Marlinchen in the Snow: A Haunting Tale

In February 2023, the sisters embarked on a creative journey to rural Nova Scotia, where they collaborated with acclaimed Canadian producer Daniel Ledwell (known for his work with artists like Jenn Grant and Oh Pep!). Inspired by the frozen beauty of the landscape and their transient life on the road, Charm of Finches crafted their fourth studio album, “Marlinchen in the Snow.”

The album draws influence from the haunting Grimm’s fairy tale, «The Juniper Tree». Mabel shares that the tale resonated deeply with them, stating, «It’s a haunting tale of how Marlinchen discovers the death of her stepbrother at the hands of her mother. This found its way into one of our songs. There’s lots of symbolism in the story, but really, it’s about female strength and intuition – overcoming obstacles led by your inner voice – a theme throughout the album».
