Virginia Wing – Pale Burnt Lake (cassette)
After three stunning albums that reminds us “of the astonishing things you can do with pop music” (The Quietus), Virginia Wing return with new limited-edition cassette ‘Pale Burnt Lake’ released 19th June ahead of their upcoming US summer tour.
‘Pale Burnt Lake’ is a collection of live interludes, abstract sketches, free form spoken word and improvised soundtrack. Using themes and motifs formed around making ‘Ecstatic Arrow’, Pale Burnt Tape is in equal parts soothing and disorientating, intimate and abstract, combining somnambulant synths with Chris Duffin’s harmonised saxophone to create a fully immersive sound bed on which Alice Merida Richards’ vocals recline.
Enigmatic synth pop title track, ‘Pale Burnt Lake’, is taken from their acclaimed last album ‘Ecstatic Arrow’.
