Rachel Zeffira-Break The Spell.


You know how some people throw words around and they just lose meaning? When someone says someone is “beautiful” or if something is “perfect” it all loses its meaning after a while. These are two words that should be used very carefully and not often. Of course you can see beauty in most things, and some may say perfection doesn’t exist. Maybe it doesn’t, maybe it does. It is all a personal view. It’s like my view on time. I hate knowing the time. I think watches are awful. I hate being rushed; yet I seem to be early for most things. I like to wander. Usually when I shouldn’t. I also have a habit of going off track. Much like how I just have.

So today has been a bit shit (most days are when you live where I do) and it was improved a bit by hearing Rachel Zeffira’s new song. It was also improved by a massive nap and a person. I just love sleeping; mainly because I’m not bothering anyone.

Rachel’s voice is pure and wonderful. Her solo work (pre-Cat’s Eyes) and her work in Cat’s Eyes is just remarkable. Rachel and Faris have set up their own label, RAF Records which will be putting out Rachel’s debut record The Deserters on 10th December. If anyone wants to buy me a copy, I’ll be forever grateful.

Break The Spell keeps with the 60s girl group vibe that caused anyone to fall in love with Cat’s Eyes. Yes it is perfect, and yes it is beautiful.

Rachel Zeffira.

Whatever I say about Rachel Zeffira’s voice does not do it justice. Personally, if someone cannot hear how stunning her voice is-then they’re just daft. She posses a voice most wish they could. It is so delicate and angelic. Her voice is like hearing an Angel sing.

Seeing how she has such a gentle voice, it’d be silly for her to sing a song by a band such as, say….My Bloody Valentine, right? I mean how can someone with such a pure voice take on a song by a band that have quite a raw and dark sound. Well, she’s done it. Rachel has covered one of my favourite songs by My Bloody Valentine, To Here Knows When as part of her solo project which is soon to be released.

Who thought a Soprano trained singer could take on a song by My Bloody Valentine. As most of you know, she is in Cat’s Eyes with Faris Badwan from The Horrors. The music Cat’s Eyes make is just wonderful. Think 60s girl group/Wall of Sound. It’s just perfect.

Rachel Zeffira has one of the most angelic voices I have ever heard. I’m not a massive fan of Opera, but I could quite happily listen to her music all day.

She has a voice that makes you smile from the inside out. It’s just so beautiful, she leaves you in sheer awe.
