Domino Girls by Patsy Matheson

now available to order on Amazon

New album 'Domino Girls' is released on Tomorrow Records (TRCD3) on 31st March 2014 and will be available on CD and download through all major outlets.  Her most ambitious work to date, 'Domino Girls' combines Patsy's trademark innovative song writing with intricate vocal harmonies, classic acoustic guitar and layers of sumptuous string arrangements.

 

Featuring contributions from Belinda O'Hooley (O Hooley & Tidow, Rachel Unthank & the Winterset, Nic Jones trio) - vocals, piano, accordion, Heidi Tidow (O'Hooley & Tidow) – vocals, Anna Esslemont (Uiscedwr, Bad Anna) – fiddle, Sarah Smout (Rosie Doonan & the Snapdragons, Michael Chapman) – cello, and her long time collaborator Jon Short (double bass), with Will Reddy (drums) and Richard Ferdinando (Crosscut Saw) drums, there are nine brand new Matheson compositions as well as 'Chasing Rainbows' – a song given to her by acclaimed songwriter Boo Hewerdine. The songs cover a range of subjects – from affairs of the heart to computer webcam hacking – each sensitively delivered and intricately layered up with her signature vocal harmonies and acoustic guitar.

"Domino Girls" Patsy Matheson at her best, an absolute humdinger of an album... this is one of those albums you can invest so much of your time into, because you know it's going to pay you back by the bucket load, and now there are richer arrangements and instrumentation to add another dimension over the top...whilst I've loved her fully solo albums, the way she's approached this one really does set it apart’ – Neil King, Fatea
