Let's start by saying I listen to an insane amount of music; I consume it voraciously, and precious little makes it to my 'keeps' list as these ears have become very jaded over the years and it takes something really, really special to make me pay attention. And this is amazingly special.
Gazelle Twin's music is mysterious and captivating, and creates a marvellously enigmatic atmosphere all of its own. She uses her voice fearlessly and with unfettered imagination. The vocals on the track "Changelings", especially, left an indelible impression on me. She cites William Byrd and Meredith Monk as influences... groovy. Also she lives in the same town as me, so with any luck I'll be able to catch some shows sometime soon.
I can't wait to see where she goes from here, and hope that the acclaim and fame which will surely come her way if there's any justice (and there may not be) will not leave her as some gibbering cokehead duetting with Usher at some horrific American music award show.
