‘Death To Everyone But Us’

A going concern for around 5 years now, this London-based duo are only just gearing up to release their debut album, You Are The One I Pick, out November 2nd through Kranky Records. Opting for the homemade approach, recording the songs minimally, they used their own equipment and almost lost their minds over frequencies and resonation. Not that you would know it from the outcome. ‘Death To Everyone But Us’ is a positively confusing little song with drowsy piano and contrasting, almost abrupt strings. The vocals are hasty and bizarre; conceptually a bit like Kate Nash doing performance poetry. Frontwoman Lucinda Chua (a classically trained pianist and cellist) has a somewhat dry voice that – perhaps intentionally – gets lost in the instrumental arrangements, making it a challenge to understand the lyrics. But the string arrangements more than make up for any deficit in clarity. A very clever little piece. MP3 after the jump.
