Tasseomancy is the art of fortune telling by interpreting patterns in tea leaves. The twin sisters Sari and Romy Lightman‘s great great grandmother, who was also on the cover of their depute album “Tasseomancy” they released under the name Ghost Bees, was a tea leaf reader. The sisters apparently liked the name of their first album so much, that they decided to name themselves after it. Their new project is a continuation of what they did as Ghost Bees combined “with heavier, ambient sounds, influenced by death ritual, hebraic song, war drums, ancestry and myth”, as they quote. Timber Timbre‘s Taylor Kirk and Simon Trottier co-produced their new album “Ulalume“, which is coming up soon.”Healthy Hands” is the first single and it reminds me a bit of the early Velvet Underground and the Cocteau Twins. It looks like there is a new more underground trend to make gothic, dark, spooky music and I am pretty happy about it! Tasseomancy are touring at the moment with Austra, so do not miss them, if they are playing somewhere near you.
