Morc Records / Belgium / 2022
Mutual admirers of each other’s work, these titans of Scottish and French dronefolk team up for a split lp – 2 tracks by Pefkin, 3 by Roxane. The fact that these like-minded artists explore the boundaries of what connects them, makes it a very exciting release. The Pefkin side is Gayle at her most melodic, whereas Roxane goes down a poetic and rhythmical path. Dream combo.
-- About Pefkin
Pefkin is the alter ego of Gayle Brogan, Ayrshire-based creator of slowly-unfolding, ritualistic hymnals that draw heavily on the landscape and natural world. Gayle has been a key figure in the experimental music scene since the mid nineties. The past 10 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to release three of her albums on morc – on those last couple of records, she proves she’s the rare kind of artist that actually still gets better and better, decades far in her career. A true force of nature.
-- About Roxane Métayer
Born in France and currently residing in Brussels, Roxane Métayer is truly a multidisciplinary artist. Learning the violin at a young age, she also developed herself as a visual artist, creating drawings, sculptures in uncommon materials as soap, and in recent years video. Her work as a musician is of an equally spontaneous nature.
She debuted in 2021 on morc with the lp ‘Éclipse des ocelles’, to overwhelming positive response, and a series of live-shows in which she easily met all expectations.
