Angeline mostly makes music in the genres of wyrd folk and psych folk, her work infused with elements of soul music, literature, ‘60s beat pop sounds, folklore, myth and the supernatural. With a feral approach, a handmade sonic aesthetic and a belief in the importance of tenderness, Angeline’s original compositions and re-stitchings of traditional songs focus on storytelling and the small things that often go unnoticed.
Following the October 2022 release of The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience on Topic Records, Angeline made her television debut on Later…with Jools Holland in, and there was a major Guardian interview. The album uses history and imagination to tell stories of UK Black ancestors in the sonic style of UK traditional and folk music.
