Eva Van Deuren has been wayfaring as Orphan Fairytale for the past 15 years and counting. With her electronic psychedelia that deftly teeters between the bubbly and the eerie, Van Deuren is a prolific presence in our spheres and her music is a constant which irrefutably touches and enchants all those who encounter it. Over the past few years she has integrated the Celtic harp into her repertoire, crafting new sounds that seamlessly meld into the narrative of her unique sonic trajectory.
Tune In Tree Ears, Orphan Fairytale’s first LP on KRAAK, presents these harp pieces that were first heard in the context of open air concerts in the summer, where the delicate melodies could float into the trees above and soar beyond to spaces unhindered. The ancestral character of the instrument adds new depths to an already complex musical universe that has always embraced tragedy and fantasy in equal measures. A bridge between the electronic elements that always defined her sound and a new direction born from a deep connection with earthly elements, Tune In Tree Ears brims with a wistfulness that uncovers new directions in Orphan Fairytale’s ever-unfolding dream world, allowing it to flourish through the natural extension of paths already paved. Released in tandem with Titania Moon, Orphan Fairytale’s latest hippietronic venture on Ultra Eczema!
