Former Cocteau Twins vocalistElizabeth Fraserhas unveiled her first new music in 13 years. The new track,Golden Air, comes via theSun’s Signatureproject with partnerDamon Reece. The pair’s self-titled five-song EP arrives on 18 June viaPartisan Recordswith a digital release to follow in July.
The first germs of the ideas date back as far asCocteau Twins’ split in 1997 and embryonic versions of the songs were first debuted at theANOHNI-curatedMeltdown Festivalback in 2012.Elizabeth Fraser, who at that point had not performed live for several years admitted she was “Shitting kittens at the prospect of making an audience [of close to 6,000 people] sit through 10 songs they had never heard before.”
“Detail – very high on detail,” is the wayDamon Reecedescribes the process behind theSun’s Signatureproject development. He citesBernard HerrmannandJohn Barry’s soundtrack work as part inspiration behind “the constant re-editing and re-recording of component parts” deployed to advance the material.
