Limited yellow colored vinyl LP pressing. 2023 release. Sun's Signature is the current project of vocalist Elizabeth Fraser and percussionist Damon Reece. Their stunning, self-titled debut EP was originally released as a Record Store Day exclusive in 2022. Fraser and Reece's early careers in some of the world's most heralded musical groups are well documented. Elizabeth, the unforgettable voice of Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil's "Song to the Siren," is also internationally recognized for her vocal contributions to Massive Attack's trail-blazing 'Mezzanine' LP - most notably their biggest hit, "Teardrop". Damon, the long-time drummer with political art-rock giants Massive Attack, also spent the '90s as a member of Spiritualized and Echo and the Bunnymen. He has also recorded and performed with Baxter Dury, Goldfrapp, The Flies, and Butch Vig's 5 Billion in Diamonds + many more. The songs on 'Sun's Signature' have been ruminating in the background of Fraser and Reece's lives in some form for 20+ years, ever since Cocteau Twins broke up in 1997. It marks the first artistic collaboration between these life and musical partners that isn't a film score or soundtrack. This EP is the sound of a true creative partnership. Highly evolved, yet simultaneously primal - the music is an utterly original, compelling, and lush collection of songs that has developed through an Alice in Wonderland journey through life and music.
