Projekt Releases Christmas EP from Indarra and NOIR vocalists

thumbnail-1

For Immediate Release:

The twentieth anniversary of their recording of “We Three Kings” for Projekt Records’ release “Excelsis Vol 2: A Winter’s Song,” inspired chanteuse Sue Hutton (of the beloved Canadian ensemble Rhea’s Obsession and presently of Indarra) and troubadour Athan Maroulis (presently of NOIR and formerly of Spahn Ranch, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, and Executive Slacks) to team up with producer and instrumentalist Kevin Laliberté, to collaborate on some new Christmas material. The collective results can be found on “Christmas Nocturne,” a series of duets that offer a unique haunting brand of caroling with touches of ethereal, dark wave and world music. Featured songs include a lush take on the traditional “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” originally penned in the 18th century, a pair of renditions of the beloved 1940s “Carol of the Drum,” and their original 1999 exotica-flavored recording of “We Three Kings.” Projekt has just released “Christmas Nocturne” via streaming and digital outlets along with a free download option on Bandcamp.
