Yr Lovely Dead Moon is an experimental, electronic spoken-word project from Rachel Margetts. A sound spliced with nods to no-wave and glitch and saturated with a twisted, melodic Musique concrète. Heady, stuttered poetry reminiscent of the explosive vocal energy of Anne Clark, the gender hypnotics of Jenny Hval.
Yr Lovely Dead Moon- Kali. Release with Karl Records, Berlin, 2018.
The Project has been described by Ransom Note as “narratives that drift atop cosmic lounge and post-punk influences; a synthesis of processed sounds and live electro acoustic forms” and from Independent label WANDA “troubadour heroism, a soundtrack for a virtual film. Abstract, glitched out and layered with languid rhythms, melodic refrains and spiralling clarinet, we are slowly and gradually beamed into a world ‘beyond’ this world.”
Yr Lovely Dead Moon- Physical Corpses. Release with Kepler 452b, Berlin, 2019.
Yr Lovely Dead Moon’s debut self-titled album is to be released in 2020. For this Rachel Margetts worked with collaborations from Joe Campbell, Greta Buikute (Odie Ji Ghast) and Ben Osborn.
