About this item

The Magnetic North is made up of Erland Cooper, Hannah Peel and Simon Tong.

‘Orkney: Symphony Of The Magnetic North’ was inspired by a dream of Erland’s, in which he was visited by Betty Corrigall, an Orcadian girl who in the 1770s committed suicide having been outcast from her village for falling pregnant out of wedlock. The resulting long player, recorded in various locations across the Orkney Islands, is a collection of beautiful, evocative songs, at times reminiscent of Nancy & Lee, at others King Creosote & Jon Hopkins.
