The pop equivalent of a gothic cathedral, ‘God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlefolk’ is part of a new Christmas EP available from gamine.bandcamp.com
The original footage for the song’s video was from a concert at the legendary 12-Bar Club in London’s Denmark Street (also known as Tin Pan Alley). It was intimate (small) and atmospheric (noisy) and the band loved to play there.
As Gamine, Ian Williams and Claudia Barton issued two albums of dark, piano-led torch songs and lullabies. Williams has gone on to work on TV and film soundtrack music and has released three albums since 2019 that have included the score to French documentary ‘Les Blessures Invisibles’ (Invisible Wounds) and the ambient ‘All Becomes Desert’. Barton released the solo album ‘The Wrath Of Love’ in 2020.
