“You were born a child of light’s wonderful secret — you return to the beauty you have always been.”
Rebekah Higgs is an instrument all her own. At times happy, often haunting, her voice echoes and chimes like a xylophone French kissing a wa-wa pedal. 'Sha La La' is the reverberation of 6 new songs brought to life between January 2012 to September 2013 in Wakefield Quebec, Toronto Ontario, and Halifax Nova Scotia.
The opening track 'Loneliness' weeps from the pulpit while washing over your like a dissonant church choir. Steeped with ghosts of the past, 'Sha La La' draws from 60's girl groups, replacing Phil Spector orchestrations with vocal effects and distorted pedals kindred to the Cocteau Twins. Performed and Produced by Rebekah Higg and nourished by the hands of Geoffrey Pye, Joel Waddell, Jay Holy, and Jason Vautour. This is Rebekah's first release since 2011 Odd Fellowship. Her most intuitive and dreamy composition to date. A long hibernation ripening for birth.
