Nerissa Shwarz - Playgrounds Lost album review
Spooky instrumental fairy tales
After an album under the name Coronal Rain, Nerissa Schwarz joined German prog band Frequency Drift five years ago, her harp arrangements becoming one of their trademarks. She’s now produced her first solo album proper. Performed on electric harp and Mellotron, it’s an instrumental, Proustian reverie on the fragility of childhood, which shifts subtly from gentle pastoral nuance to busier, impressionistic noise.
