Deux Filles - Shadow Farming

GLASS MODERN

  • £18.99


In 1982-83, Deux Filles appeared to be a pair of young French girls Claudine Coule and Gemini Forque, brought together by tragic circumstances to make a heady, pastoral avant-garde post-punk woven with sampled dialogue and occasionally their own vocals. The music utterly enchanting; a sublimely realised take on Eno-esque ambient, Gallic pop and European style progressive rock.

In truth it was former child actor, fledgling teenage pop idol and soon to be film soundtrack composer Simon Fisher Turner, and Colin Lloyd Tucker, both members of an early incarnation of The The, who have now returned to their Deux Filles personas  with two beautiful side-long suites ‘Intuition’ & ‘Sweet Animal Suite’
