Evening there fellow denizens of the night…
Time for some music. Tonight i give you “Bleed like there was no other Flood” by Wildbirds and Peacedrums from their new Retina EP. They´re a Swedish duo who make dark minimalist music centred on drums, percussion and strong striking vocals.
They´ve been to Iceland before, working with the likes of Ben Frost. For Retina and their following EPs, they’re collaborating with the dozen-strong Schola Cantorum Reykjavík Chamber Choir, with arrangements by Icelandic composer Hildur Guðnadóttir.
The end result is powerful despite the fact that it´s only vocals and percussion. Listen if you are a fan of the likes of Fever Ray and Björk.
