Jim Wallis

Europa (Tip Top Recordings)

Jim Wallis is the drummer with critically lauded bands Modern Nature and Still Corner, but with this – his debut solo album – he has shown that he’s no slouch when it comes to ambient and post-classical sounds. It’s a release that accompanies a forthcoming independent film that documents the true story of an asylum seeker who takes his own life. It includes an instrumental suite of songs, featuring cello, violin, synths and more, which are haunting, moving and imbued with an incredible power.
