Across almost 30 years, Orton’s sound has shapeshifted from her output with The Chemical Brothers, Andrew Weatherall and William Orbit, to a pioneer of an electronic, woozy brand of trip-hop. Over the course of seven albums, Orton has resolutely refuted categorisation, weaving from a hushed, folk-informed storytelling to dark, brooding esoteric experimentalism.

‘The eighth album from the English songwriter is the best work of her career. Soothing, immersive, and self-produced, it conjures a dreamlike atmosphere with songs that spiral out into the ether.’ – Best New Music, Pitchfork

‘This is as moving and real as Orton has ever been … Nestles somewhere between Talk Talk’s final years and Bill Fay’s late beauties, between Alice Coltrane’s intimate hymns and Fiona Apple’s softest moments... the musical richness only mirrors Orton’s astounding writing’ – ???? MOJO

‘Orton’s best record in more than 20 years’ – ???? Classic Pop

‘Orton’s hits, such as She Cries Your Name, Central Reservation abide in her set list… Weather Alive is an enormously exciting record’ – ???? The Guardian
