Track Of The Day #393: Snowbird – ‘Porcelain’

Happened across this late last night just as we were powering down for the evening, alas we can’t remember where exactly we picked it up from though if we recall rightly there’s an album due sometime in January. In short the closest thing to heaven, or at the very least the Cocteau Twins, that your likely to hear till the year end and beyond.

Snowbird finds Cocteau-er Simon Raymonde shimmying up to Stephanie Dosen for what is one of the most beguiled beauties we’ve heard all year. Thawed from that forthcoming set is the aptly titled ‘Porcelain’, a breathless slice of bewitchment cradled in the fragile elegance of daintily dipped Antonymes murmurs, sensitively toned in an alluring classicism and softly kissed in the genteel tremble of hushed melodic timbres. Shimmered in romantic arcs and bruised in lovelorn lilts, Dosen’s demurred siren-esque coos soothe, sigh and seduce amid an enchanted magicalia dimpled in the twilight twinkle of Brontean swirls.
