Starless

Paper (Last Night From Glasgow)

By • Apr 21st, 2020 • Category: Single review

Coming soon is a pretty monumental album (‘Earthbound’) instigated by Paul McGeechan with the “Starless” moniker.

This initial taster is a collaboration with the peerless (ok not calling her a national treasure cos she would probably punch me) chanteuse of these parts, Emma Pollock.

Her voice does however get richer and more expressive with each passing year – over a piano backdrop she emotes, and soon enough the song picks up a gear with electronic percussion and synths. Strings also get involved in a complex buildup of instrumentation.

There are hints of “la recherche du temps perdu”, regret and also looking forwards.

This track is a teasing trailer for what is a major and long-in-the-making collaborative work by McGeechan, which includes some real surprises – due out in May, on the irrepressible Last Night From Glasgow, helping us through these times as only they can do.
