The gifted pianist follows up a lustrous debut with this pivotal record on which she introduces her own crystalline vocals and subtle synth textures, adding further depth to her neoclassical exhibitions.

Her debut album 'Esja', a beguiling collection of solo piano pieces was released to international acclaim, just a year prior to this record. If the compositions on Esja were born out of a fascination with the piano as an instrument, then her follow-up, the expansive, cinematic, 'Home', finds Rani expanding her palate: adding vocals and subtle electronics to her music.

Fans of hauschka, lubomyr melnyk and poppy ackroyd will love the intricate piano playing and - With the welcome addition of hania's gossamer vocals - this album is a must for fans of agnes obel.
