a place of the delightfully strange
Girl Swallows Nightingale's debut album, Shapeshifter, breathes life into a world of ghostly tales and memory fireflies. Imbued with gauzy soundscapes, technical arrangements, and a rich narrative nestled in the realm of fantasy and science fiction, each track conjures a cinematic experience. In 2020, Shapeshifter was released in conjunction with a set of editorial photos, each work a window into the album's universe and the mythic characters who roam there.
GSN's second album Chrysanthemum is scheduled for release in summer 2023, co-produced by Marica Petrey and Mogli Maureal.
