7digital What we said: The annals of music history are littered with unusual collaborations, but Rachel Zeffira and Faris Badwan’s Cat’s Eyes project in 2011 proved more intriguing than most. Buoyed by the critical success of that experiment, the Canadian multi-instrumentalist’s since gone solo, and now presents her debut LP. Zeffira’s classical training is evident from the offset: the undulating piano melody of the title track is sensitively embellished with woodwind, strings and Zeffira’s sweet, soprano sighs, and comes out sounding how we imagine Natasha Khan’s songs might were they scored by Ennio Morricone. Elsewhere, members of Toy and The Horrors lend a hand, and throughout there’s a lovely layer of reverb adding a dreamy feel to her expertly-crafted baroque-pop.
