Immersive, ethereal and haunting; three words that perfectly summarise the captivating sounds of Austel, aka. Devon-born artist Annie Rew Shaw. Following collaborations with the likes of Mundo Fox, Lyla Foy and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, the London-based artist combines a classic songwriting sensibility and a from-the-heart ethos with a strong sense of individuality.

Whereas her stunning debut single ‘Crows’ introduced Austel’s sound, ‘Lost At Home’ perfects it, bringing the same rich harmonies and beautifully minimalist percussion that combines so beautifully. The new single builds on this ethos, crafting these meandering melodies into a track that sounds truly expansive; You can almost physically imagine getting lost wandering the misty hills of synth and rivers of flowing electronica. It’s in this track, too, that Austel’s vocal really comes to the forefront, ebbing and flowing seamlessly over the haunting soundscape, rising from introverted lows to lofty highs.

Sit back, close your eyes, and fall into Austel’s dream world.
