Have you heard about Kin Fables? No? Please allow yourself to be introduced through this interview I did back in 2013 with the creators. CLANN brings together all the music from the beautiful and expansive world magicked up by the McKinnon brothers. There’s also a more up to date interview here from Beautiful Bizarre.
The album you’re about to encounter is an utterly gorgeous collection of songs that are perfect to ease you into the evening hours.
With the release of “Seelie”, CLANN welcomes us back to the world of KIN Fables – a grand scale multimedia project captained by director/producer Seb McKinnon, encompassing original music and stunning short films. This is a visual/musical project, one as as melancholic as it is epic, as haunting as it is beautiful, with plans to culminate into a feature film (currently in late stages of development). The word clann comes from Old Irish, meaning family – indeed, the family of collaborators responsible for this odyssey returns with the signature ethereal vocals of Charlotte Oleena, as though singing words from an unknown or long forgotten language, and heart-wringing string performances by violinist Chloe Picard. With Seelie, they have refined their sound, while not losing touch with their cinematic arrangements, airy vocals, and trip hop/downtempo beats.
