Two of Scotland’s leading female musicians; Jenny Reeves of Strike the Colours and Jill O’Sullivan of Sparrow & the Workshop; join forces with added drummer and electronics programmer Jonny Scott, and manager/guitarist Scott Paterson to produce the vowel-obliterating Bdy_Prts.
Fusing synths, electronica, 90’s R’n’B, indie and even some folk touches, their sound will transport you to future-pop dimensions where hooks, melodies, beats and bleeps collide.
Produced by Miaoux Miaoux, the duos first track ‘IDLU’ is oriented towards the, um, oriental, with the continent’s fondness for wind chimes and crisp alternating femme trills. Additionally, cutting lyrics are laid across a slick backing beat.
Follow-up ‘Cold Shoulder’ adds a foundation of patchwork electronics, cut-up vocals and processed guitar to their pristine harmonies, and the result is a fully rounded, funk-edged hit-in-waiting.
