Emma Tricca’s first LP since 2014’s Relic is another record of delicate, dreamy folk-rock. Devendra Banhart and Jane Weaver spring to mind on tracks like the gorgeous, feathery ‘Julian’s Wings’. St. Peter also features a pretty star-studded credit reel - members of Sonic Youth, The Dream Syndicate and Paper Dollhouse all make appearances.

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 25 April 2018

A new album of Emma Tricca's songwriting, slightly vulnerable, careworn singing and romantic folk-rock stylings was always going to be an attractive proposition. However, I wasn't fully prepared for the extent of the emotional journey I was about to undertake when I first listened to Emma's beautiful and dreamlike new record, St. Peter.

Opening with ‘Winter, My Dear’, Emma wears her love of the season’s changes on her sleeve.. Or rather, on the cozy-looking oversized scarf she cheerfully dons as depicted on the back of the record sleeve. It’s a lovely, mellow sound shot through with images of walking amongst trees on an October morning, bare branches overhead with watery sunlight filtering through to the soft carpet of leaves underfoot. ‘Fire Ghost’, meanwhile, has a vibe of sitting by a fireside in the presence of the spectres of poets; particularly John Keats and W.B. Yeats. Such is the strength of the echoes and evocations of the past.

There’s a sense of gently undulating motion too, as if being cast upon a boundless yet calm ocean, with the horizon constantly shifting focus and placement. Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley is on drums, and with The Dream Syndicate’s Jason Victor on guitar and Pete Calub on bass the trio were able to morph rhythmically to channel The Velvet Underground while retaining that beloved rootsy, Fairport Convention feel. ‘Salt’ is another standout, with Emma’s delicate voice and feathery strummed guitar floating above a perfectly poised rhythm section and supremely autumnal strings. Gorgeous.
