J Edna Mae's second EP release - 'White noise' - is another collection of 5 beautifully crafted, piano led, ethereal songs. Recorded at Sonic One Studios in South Wales, this acclaimed EP is gorgeously produced and has touches of world instrumentation such as inclusion of the Thai Khim and Balinese Gamelan. It contains layers of lush vocal harmonies, and wonderful combinations of instrumental textures, such as merging orchestral timpani drums and plucked strings with electric guitar and mandolin. These songs are described as having a fresh and original sound, reminiscent of Sara Bareilles, Regina Spektor and Kate Bush with the musical sensitivity of Enya.
