Getting noisy with Mary Anne’s Polar Rig

Many years ago I visited the incredible Svalbard which is roughly 1500km from the North Pole – it is part of a Norwegian group of islands known as Spitsbergen. While I was there I visited a property called Mary-Ann’s Polar Rig. It was a quirky little place and I remember it well and have always […]

Swedish singer Coral’s new single from debut album

Coral (aka Miranda Coral Engholm) grew up in rural Sweden but has roots in both Sweden and Argentina. She has one of those voices that makes you melt into your chair and smile with joy. We sense echoes of Laura Marling, but glossed with her soft Swedish accent. We are rather smitten with her recent gorgeous […]
