In an era in which the magnitude of cultural sickness is coming to light, Henry Jamison has had some time to reflect. On his second record, Gloria Duplex, the Vermont songwriter deconstructs ideas of masculinity from boyhood to adulthood and what it means to be a white, middle class male in America today.
Recorded over a two-week period in New York City during January 2018, Gloria Duplex features an all-star cast including producer Thomas Bartlett (Sufjan Stevens, The National, St. Vincent,) string arranger Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, Phoebe Bridgers) and mixer Patrick Dillett (Rhye, David Byrne, Glen Hansard).
Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the creation of Morgan Macintyre and Gemma Doherty. The duo met while studying at Trinity College, Dublin and shortly after graduating they started making music together. A month after forming they were asked to perform on TG4 (Irish national TV), and opened Whelan’s for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler.
2018 saw the release of the band’s debut album Shape of Silence on October 5. The first single “Twin Peaks” premiered on Billboard Magazine and has been since championed by Huw Stephens at BBC radio 1 as well as Double and Triple J. Second single “You Never Call” has also received continued support from key media and press.
