On March 6, Brooklyn’s Kodacrome will release The Banff Sessions. The five-song EP finds vocalist Elissa LeCoque and keyboardist Ryan Casey expanding on their analog-synth-based sound by adding orchestral instruments to the mix. “Tender Exit” proves how hauntingly powerful this combination can be.
“Kodacrome had just received a grant to record a piano-redux EP at the Banff Centre in Canada,” says LeCoque. “We engineered a kernel of [‘Tender Exit’] in a sort of sketch format on just piano and upright bass while we were there, and later returned to NYC to arrange and layer in strings and clarinet. The finished song features grand piano, cello, viola, violin, bass clarinet and subtle analog synth pads.”
We’re proud to premiere the gorgeous, black-and-white, Alexander Christenson-directed video for “Tender Exit” today on magnetmagazine.com. Check it out now.
