Austel creates new music from the spaces in between: between the city and places long left behind; between the solitary and the social - conjuring haunting soundscapes full of rich harmonies to produce an immersive, ethereal experience. Migrating to London just days after turning 19, Austel - aka Devon-born artist Annie Rew Shaw - quickly established herself in its music scene; working on multiple collaborations (Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Lyla Foy, Munro Fox, Stella Martyr, Marie Naffah), including 3 UK tours and appearances at Glastonbury festival. This rugged 'on-the-road' experience combined with a classically-trained background have shaped Austel's unique musical character and voice. This year, Austel will release her debut EP 'Unfold' - co-written and produced with music technologist Adam Stark (MI.MU gloves, Rumour Cubes). 'Unfold' explores a dreamy sonic landscape, drawing upon influences from artists such as Daughter, James Blake and Nils Frahm.
