marriages is a new band comprised of red sparowes members emma ruth rundle (vocals, guitar), greg burns (bass, synthesizer) and david clifford (drums). their sound is a singularly sensual kind of heavy, dramatic rock, but perhaps the most stark contrast to their other band, marriages employs vocals in their songs. their music is also considerably darker and more experimental, drawn from a wide range of styles and ideas. emma's breathy, understated delivery provides a focal point - the eye of the proverbial storm. a haunting presence, as elusive as it is alluring, her voice is a shore upon which waves of overdriven bass, thunderous drums, and cosmic guitars and synths swell and crash. kitsune is their 6-song debut release, a short introduction of an album whose undeniably epic proportions suggest massive things to come. recorded with the formidable toshi kasai (melvins, red sparowes, tool) at the controls, kitsune presents a collection of poignant, emotionally-charged tracks that wriggle free of easy classification. the comparisons are diverse; cocteau twins and zola jesus would appear to be as influential as boris and godspeed you! black emperor.
