Many fine things come out of London’s Resonance FM - DJ Ritu’s A World in London, Debbie Golt’s Outer Globe and Jude Cowan Montague’s The News Agents and now, ‘Sorrow Soothe’, the latest project to have been born at the London Musicians’ Collective Resonance FM.
Created by three very different composers who met during an interview at Resonance, Daughters of the Desert are composer, producer Esbe, writer presenter Jude Cowan Montague and audio engineer, Mia Kukathasan.
Produced by Esbe remotely during lock down, Sorrow Soothe is a soaring and gentle collection that incorporates experiments in voice and instrumentation. Its songs, incantations, and pounding rhythmic beats are interwoven with strings and electronic samples.
Enigmatic whisperings, a sound that reflects the loneliness of desert life, and a silken vocal lament of isolation, the songs reflect the landscape of contemplation and the hardship of what it is to be human, but in particular, a woman.
Released on New Cat Records through Cadiz Music on March 26th, 2021. .
