Whilst being filled with Hewitt's trademark styling and aesthetic, Peng Variations finds a new balance between song-writing and electronic composition; a synthesis of the first two parts in her 2017 trilogy. The series effectively chronicles Hewitt's move from York to Lewes to Leeds to Penge. Amongst the myriad of found sounds to be heard in this record, cuts from a single event ? a play written by four women and their one performance of it in the Yorkshire dales ? appear numerous times, both influencing and illustrating the album's theme. So finally, the third part became loosely based around growing up, taking on responsibilities, and learning to accept a lack of control.
Thanks to HMUK's Emerging Artist Fund, Hewitt has found herself doing a Pledge Campaign to release a compilation of tracks from the trilogy on vinyl, and to put on an event to bring the trilogy to a conclusion. If she is successful in reaching the target in the given time frame she will be awarded funding which can then be invested in new material and releases. To support the project, visit the site here.
A CD box set containing the entire trilogy will also become available for pre-order on the pledge campaign, which is being released in partnership with Micro Spiral records.
