Track Of The Day: Bamboo – ‘Weeping Idols’

Following 2015’s Prince Pansori Priestess and 2017’s The Dragon Flies Away, London/Brighton duo Rachel Horwood (Trash Kit, Halo Halo) and Nick Carlisle (Peepholes, Don’t Argue), aka Bamboo, have now announced a brand new album.

Taken from the album, new single ‘Weeping Idols’ is an uplifting and subtly captivating offering. Propelled by a thunderous sense of urgency, a twinkling soundscape is created as swirling interwoven melodies and chiming hooks provide the backdrop for Rachel’s soaring majestic vocals.

Musically inspired by Jodorowsky’s graphic novel The Incal, ‘Weeping Idols’ uses religious references and criticism of the Catholic church within its lyrics to tackle more personal issues, oozing a poignancy akin to the sweeping ethereal power of Kate Bush.

Filmed and edited by Jack Barraclough, watch the new video for ‘Weeping Idols’ now:

Daughters Of The Sky, the upcoming new album from Bamboo, is out on 14th June via Upset The Rhythm. Pre-order here.
