The beauty that is “Evelyn”, was released on the 27th of October in collaboration with Alister Douglas of Blush Response. On the 8th of December he published a newly polished, older song “The 8th day” featuring, Omega Vague’s Craig.
The Churchhill Garden is Andy Jossi, a one man project from Lucerne, Switzerland.
Andy grew up with and is influenced by alternative music in the late 80’s, early 90’s. He gradually became a big fan of shoegaze. He made several attempts at starting a band but decided he didn’t like playing live and that he couldn’t sing:
Andy:” I realised that nobody really wants to play with someone who doesn’t want to play live. So I decided to make a go of it on my own as I had pretty much all I needed to set up a home studio”. I bought a Guitar rig and started making my first recordings with Garage Band. I had never written a song before. I didn’t really how to proceed but I was really enjoying myself. So I started this little project: The Churchhill Garden.”
The project has turned out rather magnificently and Andy often works with guest vocalist like he did this time on “Evelyn” on “the 8th Day”.
Andy:” I just send them a message on Facebook; send them some music; they send back the vocals and I mix the lot. That’s the good thing about modern technique. This way, I have worked with a.o. Blush Response and Omega Vague. Alister and Craig were super friendly and a pleasure to work with!”
“Evelyn” is full dreamy layers of vocals, spiralling; echoy guitar riffs, slow strumming, and melting basslines. It’s like falling into a billowy canopy of bliss…….
“the 8th Day” is a shimmering track that steadily swirls skywards. Craig’s voice here has an 80’s ring to it that reminded me of the Adventures.
