COC     001     BRONA MCVITTIE          WE ARE THE WILDLIFE             CD      02.2018

We are the Wildlife is the debut solo LP from celebrated Irish folk chanteuse and
harpist Brona McVittie. We are the Wildlife is a psycho-geographic journey through
a collection of traditional folk ballads and original compositions inspired as much
by the geometries of London's urban fringes as by the sonic phenomena within the great
rural landscapes of Mourne. This mixing of traditional songs with her own compositions,
and thematic ties between songs old and new, coupled with the use of traditional
instruments (harp/flute/strings, etc.) against subtle electronic backdrops and
innovative production techniques all adds up to a record that is heartfelt, timeless,
yet pleasingly contemporary in feel.
