Snowbird - Porcelain
The glittering flames that are the legacy of Cocteau Twins, have been rekindled with this haunting ballad by Snowbird. Stephanie Dosen, who's vocal territory is somewhere between Erica Foster and Elizabeth Fraser, joins former Cocteau Twins mastermind, Simon Raymonde. With this jam I keep hoping some spectre of a guitar is going to jangle into the foreground, but instead we get a few wisps of a piano, played beneath Dosen's voice. This is not a club banger, but it is pretty neat!
