Biddy Connor is the string wizard behind artists and bands such as Laura Jean, Kes Band, Super Melody and Magic Silver White.

In her new project Sailor Days, she finally reveals her own compositions. Serpentine, dizzying and rich, Biddy’s songs play gracefully with harmony, melody and structure, creating strange and beautiful architecture.

Completing the magic triangle to Biddy’s viola, voice and organ are Laura Jean Englert (Laura Jean, Kes Band) on bass and Jen Sholakis (Laura Jean, Jen Cloher and The Endless Sea) on drums and bells.

On their self-titled debut album, strings pluck and hum. Voices call, respond and harmonise. Organs creak and bassoons murmur doubtfully while a viola becomes a ship to sail upon. The album is reminiscent of Deerhoof in a reflective mood or Kate Bush minus the histrionics, but ultimately sounds like itself.
