about

Nest is the collaborative project of Otto Totland (one half of Deaf Center / Type Records) and label owner Huw Roberts. The two started working together after forging a strong friendship as former members of the Miasmah label.

Retold is an apt title for this body of work, at times light and serene, other times dark, brooding and sinister - Nest are expert storytellers.

Taking cues from film soundtracks and contemporary classical music, the story is woven using a myriad of instrumentation. Dulcet piano tones are backed by string and horn arrangements, unidentifiable plucked instruments and the sound of the Welsh harp; often heavily processed, Retold is an album that has as much in common with experimental electronic music as it does with the modern classical approach.

From the time Nest began writing together, one purpose was clear; to produce beautiful music free of pretense, and they do it exceptionally well.
