A string of intimately lavish dark duets offers a haunting brand of holiday caroling. Chanteuse Sue Hutton (of the beloved Canadian ensemble Rhea’s Obsession and presently of Indarra) and troubadour Athan Maroulis (presently of NOIR and formerly of Spahn Ranch, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, and Executive Slacks) collaborate on new Christmas material released in time to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their track “We Three Kings” which appeared on Projekt’s Excelsis Vol 2: A Winter’s Song way back in 1999.
The twentieth anniversary of that luxurious recording inspired Sue and Athan to recruit the talents of producer/instrumentalist Kevin Laliberté for three new dark holiday duets where touches of ethereal and world music merge with chants and flashes of the classic 4AD sound. Sue cut her sensual vocals in Toronto while Athan crooned his in New York City in the summer of 2019.
Featured songs include a lush take on the traditional “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” originally penned in the 18th century, a pair of renditions of the beloved 1940s “Carol of the Drum,” and their original 1999 exotica-flavored recording of “We Three Kings.”
Projekt releases Christmas Nocturne November 22nd via all streaming and digital outlets.
For those who feel their holiday music doesn’t offer enough moody atmosphere, Sue and Athan fill the void and please enthusiasts of Dead Can Dance, Enigma, TSO and Delerium.
