As per their own words, The Parlour Trick offers ‘haunted chamber music and dark, dreamy ambience composed, arranged and performed by multi-instrumentalists Meredith Yayanos and Dan Cantrell’. And we think that this is a really accurate description.
Co-founder and Editor In Chief of Coilhouse, Meredith Yayanos is a talented musician, writer and filmmaker. When we discovered that she was planning the launch of a chamber music album in collaboration with the Emmy-award winning composer for film and television Dan Cantrell, we could only think ‘hey, this looks great!’. The crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter was a absolute success and the rest is history.
Named after a well-loved quote by Martha Graham and inspired by some of the creepier and more dysfunctional aspects of Victoriana, the first full-length release of The Parlour Trick, entitled A Blessed Unrest, would be a perfect match for a séance with our Singular Talking Board and the corresponding Vigilat Planchette.
The proof is in (eating) the pudding… enjoy the gorgeous video of the piece ‘Half Sick of Shadows’:
