You may remember US singer-songwriter Coury Palermo as one half of American recording outfit Paige & Palermo – Paige being Jennifer of Crush fame – who released some very good music together last year.
Coury has now launched a brand new collaborative project with writer and producer Philip Zach and the duo have just kicked off 2014 with the release of their first promotional track Rumor, a precursor of what to expect from their upcoming trilogy of EPs.
The first, rebel, will arrive on 27 January. I’ve been lucky enough to receive a sneak preview, and you can expect a wonderfully intoxicating blend of subtle electronica and percussion, beautifully-penned heartfelt lyrics and sumptuous vocals.
Rumor, a gently stirring, duet steeped in melancholy and driven along by a stripped back guitar accompaniment, will appear on their second set lover (due 31 March) with the final chapter to the three part collection liar arriving on 19 May.
The promotional period will be capped off with the launch of the full set rebelloverliar in both digital and physical formats on 30 June but right now you can download Rumor for FREE via A Thousand Fires’ official Soundcloud page.
