Florida-based indie folk singer-songwriter Vesper Wood, the solo project of Christina Wood, announces her solo debut album Instar slated for release on March 1st. In anticipation, she also shares new single “Descend”
One half of the UK electro-pop duo Kaleida, Instar is Wood’s first endeavor as a solo artist and was fueled and inspired by her own profound experiences with her reproductive health. Wood’s elegiac voice was first heard by millions when Kaleida’s sublime song “Think” was featured as the highlight soundtrack to John Wick. Other Kaleida tracks found similar fame on films/shows such as Atomic Blonde and CSI before their breathtaking album Tear The Roots was released to critical acclaim in 2017. As part of Kaleida, Wood has amassed over 45 million streams to date across platforms and has toured the world with the likes of Roisin Murphy and Alt-J.
Recorded in Bristol, UK with producer Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, Aldous Harding, Soccer Mommy, Jenny Hval), Instar features a gossamer touch that makes Vesper Wood’s organic and atmospheric sound all the more arresting.
