We are thrilled to welcome the widely lauded Lucy Gooch to Fire Songs our publishing division. Following her first release on Fire Records earlier this year, ‘Rain’s Break’, we now revisit her acclaimed debut with this newly expanded edition of ‘Rushing’ that features an exclusive brand new single, ‘Orthione’.
‘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.
“Orthione is a pinkish grey creature, of exoskeleton and soft fleshy underside. A scavenger – a parasite of the murky ancient, caught like water softly so soft as a word as a whisper. I looked for sparseness on this accompaniment to ‘Rushing’ and I hope it works as a bookend to the title track” Lucy Gooch
“The pastoral element of the music resonates more as you tune in to Lucy’s unique vocal.” Loud And Quiet
Lucy Gooch’s ‘Rushing’ EP (Expanded Edition) is released on 21st January 2022. You can catch her live on tour with Jane Weaver through February 2022 and two headline dates in London and Bristol.
“A lush synth-driven dreamscape that engulfs you in near-cinematic rises.” Louder Than War
