Released:
Label: Secretly Canadian
There's a power in perpetual fragility, a strength required to remain poised on the brink of breaking. This precarious point is where Antony and the Johnsons position their almost broken sound, harnessing the tension of that "almost." Even in the moments where Antony's mournful voice palpitates over buoyant soul horns (the rollicking "Thank You for Your Love") or sounds almost jubilant (the lilting "Salt Silver Oxygen"), Swanlight is marked by a gritty delicateness, as if they're just barely holding on with every muscle. "Fletta," a duet with Bjork, will exquisitely break your heart.
