Emiliana Torrini – Fisherman’s Woman

Emiliana Torrini - Fisherman's Woman
Emiliana Torrini is of Italian and Icelandic origin. Her first album Love in the Time of Science 2000 was produced by Roland Orzabal of Tears for Fears and sounded very electronic and Björk-ish. Her second release Fisherman’s Woman (2005) is mainly acoustic. It sounds very warm and intimate; it makes you imagine Emiliana being a butterfly or a beautifully fragile fairy. Most of the songs are based on acoustic guitar here and there accompanied by piano and minimal percussion. It is mainly Emiliana Torrini’s childish voice that is the biggest drawing point of the album.

Fisherman’s Woman is absolutely beautiful in its honesty and simplicity. It makes you think of the best work of Nick Drake or similar. Just close your eyes and listen. Let Emilliana take you to her beautiful innocent dreamy world.

My favourite tracks> Honeymoon Child, Thinking Out Loud, Heartstopper…

  1. Rene lent me this to have a listen to and it is a really good album. Her voice can be a little grating in some of the songs but this is more than compensated for by the enchanting lyrics and beautifully recorded piano.

    Definitely something to listen to relaxing on a sunny Sunday afternoon!
