“The Basque singer-songwriter conjures an inviting, Nyro-esque dreamworld”
– Uncut

 Ahead of the release of her album Another Kind Of Revolution on 15 February, Elena Setién has shared new single “She Was So Fair.” Through a gentle haze of wispy, swirling melodies, Setién’s distinguished voice tells a tale of a beautiful woman falling into the sea, reaching the bottom, and transforming to stay there, irradiating. As Setién puts it, the song says “we should not forget our inner, human qualities no matter what layer of society we happen to be at.”

On Another Kind Of Revolution, Setién’s declarative gestures both musically and lyrically breathe life into her expressive allegories. The multi-instrumentalist’s careful arrangements are direct and affecting and give her room for forays into experimentation. While her recordings are decidedly pop, her considerable experience as an improviser imbues Setién’s songs with an elegant sense of ease and detail.

Elena Setién will be touring throughout Europe this winter and spring in support of Another Kind Of Revolution, including a set at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival.
