2022 sees Austel somewhat reborn with the release of her new album ‘Feathers’ – a reimagining of her discography to date, in which the songs of ‘Unfold’ and ‘Cold Love’ are transformed into intimate, ethereal piano versions. Front and centre is Austel’s vocal: unguarded but still possessing a dynamic power and depth. The songs are laced with her signature ghostly backing vocals drenched in reverb, contributing to the ‘haunting’ nature of her work.
