Encasing the fragile vocals and musical purity of artists like Kate Bush and Laura Nyro, Rie Fu has released visuals for ‘Mirror’ that reflect the track’s heartwarming effect, creating a truly enchanting listen.
The fusion of acoustic arrangements and digital production underlines Rie Fu’s focus on how music reflects our surroundings. Transitioning from the electronica music she produced in her bustling home in Tokyo, to her focus on acoustic sounds in her new home in the backwaters of Guildford, Surrey, Rie Fu exhibits flawlessly the importance of surroundings in music – just like any art.
Her abiding link between music and location stands now as a tribute to the peaceful English countryside with the blend of delicate piano, acoustic guitar, cello and subtle electric touches that embody the pastoral settings of Surrey in musical form.
Due to be released later this month, Rie Fu’s forthcoming album ‘Places’ will feature already released Mirror and Ripples and promises tracks that continue her theme of urban and suburban contrast whilst maintaining her innovative folk fusion.
