Yr Lovely Dead Moon is a musio/poetic project led by Rachel Margetts. Live electronic instrumentals and beat-heavy composition drive absurdist, spoken narratives. This is cosmic lounge, Post-punk-techno horror, sexy blue jam.
Yr Lovely Dead Moon’s self-titled album will be released in 2019 and has worked with collaborations from Joe Campbell, Greta Buikute and Ben Osborn.
WANDA Says on Yr Lovely Dead Moon:
“This is cosmic-inflected lounge music; 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, into the mind of a refracted, and deliriously, schizo-lucid woman-narrator, whose oracular storytelling takes us beyond the urban, technocratic apocalypse, to a world of unknown contours, and insubstantial visions. Yr Lovely Dead Moon recalls the epic poetry and narratives of messianic seers and troubadours. An ultra slowed down, and refracted, North West version of Patti Smith’s Piss Factory unfolds. From work, desire, dread. The capitalist enslavement of body and mind, to ecstatic oneiric escape. The human and non-human meet in an eerie dance of electronic and organic delirium.”
