Spires That In The Sunset Rise


Listen to Before Dawn

Spires That in the Sunset Rise have been unsettling and thrilling audiences for over a decade now with their brand of sonic alchemy. Combining traditional acoustic instruments like cello, spike fiddle and banjo with electric elements and mesmerizing chants, one can call them goth, folk, psychedelic, experimental, electronic--and it all applies. Four full length releases on labels like Secret Eye and Galactic Zoo Disk and well-received world tours have earned them comparisons to such artists as Current 93, Harry Partch, Comus, Yoko Ono and The Residents. The group is now paired down to long time members Kathleen Baird and Taralie Peterson.
