“Bell Toll” C Duncan

With his new album Alluvium due out May 6th via Bella Union, Glasgow born C Duncan has shared another taste off the full-length, “Bell Toll.” Commenting on the track Duncan says: “Bell Toll is about uncertainty and companionship and finding comfort in uncertainty. It explores the idea of security and assurance juxtaposed with the exhilaration of not knowing what’s to come.”

The track, which brings to mind a meeting between Michel Legrand and early Kate Bush, is accompanied by a hypnotic lyric video that Duncan created himself. C Duncan has previously shared the tracks Heaven, Alluvium and The Wedding Song from the album and recently announced news of a Spring UK tour – dates + info below:

“We’re at the end,” sings C Duncan, playfully, as his new album opens. Don’t be fooled: endings are the spur for new beginnings on the fourth album from the classically trained multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. After the haunting raptures of Architect (2015), the Twilight Zone-inspired reveries of The Midnight Sun (2016) and the richly melodic Health (2019), Alluvium is a sublime palate-refresher for Duncan (C for Christopher), brimming with revitalised fluency: a warming dispatch from the daylight zone, if you like.

With personal stories as fertile soil for its multi-stranded growths, Alluvium navigates its many tones and styles with lightness and grace. As Duncan explains: “With Alluvium I wanted to make a positive record with lots of different musical ideas and lyrics that could move from serious to playful to over-the-top romantic in a fluid way.”
