Tara Clerkin is werkin for me

Tara Clerkin hails from Bristol, a rocky outcrop on the furthermost western reaches of the British Isles, where the sun rises at night and the moon rules the day, a merciless and cruel emperor. The inhabitants forage the grey shores for seaweed, whelks and fragments of sound and spend the evenings in brightly-coloured houses weaving them together into unlikely tonal patterns. Tara is one of their foremost artists and is considered a high-priestess by a number of local sects. Her latest artefact is called Zadar and is a strangely soothing and hypnotic brew that sucks you in and never lets you go. The ancient film that accompanies the work is purported to be of the fearsome light dragons that terrorise small towns and villages along the coast. Stunning. And Scary.

Zadar is taken from Tara’s debut album ‘Hello’ – it’s out now on Stolen Body Records and Howling Owl Records (sounds like the dragons have been at work).
