£8.00 was

PicaPica first appeared on the scene with their debut EP ‘Spring & Shade’ back in 2016 and are now returning with new 12" featuring delicate yet empowering new track 'Cast in Stone'. It also features two remixes from Seb Rochford – best known for drumming with the legendary Patti Smith – who has also performed on PicaPica’s upcoming debut album.

PicaPica features the vocal interplay of Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates, dual front women who create powerful harmonies atop layers of texture created by Adam Beattie & Sonny Johns, a tiding of magpies picking shiny moments of tone and timbre from 60s west coast, sunshine pop and indie folk. Josienne and Samantha met on the London acoustic music scene several years ago and immediately shared a love of singing and writing. They have been unofficially collaborating for years, often singing backing vocals for each other’s projects or just singing harmonies together for the pure enjoyment of it. The other half of PicaPica aka Adam Beattie, Scotland's king of soft-spoken chanson, brings gently morphing textures and detailed guitar playing to every bar, while Sonny Johns - a Grammy, Mercury and MOBO-nominated producer/engineer. Sonny’s bass playing and production give PicaPica's otherworldly compositions a seriously grounded sound.

Release Date: 15th February 2018
