about

Paramour is a flaming comet, devastating and mature, confident and proud. This is what happens when you live to feel the power of life and that you have no choice but contain that force through the structures of a song. Paramour clocks in at just over 30 minutes – nothing extraneous, not a word, note or texture wasted, the very definition of poetry. This is a song-cycle with a loose narrative thread- a piece of sonic cinema with beginning, middle and end: life, love, loss, redemption, no redemption. Band of Holy Joy on this outing sound like the crew of the Flying Dutchman after being permanently marooned in a lost New York.
