“For an artist whose favourite trick is the seemingly infinite crescendo, she clearly knows the value of restraint” Pitchfork
“Expansive, upfront, spectral pop” KEXP
Following Lucy Gooch’s acclaimed ‘Rain’s Break’, her first release on Fire Records earlier this year, the artist’s celebrated debut EP ‘Rushing’ (originally released on Past Inside The Present) is revisited with new artwork and a brand new track, ‘Orthione’.
“Lucy’s sound marries the etheral qualities of ambient music with buoyant, effortless pop” Crack
‘Rushing’ in its original shorter five-track incarnation was heralded as a touchstone beneath the cascading torrent of modern times. An intimate collection of songs built around Lucy’s vocals, the newly added stand-out track ‘Orthione’ trips into the esoteric world of Laurie Anderson and Thomas Thallis; here her voice is the grounding force.
“The pastoral element of the music resonates more as you tune in to Lucy’s unique vocal.” Loud And Quiet
supported by 16 fans who also own “Rushing EP (Expanded Edition)”
Listened to this on the plane and transformed my flight. Others looked at me and fell silent. Babies stopped crying. Flight attendants paused in the aisle. The pilot spoke over the intercom but said nothing.
