The Riches project is the soundtrack to an imaginary folk horror film about the cult of the Creative Entity. Each song is a scene detailing one aspect of its devotional life.
Our new single, “Shadow of You,” represents the scene of a slow motion, psychedelic maypole ritual celebrating the entity/demon Creation.
It loops, warps, drags and reverses beauty and danger round and round.
It serenades the thrall of the gorgeous, intoxicating and potentially self-destructive compulsion of making art.
| With “Shadow of You,” we were after a swoony longing with a touch of fear.|
It is sung from a particularly fragile part of Catherine‘s vocal range to bring vulnerability to the exalted state of the ever turning/unending ritual and it is pitched to alter, confuse and soothe – like looking directly into the sun.
Thank you for listening,
Catherine McCandless and Wynn Holmes of Riches
