Following their debut collaborative album in 2013, Liz Harris (aka Grouper) and Jefre-Cantu Ledesma (Root Strata label founder) have released their second album as Raum, presenting a beautiful yet haunting ode for a lost friend.
“Daughter captures a strange time spent in the desert, later added to, edited and finally made sense of after we lost the friend we’d been there with. There are fragments of beginnings and a deep sense of loss. A requiem, a lullaby, goodbye.”
Spanning elements of dream pop, woozy ambient and meditative lullabies, ‘Daugther‘ continues Raum’s explorations into exquisitely heart wrenching music, composed to be experienced as one long piece with each track transitioning into the next without pause.
For those yearning to experience Liz Harris live, Grouper embarks on a tour this year with performances scheduled to take place at Rewire Festival (The Hague), National Concert Hall Dublin (Ireland), Barbican Centre (UK), INTONAL (Sweden), Athens Conservatoire (Greece), Teatro Viriato (Portugal).
‘Daughter’ is out now via Yellow Electric. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
