the debut album by hejira, produced by matthew herbert is out now on accidental records.

The debut album from London four piece Hejira is out now and available on CD, double 12” vinyl and digital formats. The Matthew Herbert produced album ‘Prayer Before Birth’ plays out like an ensemble-piece, a debut of rare composure that possesses a questing musical sensibility. There is a delicate orchestration to their playing and arrangements that has more in common with symphonic classical music than rock. Full of gentle surprises, the whole project feels unhindered by compromise or a desire to please, making for a magnetic and engaging listen.
