Vocalist Elizabeth Fraser and percussionist Damon Reece have detailed their newest project – Sun’s Signature – a stunning 5-song EP out physically on June 18th via Partisan Records for Record Store Day, with a digital release following a few weeks later in July (date TBD). To coincide with the announcement, the life and musical partners have shared genre-defying highlight “Golden Air,” which is accompanied by a visualizer and marks Fraser’s first piece of new music in 13 years.
The idea for Sun’s Signature was born out of an invitation from ANOHNI in 2012 for Fraser and Reece to be the centrepiece of her celebrated curation of the Meltdown Festival at the Royal Festival Hall. It was there where they debuted embryonic forms of these songs, and ultimately that performance galvanized confidence in the project. Since that performance, Fraser has toured on the recent Mezzanine XXI world tour with Massive Attack, and has further lent her voice to an eclectic range of projects including Jonsi’s (Sigur Ros) “Cannibal”, Sam Lee’s “The Moon Shines Bright”, and Oneohtrix Point Never’s “Tales From The Trash Stratum”. Writing and recording together, Elizabeth and Damon have also provided the soundtrack for Graham Duff’s TV miniseries The Nightmare World of H.G. Wells.
