AZURE RAY / SOKO / BRAD ARMSTRONG
Azure Ray returns to BottleTree in support of their new album, "As Above So Below"
When they were setting out to write their new six-song recording, As Above So Below, Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor of Azure Ray were intent to depart from their original sound; that lushly haunted, dreamy folk pop that was born twelve years ago with their self-titled debut. “We wanted to go for something completely different,” says Fink. The raven-haired duo, who met and began playing music together at fifteen years old in Birmingham, revived the band in 2010 after a seven-year hiatus to release the full-length Drawing Down the Moon. “For Drawing Down, we focused on revisiting the very first Azure Ray record. That approach facilitated Orenda and I bringing our sound together stylistically and emotionally after working so many years apart,” explains Taylor. “For As Above So Below, we wanted it to be more like Azure Ray in an alternate universe.”
