Their debut LP Ojalá is released on Oct 27th 2017
The former Cocteau Twin Simon Raymonde also celebrates 20 years piloting his revered record label Bella Union, he has scaled another personal peak with this new collaboration with drummer Richie Thomas.
They’re called Lost Horizons, their stunning debut album is a rare sighting of two gifted musicians who, for different reasons, have been largely absent from music-making for the last 20 years.
The record is proof of a telepathic relationship through music, established when the pair first became collaborators and friends in the eighties.
Ojalá incorporates a heady cast of guest singers. Some are signed to Bella Union, such as Marissa Nadler, former Midlake frontman Tim Smith, Cameron Neal (Horse Thief), others are long-time favourites of Raymonde’s (Leila Moss of The Duke Spirit), or newer discoveries (Beth Cannon, Ed Riman, Gemma Donleavy and Phil McDonnell). And then there is the incomparable Karen Peris of The Innocence Mission, one of Raymonde’s all-time favourites, in her first collaboration outside of The Innocent Mission and solo recordings, and finally the wonderful Sharon Van Etten.
