With Berklee-schooled singer-songwriter and fiddler Laura Cortese at the helm, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards stir up bewitching sweet/edgy concoctions of Americana, retro-pop and chamberfolk flavours, blending string-quartet instrumentation and spine-tingling swathes of harmony with ease on their new Compass Records release California Calling.
Not so long ago, the very concept of merging Gaelic song with ambient electronica would induce reflex shudders, triggered by umpteen Celtic/New Age abominations. Acclaim across both worlds for WHɎTE- Mull singer Alasdair C. Whyte and (unrelated) Glasgow electronic composer/pianist Ross Whyte – complete with Martyn Bennett/Sigur Rós comparisons, signifies how far we’ve travelled.
