Motherhood changes a person, so it must also hold true that motherhood affects anything a person creates, and it did for LENKA, a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and singer who splits her time between Australia and New York. She found herself reflecting on life in a new way when it came time to create her third album, Shadows, a quietly hushed collection of emotionally-charged lullabies. After the release of her second album, Two, in 2011, Lenka began penning new music, gathering songs from a variety of sessions throughout her pregnancy and first few months as a mother.
Shadows is a beautiful, captivating collection of peaceful, introspective numbers that are both calming and thoughtful. The songs are both deeply personal and highly relatable - even for those who haven't experienced the affecting moment of new parenthood.
