marries dark imagery with harmonious pop forms, softly-whispered vocal deliveries with dense textual arrangements delivered by a broad palette of instrumentation.
‘lupa’ is an ep of self-produced tracks that trails forthcoming full-length ‘roma’. both ep & album reference the ancient roman tale of romulus & remus. there are choral vocals, waves of distortion, string quartet arrangements & roughly-hewn bedroom folk across its four tracks. recorded entirely at home over several months, almost every instrument was performed by james vella (yndi halda, saint coltrane, fatcat records) with some additional help from guest musicians, including mice parade’s adam pierce & emiliana torrini.
