Tasseomancy, the art of reading tea leaves and coffee grounds for fortune telling, was already the title of the first ever EP by Ghost Bees anno 2008. Now the Canadian twin sisters Sari and Romy Lightman have also renamed the project. It was their great great grandmother who practised the spooky (if it works) hokum, but their voices on the new track and foretaste “Soft Feet”sound as eerily-beautiful. Like they would be standing on the iceberg singing of the ill-fated Titanic out into the cold night.
Their by now also renamed debut full-length Ulalume (formerly In A Glass Darkly) got produced by Taylor Kirk of Timbre Timbre and will be released August 9 via Turf in the UK. Tasseomancy are also part of the Austra live band and will hence support them(selves) on their upcoming European tour in June.
