Acoustic Neo-Classical / Folk ! Keeping up with the tradition established at Equilibrium, “Embrace the Fool” is released in beautifully designed Digipak, including a twelve page booklet containing all the lyrics, band photos and release information.
The startling debut by Poets to their Beloved, the German / Dutch duo who conquered physical distance through proximity of hearts, is finally ready for release. Under the title “Embrace the Fool”, their first opus gathers thirteen songs, written over the four year period that followed since the duo's first meeting in Ireland.
Saskia Dommisse and Marcel Schiborr had travelled there to attend a Brendan Perry workshop, where a singular musical connection between both was forged.
On the verge of neo-folk, the album presents a unique atmosphere built on stringed instruments such as acoustic guitars, cello, violin and bass.
Although a romantic tone is found throughout most of the disc, the compositions also often possess a ritualistic essence where male and female voices rise webbed to the pulsating percussions.
Singing of love, loss, forlorn tales and old rituals, Saskia and Marcel invite us into the bleak forest of their souls, where an uncharacteric sense of optimism shines through the treetops to shed some light upon the shady path...
