New Music: Rachel Zeffira- Here On In
You may know singer Rachel Zeffira as one half of Cat Eyes, the 2011 duo that also featured Faris Badwan of The Horrors. The singer-songwriter has already put out her debut album, The Deserters, in the UK and now Paper Bag Records is ready to introduce her first record to this side of the pond. The Canadian born Zeffira is a classically trained singer who is following in the foot steps of fellow Canuck opera tutored/indie pop singer Katie Stelmanis of Austra.
Her debut single Here On In features the musicianship of the band Toy and Melissa Rigby, the drummer in the band S.C.U.M. The track will most likely be compared to Austra and Zola Jesus, but Here On In is a lot more nu gaze like the boys in the aforementioned Toy and The Horrors and less goth than her indie pop goth female contemporaries. Listen below:
The Deserters will be available March 12th via Paper Bag Records.
For fans of Toy, Nico, The Horrors
