Boxharp are a UK electronic duo, singer Wendy Allen and producer Scott Solter. Solter has worked with Mike Patton, Superchunk, and St. Vincent. Allen’s lilting, ethereal vocals make you believe she’s a fairy, elf, or some other supernatural creature. Loam Arcane is a 4-song EP, with a discordant electro-folk-pop first half and a spaced-out, abstract 2nd half that BLISS-centric DJs will dig. These songs would make a great contribution to the soundtrack for a future Lord of The Rings or Avatar installment - take that for what it’s worth.

3.** 3:27 haunting, string- and synth-based melody with light scuffing percussion in the background. vocals are beautiful.
4.** 5:43 instrumental. most blissful track on the EP. long, pleasant string and synth chords with light, interesting percussion - scraping and water drops. aims to be epic, good soundtrack for trekking across vast stretches of grassland or forest. warning- last 0:30 is almost silent.
