Marina is back in Ireland this week for a show in The Academy tonight and a Green Spheres gig in Carlow with Digitalism and Miike Snow so I figured this cover of her song was particularly pertinent.
It’s from Gaggle who are a un-nerving 22-women strong alt-choir from London who sound like they’d be right at home on the soundtrack to doom. They draw their inspirations from slave songs, all-girl groups and punk yet are much more polychromatic than that. They’ve been called “nu rave Pre- Raphaelites” by Lauren Laverne and a “sci-fi riot choir” by Vice. I’ll call them a neon-clad bludgeoning coven of cosmic vocal sounds. Check them out.
‘Hidden Army’ is a bit foreboding.
