The Blackheart Orchestra are Manchester based multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington who take a wide range of influences from artists such as Sigur Ros, Bat For Lashes and Bjork. Together they combine contemporary rock with electronica, atmospherics, and classical styling to create a unique brand of ethereal art-rock that is laden with pop hooks and poetry, raw emotions and philosophy. In light of their previous album the band were recognised throughout the scene; They won Best British Duo, were voted #4 Best New Band in the UK, Chrissy was recently voted #5 Best Female Vocalist in PROG Magazine's Readers' Poll, and their lockdown online concert series The Big Armchair Concerts was voted #10 in Most Important Rock Events of 2020. Following a recent, successful 17-date UK tour, the band announce details of their new album. € Hotel Utopia € finds them at their most mesmerising, haunting best. Never afraid to take on the most daunting subjects, the band take a musical look at the afterlife. The 13 songs discuss the one mystery that has troubled every human animal that ever lived. What happens after life? It's a record that doesn't attempt to answer that question but provokes the listener's thoughts while holding their hand along a musical journey that meditates on our fears and fantasies of € heaven' stopping off en route at murder, suicide, the end of the world and reincarnation as we all approach the unknown mystery of our own personal Hotel Utopia. The Blackheart Orchestra's most mesmerising and ambitious album to date.
