Soaked in ethereal reverb, her sophomore is a spellbinding work of glacial, spirit-invoking melodies – invitingly haunting.
“Emptying my mind of clutter, I explored writing with guitars & synth drones, along with piano & reverb, to create depth & texture”, says Trappes. one hears Badalamenti & Julee Cruise’s work for ‘Blue Velvet’ & ‘Twin Peaks’, Slowdive’s dreampop, the scorched comedowns of early Primal Scream, Colin Newman’s dark melancholia, plus contemporaries like Tropic Of Cancer & Sky H1. These distilled, rarefied creations take echoes as their starting point, with Trappes summoning swathes of tones, textures & emotions into something ethereal but also powerful, like an evocation of spirits. It’s also deeply melodic, with her intimate, maternally-tender voice floating in the middle of each three-dimensional, womb-like sonic space. “A shiver inducing introspective work, drawing influence from Nick Cave & Grouper” - The FADER.
