Skylarks are known for their unusually varied and beautiful song. Alaudidae, taking her stage name from this bird family, is a similar remarkable musical project: Lærke Corfix is set to steal your heart with her exquisite writing, fueled by her electrifying guitar playing and a singular voice that has granted her rave reviews from magazines such as La Quitiden and Gaffa and has attracted the interest of international names such as Shilpa Ray, Jacob Whitesides and Aske Jacoby.

The Nordic skylark Alaudidae is known as an entrancing performer and songwriter. Her music and the stories embedded in the lyrics are haunting, but serene. Alaudidae can unleash a wave of raw vocal force and emotion, that takes you back to the roots of the very universe, as she casts light on existential subjects that we all recognize in our human life as we walk the earth. Alaudidae music has a certain elven quality to it, the kind that will lure you deep into the forest. As she crawls into the mind of a killer or takes you to the edge of the sandy desert, Alaudidae has got that rare ability to eliminate the space between the stage and the audience. She weaves a seamless tapestry of voices and unfolds her wide vocal range in an commited, honest and heartfelt perfomance

Alaudidae’s approach to songwriting is frequently compared to the likes of Pj Harvey, Adele, Alanis Morisette and Feist.

WHITEWATER ALBUM:
For reviews on Whitewater album, follow the links on the right side:
Melodies and lyrics developed in the settings of a small dusty studio flat located in a picturesque Parisian alleyway. The material was tested on different copplestoned backyard alleys and sidewalk cafés, and appraised by world citizens in transit.
The lyrics convey an array of sincere moments and propagate into a rough unpolished sound, with brushes of authenticity, which form the foundation for fervent and universal themes with eternal verities. 

“Whitewater” was recorded in TAPF Studio in January 2013 and thereafter mixed and mastered in Black Tornado Studios CPH, late in the summer of 2013.

Lærker er kendt for deres usædvanlige varierede skønsang. Alaudidae, der har taget hendes kunstnernavn fra denne fuglefamilie, er til sammenligning et bemærkelsesværdig musikalsk projekt: Lærke Corfix stjæler dit hjerte med sine udsøgte tekster, næret af hendes elektrificerende guitarspil og enestående stemme, der har indbragt hende begejstrede anmeldelser fra store magasiner som La Quitiden og Gaffa og har tiltrukket sig interesse fra internationale navne som Shilpa Ray, Jacob Whitesides og Aske Jacoby.

Den nordiske sanglærke Alaudidae er kendt som en fortryllende performer og sangskriver. Hendes musik og historierne indlejret i teksterne er uforglemmelige. Alaudidae kan udløse en bølge af rå vokal kraft og eksplosive følelser. Hun tager dig med på en smuk og brutal rejse til universets kant når hun kaster lys over eksistentielle emner, som vi alle genkender fra vores liv, som mennesker på jorden. Alaudidaes musik har en vis elver kvalitet til sig, den slags, der vil lokke dig dybt ind i skoven, når du mindst venter det. Som når hun kravler ind i hovedet på en morder eller tager dig til kanten af den sandede ørken, har Alaudidae den sjældne evne til at fortrænge rummet mellem scene og publikum. Hun væver et gennemsigtigt tapet af melodier og udfolder sin brede vokale formåen på engageret vis, i en ærlig og dybtfølt optræden.

Alaudidaes næste udspil udkommer i Marts 2016

Whitewater:

Melodier og tekster udviklede sig i en lille lejlighed i en parisisk baggård. Teksterne formidler en række ærlige øjeblikke og forplanter sig i en stærk og upoleret lyd.
Lyden er rå og autentisk og understøtter de inderlige og universelle, eviggyldige emner.

Whitewater er produceret med musikalsk støtte og opbakning af Paw Eriksen (Bite the bullet, tidl. Highway child)
Whitewater blev indspillet i TAPF i januar og efterfølgende mixet og mastereret I Black Tornado i sensommeren 2013.
