The A’s Share New Single “Wedding Dress”

The duo of Sylvan Esso’s Amelia Meath and Daughter of Swords’ Alexandra Sauser-Monnig share new single “Wedding Dress,” revealing a soft and subtle side of their forthcoming, debut album as The A’s. Out July 15th on Psychic Hotline,

While many of Fruit‘s ten tracks find the two longtime friends and Mountain Man collaborators yodeling alongside a makeshift orchestra of hair, nylon shorts, shoes, ice chunk, gravel, frog samples and other strangely percussive, unexpectedly melodic objects, “Wedding Dress” pairs a single guitar with Meath and Sauser-Monnig’s sublime harmonies. It’s a story sung by generations of Appalachians, as well as the legendary Peggy Seeger and her family, The A’s echo the song’s quiet contemplation as their voices rise and fall, evoking the candle-lit, North Carolinian setting where they recorded the LP as they stared deep into each other’s eyes. 

Listen to Fruit opener and lead single “He Needs Me,” a spectral reimagining of the Harry Nilsson-Shelley Duvall classic, which came with The A’s yodeling, a cappella arrangement of The DeZurik Sisters’ “Why I’m Grieving,” plus a mystical music video full of dancing flower-people and a long, joyous kiss:
