Twin Bed EP is the first solo Claire Rousay material to come after a softer focus, showcasing additional vignettes featuring the artist’s dense collection of field recordings and her recent, more melodic work. On the stirring, evocative title track, Rousay’s piano playing is at the forefront, slowly making way for guitar and lush, synthesized atmospheric. Behind this, kids run through, domestic tasks get performed, people communicate, objects resonate. Then strings and keys come in, as does Rousay’s soft, close vocals, effectively creating a confidante in the listener.
The ensuing three songs are recordings from 2020, one short, sweet instrumental inspired by a far-away friendship titled “You Sent Me Kink In The Mail,” and two expressive, personal non-melodic pieces titled “Trip 1” and “Trip 2" that call to mind Rousay's earlier work.

Such a wonderful piece of art ! Powerful and melancholic, intriguing and fascinating, subtile and incredibly well crafted.
Kali Malone is definitely one the most interesting and talented Composer of these last years, and I have the feeling that we have a lot more to discover from her.
A year ago I had the chance to see her live for living torch, and it was a moment I will never forget.
Thank you Kali ! ♫
