draws deep from a fascinating historical, geographical and cultural mix. Her incredible journey as an artist is detailed through Saudades, in which she writes an emotional history, one that resonates with her rich musicality; steeped in the complicated romance of deep feelings, wild at heart.

About this track...

Chills’ sets the scene as Leah's beautifully wry voice contemplates the heartache of being close to someone emotionally distant, feeling the wrongness and loving them anyway.
