Former member of Arab Strap teams up with RM Hubbert and Siobhan Wilson.
The album title has a dual meaning - sex and death. These are common themes from Aidan Moffat; since his early days with Arab Strap, he has explored these subjects with a grace and grit that plunges deep into the human soul. Now teaming up with fellow Scot, singer and guitarist extraordinaire, RM Hubbert, for Here Lies The Body, their rapturously received album released earlier this year. The record weaves beautiful, spidery guitar work, haunting piano lines, lush strings, delicate percussion, fizzing 808 beats, synth pop, samba, and moments of jazz, while Moffat’s rich voice carries the narrative in rich grumbles, hushed whispers, and revealing spoken word.
Siobhan Wilson, whose cello and vocals you can also hear on the album will be joining the boys onstage as well as playing a set of her own superb songs to kick proceedings off.
