Psych folk super-duo’s eerie drones

In Babylonian mythology, Anahita is the goddess of water, fertility, healing and wisdom…a powerful symbol of the female life force. In musical terms, Anahita is a new collaboration between Espers cellist Helena Espvall and Fursaxa’s Tara Burke, a fragile, unearthly combination of female life forces that takes shape in floating vocals, plinking strings and Middle Eastern tonalities. The duo’s first record together, recorded primarily on four track and at home, roams an alternate universe, full of haunting harmonies and fleeting glimpses of infinity. The disc, called Matricaria,  is out on Important Records now.
