Deep Throat Choir share “Ada”

Ahead of the release of their debut album, Deep Throat Choir are pleased to share with you the new track “Ada”, originally recorded by choir leader Lusia Gerstein’s band Landshapes. The song, premiered yesterday by Beat Magazine, is available for you to listen to now below…

Last month Deep Throat Choir also released a video – featuring all members of the female collective – for the title track of their album “Be OK”. Watch it HERE now.

Deep Throat Choir is an all-female singing collective formed in 2013 by Luisa Gerstein. Having played in the bands Landshapes and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, the project was driven by the simple desire to bring music making back to a few basic elements: just voices and drums. Not for the love of choirs per se, but for the love of raw female voices thrown together, of the interplay of intricate vocal melodies and harmonies; Luisa wanted to sing and arrange the music she loved, and to hear it stripped and bolstered in that specific way that lots of voices can do. A melody sung by one voice is so different to a melody sung by many, and the same goes for words; the sentiment is altogether transformed when carried by a collective as opposed to an individual. This is exemplified perfectly in the line “show me emotional respect” from the choir’s arrangement of Bjork’s Stonemilker.  It is not just one woman’s plea, but an anthem for all.

Be OK will be released 17th February 2017 on Bella Union. Album below:
