“Landslides is the song that brought SpaceAcre into existence so we feel like it’s the right place to start. We didn’t mean to create a new band, but everything just clicked from that first collaboration. It felt like this track was already out in the air, waiting to fall into place.”
France based, British duo SpaceAcre brings additional delight in musical dance in aural excellence. With their debut EP (to drop in August), is teased into beautiful satchels of ambience and glittering substance of emotive insinuations.
Utilizing the faintest of touches the duo glistens with effortless heft and gravitas through ‘Landslides’.
The duo stated: “The rest of EP evolved from ‘Landslides’ as we gradually discovered our sound and started to push our creative process, playing with different starting points and approaches. We love being in the studio with James as the vibe and energy are amazing and you never know when a moment of manic inspiration is about to hit. It’s an EP that is close to our hearts as some of these stories are pretty personal. It’s mainly about conflict; internal battles, prejudice and complex relationships.”
SpaceAcre formed by complete accident in mid 2019 while its members, Phoebe Little (lead vocals, guitar, keys) and Jas Scott (vocals, bass, synths, cello), were at a writing camp in Normandy. Producer James Sanger (Brian Eno, The Cure) arranged the collaboration after he was sent a recording of Phoebe’s voice by a friend. Scott’s obsession with electronica, cinematic music and unusual time signatures combined with Little’s love of strong melodies, introspective lyrics and story-telling come together to form an unlikely synthesis.
In a word of verbose, there are islands of glimmering ecstasy. ‘Landslides’ is one of those islands, where we can find solace, for a time, and for a while.
