Rachel Zeffira is playing the i Arena at this year's Latitude festival at Henham Park, Suffolk
Thursday 18 July 2013
The festival is this weekend. Find out more about it here
Nestled under a canopy of trees in the Latitude woods, the i Arena will showcase the most exciting music stars of tomorrow in a truly atmospheric woodland setting.
Best known as one half of sophisticated pop duo Cat’s Eyes alongside The Horrors frontman Faris Badwan, Canadian soprano and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Zeffira emerged in her own right late last year with her debut solo album ‘The Deserters’.
A record that grew from her first solo recordings including a particularly wondrous cover of My Bloody Valentine’s ‘To Here Knows When’, Rachel was spurred on by positive reviews to write an entire album, often in unexpected locations including local churches.
The suitably beguiling result combines Rachel’s classical training with haunting orchestral pop experimentation on a record that stands defiantly and beautifully in a class of its own.
