Idyllic slo-mo ambience from this enchanting post-classical trio of
multi-instrumentalists signed to DIY outfit Häpna Records. Breathe deep their rural drift and intricate microcosmic electro-shift.
Songs that seem classic the moment you hear them float over you. Full of liquid, quivering vocal lines long the like of Jeff Buckley and Devendra Banhart - that good. Brosseau's playing elicits a hushed reverence from admiring listeners. Ssh wow...
Beautifully eerie bittersweet folk music. She has occupied a unique position in the history of British music, first as one half of famous pop-duo Strawberry Switchblade and later as a regular member of Current 93, Coil, and Death in June.
