hree years after Life After Youth, Canadian singer-songwriter and musician Elizabeth Powell returns with her project Land of Talk. Indistinct Conversations is the new album which will be out on July 31st via Saddle Creek. Powell produced and arranged the tracks together with her bandmates Mark “Bucky” Wheaton (drums/keys) and Christopher McCarron (bass), and the trio recorded the album in a studio built by McCarron in Wheaton’s apartment basement.
We already shared “Weight of That Weekend” and “Compelled”; “Diaphanous” is a new excerpt. “After recording and sharing the initial demos, hearing what Bucky had manifested from essentially just my humming and strumming at once both floored me and swept me off my feet,” explains Powell of “Diaphanous.” “What begins as an airy groove swells into a sweeping anthem for going easy on oneself. And, the importance of levity.” About the video, director Lara Kramer adds, “It has been an exciting and meaningful experience collaborating with Lizzie Powell, a strong voice, on the video for ‘Diaphanous.’ Approaching the visual treatment of ‘Diaphanous,’ I led with my sensing the song’s underbelly, the guts. Without pushing the telling of a narrative. Finding self determination in what we chose to reveal and disclose, what we make transparent.”
