“Perfect existential listening” The Guardian
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
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.
“The moment is short, but Lucy Gooch’s music makes it last forever” NPR
Originally from Norfolk, Lucy studied Fine Art and later moved to Bristol to join
the emerging ambient scene there - gradually developing her writing and finally
releasing her debut ‘Rushing’ EP in early 2020. Over the past year, she’s dipped
into a wealth of long gone celluloid as the basis for a filmic journey, a five song
EP that relives formative movies in her unique take on ecclesiastical pop.
This is music that takes you places, shifts focus, paints large canvases.
“An unusually developed aesthetic vision, one that joins the atmospheric quality
of ambient music with the structure of choral composition and the seeming
effortlessness of pop.” Pitchfork
