Murmurations is the third album from The Shee, showcasing once again their diverse range of influences stretching from folk, Gaelic and Bluegrass. As with the last two albums, The Shee arranged all the tracks together and the recording has no guest musicians. And, if you buy a copy, it will be unique!
The band are lucky enough to have a graphic designer in their ranks in the form of Lillias Kinsman-Blake. Lillias came up with the concept of designing every single album cover for Murmurations differently, giving the owner a completely unique piece of artwork. "Every single album cover has been individually illustrated,” she explains, “to represent the endlessly evolving flight patterns of the Starlings. We wanted to give people something unique and personal that couldn't be experienced from simply downloading the music. As a band, we feel that the music on this album is particularly honest. We keep returning to the dynamic of the individual and yet the interaction between the group and the way our music draws heavily on our individual influences while maintaining a collective sound. This is illustrated through the murmuration of starlings."
