Ostia recorded with TransCom for the Abstraction compilation back in the 90’s and have remained a force of ethereal loveliness ever since. Amps and Kylie – the core of Ostia have more recently recorded as Friends of Alice Ivy, including their recent reworking of The Isle’s most recent single La femme Exotique – available now on iTunes. Anyway important ‘Ivy news ahead… be sure to register with them.
A new EP by Ostia side-project “Friends of Alice Ivy” is due to be released on 15th August 2011. The new CD, titled “In the Gloaming” is Friends of Alice Ivy’s first new work since “Hereafter Moth” was released in September 2008. The new EP builds on the ethereal beauty of its predecessor, with a heavier focus on harps, strings and atmosphere.
“In the Gloaming” features contributions from Suspiria’s Mark Tansley, Roberto Massaglia from The Victim’s Ball, and Ostia guitarist Justin Bartlett.
A free download single, “The Summerland Meadows” is available from Friends of Alice Ivy’s website at http://www.friendsofaliceivy.com; we also hope to announce details of a very special EP launch show soon! The new EP can also be pre-ordered via the website.
Friends of Alice Ivy would love to know what you think of their new work, and can be contacted via hereaftermoth.
Our very best wishes to you!
Kylie & Amps
