It would be far too facile to readily dispel Snowbird – a collaborative endeavour conjoining onetime Cocteau Twin and current Bella Union honcho Simon Raymonde, and Wisconsin songstress Stephanie Dosen – as some form of narcissistic vanity project. Forthcoming début full-length moon is anticipated a little later on this month via Raymonde’s very own label, after all. But if Porcelain served as a frangible, beautiful introduction to a record that’s been a little bit in the making, then the commensurately swoonsome All Wishes Are Ghosts ought to intensify the anticipation tenfold. For once more brumal, it makes for a sweeping, so too majestic few moments that, like London snow, turn to nothingness only too soon. Thank fuck that record is to arise shortly, therefore.
moon is expected January 27th on Bella Union.
