Oracle Sisters - Paris I + Paris II Vinyl
- 12” black vinyl (33 rpm)
Recorded at La Ferme records on a farm in the Arcachon region of France the band settled down to a live work/rhythm and routine for over a week, sleeping in the studio surrounded by chickens and an agriculture farm with a honey bee plantation, the ocean and pine trees.
Recording all hours of the day and night when the mood was right they recorded 1 batch of songs with drums and drum machine layered live and 1 batch of songs, all playing live in 1 room….the difference in the sound, feel and aesthetic of the songs made them decide to split these in to two separate EP’s.
Overdubs were done back in Paris.
The songs represent a collection of the first songs written by Lewis & Chris & Juilia arriving in Paris from Scotland, New York and Helsinki.
Parisian trio Oracle Sisters return with their second EP - Paris II - released via NY/LA independent label 22TWENTY.
The record reflects a vision of the eponymous French capital converse to the future-nostalgic balm of its sister EP, Paris I, released last summer. Across give tracks, Paris II establishes a raw and romantic mood, with flashes of dissonance punctuating harmonies and melancholy filtering into live recorded soundscapes.
In an imaginary Paris a century from now, Oracle Sisters are the house band in a clandestine bar for dissident artists.
