Canadian duo Tasseomancy have set their sight on the UK - stream new track 'Braid. Wind Is Coming' below.
Twin sisters, Sari and Romy Lightman have made music together their entire lives. In fact, the communication between the pair borders on telepathy. A fact which perhaps explains their ongoing project.
Tasseomancy is based on the scientific name given to the reading of tea leaves, and is a reference to the duo's great-great grandmother. The pair's music has an ethereal, other worldly feel, with their voices frequently overlapping, collapsing exhausted into a heap.
A cult phenomenon in their native Canada, Tasseomancy have now outlined plans for two small UK shows. Hitting the Crouch End Festival on November 16th, the pair will then play a headline show at London venue The Waiting Room on November 19th.
New album 'Braid. Wind Is Coming' arrives later this year, but until then Clash is able to stream the title cut. Driven by subtle, sparse yet driving percussion, reference points include Kate Bush or Bat For Lashes. On, and that's a Gertrude Stein sample at the end...
Check it out below.
Tasseomancy have announced the following shows:
16 Crouch End The End Festival
19 London The Waiting Room
