For a singer-songwriter, the benefit of starting from a point of quiet is the room it allows for manoeuvre afterwards. Such is the case with the
subtly cinematic second album from Sandra Sumie Nagano, Lost in Light, due for release via Bella Union on 10th November. On 2013’s
eponymous debut, Sumie tapped into the mid-point between Scandinavian and Japanese folk music to deliver an album of blissful restraint, its
quietude shaped by a combination of parenthood and natural inclination.
