Last month we announced Leeds-based duo Hawthonn’s first album for Ba Da Bing, Red Goddess (Of This Men Shall Know Nothing) and premiered their first single “Eden” at The Quietus. Today we’re back to share “Lady of the Flood,” a sprawling gem that NPR calls “a lunar tide cresting in slow motion to a prophecy writ from Graeco-Egyptian mythology.” It may contain a dissertation’s worth of subject matter, but “Lady of the Flood” functions as engrossing folk horror, drone and found sound whether you’re thinking on it or not. It’s a landscape in eleven minutes, and an excellent harbinger of what Red Goddess has in store.
