Seen the various track titles, it’s no surprise that Gayle Brogan is an avid bird-watcher. And this album definitely sounds like a flock full of activity.

The opening track is vintage Pefkin: a slow built up piece based on delayed guitars, hushed vocals and a bunch of effects, but throughout the album more sides of her sonic spectrum. Eg Jackdaws, based on a poem by Charlie Gracie, relies heavily on synth sounds, and the album closer Starlings is an atypical pianobased song.

Murmurations sounds like a culmination of Pefkin’s sound, ánd pretty much everything morc stands for: you’ll recognize the bare-boned folk-influences used by eg Annelies Monseré or The Iditarod, the gritty experiments of ao Drekka and Circle bros, the drones of Karina ESP, the touch of poetry used by Edgar Wappenhalter or the sonic palette of Lichens and Jessica Bailiff: Pefkin covers ánd masters it all.
