For many years, Simon Raymonde helped to make glassy, elusive whirls of sound-beauty with the Cocteau Twins. Now he’s got a new project called Snowbird, a duo with the singer-songwriter Stephanie Dosen. Their debut album is called moon, and it’ll include guest contributions from people like Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway and Midlake’s Eric Pulido and McKenzie Smith. The album’s first single “Porcelain” is a gorgeously gauzy and fragile piece of piano-and-voice impressionism. Listen to it below.
Moon is out in January on Bella Union.
