Finally a new chapter from Friends of Alice Ivy, darkwave two-piece, homebased in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia: We Are As Ghosts is a preview of their forthcoming LP The Golden Cage and its Mirrored Maze. They don't lose the path taken with In the Gloaming (2011, > review), and this single CD masterfully projects his shadow en pleine gr‚ce on a bucolic air, elegantly suspended over a neo-classical arrangement, richly emphasized by soave cello and celestial female vocals, that is Kylie. The b/w version goes simply ethereal and epic, blissfully mournful, in the way of standing in front a disarming beauty. Think Love Spirals Downwards, if you need a coordinate. As well as also Cranes' bside, Leave her to heavenII. Just waiting to grab their full length record.
