Nana (Manuel de Falla)

Nana (Manuel de Falla)

Nana is a lullaby from Manuel de Falla's 1914 collection Seven Spanish Folksongs (Siete canciones populares españolas). Joanna's arrangement, which also appears on our Weather To Fly album, brings a hypnotic trip-hop mood to the song.

Every sound you hear is made by our seven voices, including Jon's percussion loops. And enjoy the gorgeous solo from our newest Swingle, Imogen!

15 Step

15 Step

Our new video comes courtesy of one of our favourite British exports: Radiohead. The eerie beauty and complexity of their music makes it a challenge to arrange and a thrill to sing. This song appeared on Radiohead’s 2007 album In Rainbows — though you may also know it from the first Twilight film!

For our a cappella version of 15 Step we use live looping to build up a densely layered arrangement, taking inspiration from playground clapping songs, breakbeat and big band jazz along the way.
