'Burn' Released with Atlantic Curve
“The operatic tics of Gerrard’s voice merge with Maxwell’s anthemic, cinematic music spectacularly…The euphoric, sometimes ambient Burn sounds like an enigmatic requiem” – MOJO Magazine
On 7th May 2021, Lisa Gerrard and Jules Maxwell release their album ‘Burn’, with Atlantic Curve, a London-based label created under the Schubert Music Europe umbrella. This collective effort was produced by James Chapman of Maps.
“Burn approaches us with an air of mystery, offering up tunes that are a chimera of exotic influences. Ambient electronica, folk music from around the world with a special emphasis on Middle Eastern sound, gothic operatics and joyously overwhelming orchestral moments are morphed and woven into each other to create the richly textured fabric of this album. A deep and almost spiritual aesthetic guides this album as they start to work notions of trance music into these tunes.
The duo use a multitude of cultural references as a starting point but seemingly synthesise these influences into something that sounds strangely new and somewhat alien. Burn creates a reflective space into which listeners can immerse themselves and mediate on the dreamiest of sounds.
Gerrard’s voice is as powerful and seductively ethereal as it ever was. In uncertain times this is reassuring for old school Dead Can Dance fans. Burn is as essential as anything else in Gerrard’s unique songbook.” – TheMusic.Com
The album is available to buy and stream across all digital platforms, CD & White 180g Vinyl. Discover now >>

Lisa Gerrard and James Orr Compose the Original Music for Channel 7 Series 'Secret Bridesmaids' Business'
Lisa Gerrard and James Orr composed the original score for 6-part romantic thriller ‘Secret Bridesmaids’ Business’. The first episode premiered on 29th September.
“Amid the vines of a picturesque family winery, a playful and dreamy wedding proposal from devoted Alex wins over his down-to-earth bride, Olivia. Would- be bridesmaids Saskia and Melanie, who couldn’t be more different, are at Olivia’s side. It should be the happiest of days. But each of these best friends hides a life-changing secret, several of which are about to explode.
The proposal is a wake-up call for married-with-kids Melanie and she ends her affair with a charismatic stranger, Jakob. When he continues to pursue her, fearful Melanie lashes out, and her fighting back triggers an escalation in Jakob’s behaviour. As his monstrous true nature is slowly revealed, Jakob begins to target those closest to Melanie: her husband Michael, her kids, and Olivia. Meanwhile, Olivia buries the real reason for her reticence to marry Alex in wedding preparations – until she discovers that Alex has been unfaithful. Olivia calls off the engagement, and throws herself into helping protect Melanie from Jakob, defiantly putting herself in the firing line.
Saskia harbours a secret that threatens to derail her legal career. When fellow lawyer Alex begins to investigate, Saskia goes to extraordinary lengths to keep the truth from being revealed. The men of the series have secrets too. Alex, the groom, is concealing the truth of his past, while knockabout Michael, Melanie’s husband, harbours a simmering resentment.
As the series reaches its climax, the men reveal they are capable of more than we thought.
Whose blood is on the wedding dress we saw in the series opener? Who will make it out alive, and who will pay the ultimate price?”
The series stars Abbie Cornish, Katie McGrath, and Georgina Haig.
