Haunting, fragile, beautiful. All words that come to mind when listening to this new track. Pitchfork gave this 7″ single the title of ‘Best New Track’ just a week ago. If you’re not familiar with Julianna Barwick just know she was actually commissioned to remix Radiohead’s ‘Reckoner!’ She’s worked with some pretty influential musicians and gained praise for her own works over time. As is the common case with Suicide Squeeze… the 7″ copies go real fast. Snag a copy!

โ€œHer ethereal multi-tracked harmonies have the devotional quality of gospel choirs, and the oddball allure of Bjork or Yoko Onoโ€ – New York Times

The Details

Limited to 750 copies! On March 5, Julianna Barwick returns with two new haunting compositions for a 7" single on Suicide Squeeze Records. "Pacing" features Barwick's voice and layered harmonies, "but it's a bit of a diversion from the vocal loop-based songs I tend to make" says Barwick. "I absolutely love the piano. I wish I could play it better. For the cover, I chose my friend Peter Coffin's photograph of a piece he did based on the Newton color scale that corresponds perfectly to the musical scale. I absolutely love the image and it corresponds well with the piano pieces on the single." The b-side, "Call," is a frail and passionate solo piano piece. Limited to 750 (250 opaque red, 500 black) copies worldwide.

Includes a coupon for a free digital download of the single in MP3 format.

**PRE-ORDER** will ship on or around February 25, 2013
