‘Sule Skerry’ is the second album in a triptych shaped by Erland Cooper’s homeland, Orkney, and in particular by the air, sea and land, as it was celebrated by Orcadian poet George Mackay Brown. Last year’s solo debut album, ‘Solan Goose’ (an album of the year at BBC 6 Music, The Quietus, Music OHM and more) paid homage to the birdlife of Orkney portraying the air, and on ‘Sule Skerry’, the multi-instrumentalist develops this further, turning his attention to the North Sea.
