Snowbird, the collaborative effort between English musician and producer Simon Raymonde, former Cocteau Twins member and head of the Bella Union label (Fleet Foxes, Beach House) and American singer Stephanie Dosen, has just unveiled the video for track All Wishes Are Ghosts, from their debut album Moon.
The adventure video follows a couple mountain hiking in the snowy alps, paralleling the unfolding drama of ghosts hiking the same trail in a bygone era. The clip itself is shrouded in an ethereal mystery, perfectly complimenting Dosen’s romantic vocals and Raymonde’s baroque-influenced string production.
Moon is the debut release from the pair who came together in 2006 and features contributions from members of Radiohead, Lanterns on the Lake and Midlake. It’s also Raymonde’s first recorded output since his solo album that followed Cocteau Twins’ split in 1997.
