Brooklyn psych-folk artist Anastasia Coope has announced her first single in two years, which will be out as a 7″ single via New Gold, the new label started by Liars‘ Angus Andrew. “Tough Sun” starts as breathy acapella but steadily adds delicate layers of percussion and acoustic guitar. You can watch the video, directed by Louisa Tantillo, below.
“There’s a magical quality to Anastasia’s music,” says Angus Andrew. “It has that captured in a jar feel somewhat akin to Alan Lomax’s field recordings. Wondrous songs exist in their own temporal space, created according to an unhurried logic that feels contrary to the modern world. I am devout.”
The Tough Sun 7″ will be out October 6 via New Gold but you can listen to both sides, including the equally ethereal an beautiful “Seemeely,” below.
Coope just played a string of Brooklyn shows earlier this month. Stay tuned for more dates.
