South Wales siren Volenté is set to release a trio of songs called “Broken Promises”, seeing her further develop her electronic credentials. She has already received a host of critical acclaim – as she champions boundary blurring creativity and the creative imagination.
When she isn’t spending her time being a full-time mum, Volenté is an extremely talented artist, with many years of experience in the music industry. These tracks are a fusion of drum’n’bass, jungle, electronic, classical music and R & B, with heavy elements of dubstep thrown in for good measure.
We had a listen to the title track ‘Broken Promises’ and here’s what we thought:
Among the bric-a-brac and assorted objects, the silver-fish voice sparks out. Discovering it is like finding a diamond bracelet, unexpectedly, in your sock drawer.
Volenté’s voice is sweetly childlike, with a cotton-bud mildness that swells the low moaning yawning beneath the lattice-like structure of the song. A moodscape of echoes responds gently, turning to flocks of circling sea-gulls. This helps us to recall feelings of openness and isolation. © Neil_Mach
