20 June 2023 - Heavenly - Touching Everything

I stumbled across this album by Heavenly, called Tragic Tiger's Sad Meltdown, which is really just a few songs and a lot of sonic experimentation.  This song itself is part of an 11 minute long track that includes a recording of the ocean, which is absolutely amazing.  I've supported Heavenly on Bandcamp, and you can as well

The whole album, including this song, is luscious and minimalish ambient folk music with a hint of spoken word.  

But who is Heavenly?

Looking at the credits on the track (courtesy of Spotify) gives us some clues.

Heavenly is Heavenly Hirani Tiger Lily Hutchence-Geldof, the daughter of the late Michael Hutchence of WGP Hall of Fame inductee INXS and British television personality Paula Yates.  Her father passed away when she was 1, and her mother when she was 4. At that time, the father of Paula Yates's three elder children, Bob Geldof, took foster and eventually adoptive custody of Heavenly - hence the hyphenate.  

Given the deaths of her parents (as well as her half sister Peaches), that makes that album title hit a little harder (I presume she's the titular tragic Tiger).  

Anyway, she's made some beautiful music and we hope to hear more.
