Cate Le Bon recently released her second album ‘CYRK’ to huge critical acclaim. The cavalcade of comparisons that crop up in every review - John Cale, Nico, Malkmus et al - give you an idea of the regard in which Le Bon is currently held.
Now she returns with mini album ‘CYRK II’ on vinyl (including digital download) and digital.
The two records were recorded at the same time but the songs naturally pooled into two camps. Whilst ‘CYRK’ bounds around erratically and unknowingly like a younger sibling, ‘CYRK II’ is its older sister, bearing songs of a more starkly confessional nature.
Although there is a longing and sadness that litters ‘CYRK II’, it never truly realises itself, often hiding in the forest of lyrics and interrupting instrumentation when on the cusp of revealing too much.
