Lucy Duncombe

Brace / Mend (10")

Label: 12th Isle

Format: 10"

Genre: Electronic

In stock


Tip! Theatric melodrama from Glasgow’s Lucy Duncombe, making a grand debut on 12th Isle sure to appeal to fans of Julia Holter, Lyra Pramuk, Enya  Sibling piece to a longer, self-released tape (‘The Rapture of Cellular Accretion’), the two works of ‘Brace/Mend’ accomplish a lofty scope with soaring, consonant strings, organ and skilfully operatic vocals enacted by Lucy Dumcombe and co-produced by the artist with Kenneth Wilson and William Aikman.  

  ‘Brace’ sees Lucy’s elegiac vocals deftly spiral around a sweepingly grand string and synth pad arrangement in a certain sort of gaelic romantic air redolent of Enya or Lyra Pramuk’s melodrama. ‘Mend’ is more low-key and succinct, resting a more reserved vocal performance on a bed of swaying organ chords that grow more rhythmically confident and rise up the register into dreamy thizz.
