“Tracyanne & Danny” MERGE

Exclaim! - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

May 25. Tracyanne & Danny is a new col­lab­o­ra­tive project be­tween singer­song­writ­ers Tracyanne Camp­bell (Cam­era Ob­scura) and Danny Cough­lan (Cry­baby). A pool of songs were recorded at Clash­nar­row, a stu­dio in Helms­dale in the high­lands of Scot­land owned by the es­teemed Ed­wyn Collins. Ses­sions took place through­out 2016 and 2017. Ed­wyn co-pro­duced along with en­gi­neer and multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist Sean Read (Dexys). They had the use of Ed­wyn’s vin­tage gear as they in­voked a range of shared in­flu­ences: The Roches, Dion, Lou Reed, The Flamin­gos, Serge Gains­bourg, Santo & Johnny, and The Style Coun­cil. Tracyanne & Danny is not a di­vert­ing cu­rio or a wee stop on the road to some­place else. It is a shared artis­tic aes­thetic, forged over time. They have fig­ured out how to fit round each other and work to­gether, cre­at­ing a re­ward­ing mu­si­cal syn­ergy.
