Strata Florida – ‘Made Of Stars’

louise-trehy-profile

Louise Trehy (former member of the 4AD shoegaze duo Swallow) released her second album in twenty years this week! Working under the moniker Strata Florida, she gives us the full length ‘Made Of Stars’ (available via Saint Marie). Following a long hiatus from music, Trehy recruited musician Peter Pavli for the album and together they began a DIY recording process in 2012. The resulting songs are gritty, dark and raw. However the light falsetto vocals keep ‘Made Of Stars’ from being a heavy affair. Album stand outs ‘Hang On’ and ‘Take Me Out’ both have an off-kilter, wonky feel which is not going to be for everyone. But, I don’t think Strata Florida are much concerned for pop appeal!
