Fassine’s third album Forge, and first on Trapped Animal Records, is a tribute to the unassuming heroes on the fringes of society. People like Hannah Hauxwell. A Yorkshire farmer who led a challenging and isolated existence, caring for elderly relatives whilst running her farm in the most extreme conditions. She became an overnight celebrity after appearing in an ITV documentary, her virtues of hard work without any complaints, without any expectations of praise or credit, were something an entire nation identified with. Hauxwell is the subject of album track Perfectly Planned, whilst Hellsto looks on admiringly at the working women of WW1 and WW2, who often go nameless, under the radar. On Forge they’re bolder than ever before, the instrumentation heavier and more aggressive than on previous full lengths Gourami (2017) and Dialectik (2016).
