Debut album for Rough Trade Records from UK folk duo Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker.
'Overnight' is the follow-up to the British duo's EP 'Through The Clouds,' released earlier this year on Rough Trade and described by Stereogum as "magnificent." The release is the British duo's most ambitious to date, focusing on Clarke's extraordinary voice and lyrics and Walker's prodigious guitar-playing and arranging.
The twelve songs – ten originals and two covers - were self-produced and recorded almost entirely live at Rockfield Studios in Wales, and serve as a snapshot of the endless cycle of night into day and back again.
Of "The Waning Crescent," Clarke explains: "It serves almost as an answer ballad to the classic "Blue Moon." Now it may sound unusually light-hearted for us but it comes at the darkest and stillest point in the album. The song – like the moon – brings a reassuring lightness."
