Comet Gain album news

December 21, 2014


We’re very excited to say A Little Orchestra feature on Paperback Ghosts, the latest album from Comet Gain, released on Fortuna POP! records. We play violin and cello on four songs on the record.

The album was recorded at Soup Studios with producer Simon Trought at the helm, and was inspired by the psycho-geography of walks in North London woods and the forgotten grey hinterland of the city’s back streets. Paperback Ghosts is the seventh album from Comet Gain, and comes soaked in autumn melancholy. Tender-hearted but not miserable, defiant but not angry, it maintains the delicate balance that has always been Comet Gain’s strength.

To buy the album, visit the Fortuna POP! website.
