Main Artist

Richard Dawson


Geordie folk singer and razor-sharp chronicler of modern Britain Richard Dawson and Finnish experimental rock veterans Circle might seem an odd match on paper, but Henki, largely recorded in Pori, on Finland’s west coast before the pandemic, defies expectations. Loosely based around botanists and plants (unless Ed Sheeran goes off-piste in the next five weeks, Silene is likely to be the standout song of 2021 written from the perspective of a 32,000-year-old seed), the seven songs here have been intricately crafted, with imaginative, constantly evolving arrangements highlighting Circle’s prog credentials.
