about

The Human Project is a multi-faceted audio visual album by STANLÆY. Recorded by Bethany Stenning, mixed by VVilhelm and Bethany Stenning, Mastered by Oliver Baldwin.

"By anybody’s standard, this is a huge achievement, but for someone as young as Stanlaey – she’s in her early twenties – it’s massive and hopefully a sign of what to expect in the future." - Dancing about Architecture

"Bethany starts from a perspective of “ethereal gypsy punk-pop” and moves outwards from there into the kind of neverland/neverwas experimental folk music that we used to hear from Joanna Newsom; with her fey, unusual, offbeat-beautiful voice and lyrics" - Misfitcity

"It’s a deeply rich and rewarding project, sonically drawing on jazz, folk, electronics, and classical music to weave a tapestry of sound." - Pink Wafer

------------------------------------------------------------

The lyrical narratives of STANLÆY explore surrealist takes on how human life in the modern world is juxtaposed with our ancient relationships to nature. These ideas, alongside contemplations about consciousness and free will, are set to a series of hallucinatory, twilight soundworlds with virtuoso post classical arrangements, haunting folk melodies and a deft palette of subtle and ever evolving textures. Fairy tale chamber pop for the 21st Century.
