Sailing Stones is the musical moniker of singer songwriter Jenny Lindfors. Jenny is half Irish/half Swedish and is now based in Bristol, UK.
Following previous singles The Blazing Sun and Telescopes, she released her debut EP, She’s A Rose, on February 9 and ends her current tour with a date at Bristol’s Grain Barge on March 25.
With a name taken from the sailing stones of Death Valley in California (rocks that move across landmasses at a snails pace, seemingly of their own accord), and a meticulous attention to detail, the music of Sailing Stones is both elegiac and mesmerizing.
As well as classic soundtrack influences from the likes of Blade Runner and Paris, Texas and heroes such as Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac, there’s also some deft synth work, intricate vocal layers and glacial tones that aren’t a million miles away from the work of more modern artists such as Weyes Blood, The War On Drugs and Elbow.
With airplay from radio titans such as Gideon Coe and Tom Robinson on 6Music, support across the blogosphere, and regular touring across the UK, it seems things are ever on the up for one of the UK’s most exciting new musical talents.
