Influenced by dream-pop, moody soundtracks and spoken-word, her sound has been described as a “music born of perennial outsider-status.”
Noted by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Giant Sand) for her voice, Khouri was invited to sing on a track on his Screenplay LP and subsequently recorded her forthcoming album with the producer in his hometown of Bristol. The resulting album is a haunting collection of poetic & atmospheric meditations on loss and transformation.
Khouri’s singular voice soars above droning organ, pulsating shakers, and an occasional choir of male voices, creating a self-contained world, reminiscent of Stina Nordenstam & Hope Sandoval in their heyday. Pumping harmoniums meld into reverb-drenched electric guitar, while Khouri’s languid voice offers a dream-like incantation set against a beating Moroccan tar on ‘Broken Star’. An esoteric thread runs throughout the album, notably on ‘Shake it like a Shaman’ (a tribute to the late Jeff Buckley).
The album also features guest contributions from Parish, Irish singer-songwriter Adrian Crowley, violinist Emma Smith (James Yorkston, Hot Chip) and others.
