The last we heard from The Unusual History of Ether, a songwriting partnership between Rebecca Collins and Danish guitarist Mikkel Ploug, was last year and their rather excellent Part One EP.
The Unusual History of Ether have graced us with news that their debut album, A Distant Age, will be released on 2nd September. And as a taste of what’s to come, they have kindly provided ‘Stop Talking’ for our listening pleasure. ‘Stop Talking’ is probably as uptempo as we’ve heard The Unusual History of Ether, skipping along a lively beat, rumbling guitar and keys led pysch freak-out. Collins’ vocals remain supremely immaculate and it does retain all the hallmarks which made their previous work profoundly beautiful indie pop songs. All in all, impressive stuff once again from The Unusual History of Ether.
You can give ‘Stop Talking’ the once over below but that’s not all. The band are hitting Irish shores for a tour in October & you can check out all the dates here.
