French poet, composer and ASMR artist Félicia Atkinson’s latest album, ‘The Flower And The Vessel’, was recorded largely in hotel rooms while she was both on tour and pregnant.

“It’s a record not about being pregnant but a record made with pregnancy”, she explains. It’s also influenced by the strangeness of being on tour. That thing where, each day, you find yourself in a different place that isn’t home, asking “What am I doing here? How can I connect myself to the world?” The answer, she discovered, was “with small gestures: recording my voice, recording birds, a simple melody”.

The resulting ambient album is made up of tracks comprising “structure combined with everyday noises, selecting them to make a sparse music bouquet”.

Following previously released tracks ‘Shirley To Shirley’ and ‘Moderato Cantabile’, she has now put out new single ‘You Have To Have Eyes’. Listen to that here:
