It has been far too long since we’ve heard from Fauna Twin – the pairing of Parisian singer-songwriter Claire Jacquemard Ginsberg & Wales’ Owain Ginsberg (Hippies Vs Ghosts / We Are Animal) – who released their debut ‘The Hydra’ in 2016.
The good news is that toward the end of 2020, Fauna Twin returned with a wonderful new single called ‘Rudy’. It has an eerie and mysterious air to it as an insistent strum joins a meandering groove in taking us on a woozy waltz through hushed and haunting atmospheric textures that slowly swell, sending a shiver down the spine, while Jacquemard Ginsberg’s powerful vocals rise to soar above with stunning consequence. ‘Rudy’ is sublime, a chilling track that tenderly introducing itself before swelling and engulfing you completely. It is a magnificent evolution of what made their previous work so compelling.
Listen to ‘Rudy’ below and rumour has it, we should be seeing (or hearing rather) more from Fauna Twin in 2021.
