Tucked away inside Betty’s, a remote Chapel Hill recording studio owned and run by Sylvan Esso, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jenn Wasner (aka Flock of Dimes) enlists the talents of friends and local NC indie-electronic musicians for the live debut of “2 Heads.”
As the first track on Wasner’s critically acclaimed ‘Head of Roses,’ released earlier this month, “2 Heads” is an evolving blend of Wasner’s undaunted vocals, fluttering synth arpeggios, and rich, sustaining bass lines by way of cello and Matriarch.
Wasner, on lead vocals and at the helm of two Matriarch analog synthesizers, is joined for this performance by Andy Stack (Wye Oak, Joyero) on cello; Alexandra Sauser-Monnig (Daughter of Swords, Mountain Man), Molly Sarlé (Mountain Man), and Amelia Meath (Sylvan Esso, Mountain Man) on backing vocals; and Nick Sanborn (Sylvan Esso, Made of Oak) with an assortment of Eurorack effects modules.
‘Head of Roses’ is out now on Sub Pop. Listen to it here:
