Dear Time's Waste represents the ongoing sonic ruminations and verbose brown studies of Aucklander Claire Duncan.
Steeped in the gothic permanence of early Cure and the cloud-skipping gaze of Garlands era-Cocteau Twins, Some Kind Of Eden works in a playful orbit, dancing between the lightness and weight of experience with cold purpose and red desperation.
Recorded in isolation by Duncan between a cramped Eden Terrace flat and an expansive vacant studio space, the record follows on from 2010's LP Spells with a formidable sense of exactitude, a concrete precision echoed by the stringent monotony of electronic beats and pulsating textures in conversation with a malleable voice that surges and pulls with the demands of every instant.
A live show comprised of Duncan and compatriots allows the project a three-dimensional intensity, having been broken in by previous performances in support of such alt nobility as St. Vincent, Low and Deerhunter.
