Out On ‘Poppy’ EP Out Now On SWAY Records
Limited Edition White 7″ Vinyl With Digital EP
Bernard + Edith are an experimental 1 + 1 = 2 girl boy duo hailing from Manchester’s Whalley Range. Intriguingly distinctive on the ear and the eye; Greta ‘Edith’ Caroll and synth addict Nick ‘Bernard’ Delap create brooding, dark soundscapes laced with beautiful, sultry vocals. Their sound cannot be pigeon holed; creating wonky, mind bending, electronic dream pop music.
With their Poppy EP now out on Manchester experimental label SWAYS, Bernard + Edith now share the video for EP cut ‘Spell On You‘, an eerily tranquil Kate Bush-echoing psych-blues loop, set to the visual backdrop of domestic pets, garden greenery and hovering statues.
