Lucy Gooch’s music is a beautiful ethereal fog; like hearing a subliminal echo of
Kate Bush on a fading tape loop, masked by an internal wall of sound that
vibrates with the hum of everyday life. The ‘Rain’s Break’ EP is her first release for Fire, following the much-touted ‘Rushing’ EP.

Inspired by the early technicolour films of Powell and Pressburger, Lucy uses
synthesisers and vocal layering to concentrate elements of each film’s score
and narrative into songs which move through different moods of yearning and renewal. So, it is amidst 1940’s austerity that these films were an escape, an over-rich
backdrop of possibilities. A snatched piece of dialogue, the film’s score, the
crackle of uncertainty all succumbs to the layered ambience of Lucy’s music as
she traces moods of yearning and renewal on ‘Rain’s Break’ EP.
