Welsh born singer and artist Cate Le Bon can do pretty much whatever she wants. Alongside being a multifaceted performer who can play multiple instruments, she’s proven that high art can still sound great. Bradford Cox of Deerhunter is somewhat similar in those regards. So it only makes sense that the two of them would announce a new EP together. With Myths 004 the duo have cooked up some intriguing sounds ahead of its November release.
The intricate melody of instrumentation here mixes well with Le Bon’s voice. Like a tender butterfly raising out of the morning dew, Le Bon sounds free here. While her vocals are the driving force, the mix of piano and percussion make for an intriguing ride. Cox lends spoken word to add to the depth of an already engaging track. It feels exactly what you’d expect when these two intertwine their sounds.
“Secretary” can be streamed above or on YouTube, it can be purchased wherever you download music and Myths 004 is available for pre-order directly from Mexican Summer ahead of its November 01 release date. Cate Le Bon will be on tour starting tonight at Folklore in London, UK until December 15 at Croxton Bandroom in Melbourne, Australia. Her complete run of tour dates can be located here.
