Official press release:
Sargent House alum Emma Ruth Rundle (Red Sparowes, Marriages) and the label’s newest addition, Louisville’s Jaye Jayle (featuring Evan Patterson of Young Widows) are thrilled to announce a new split EP titled The Time Between Us. The album boasts three previously unreleased tracks from each artist and will be available February 24th, 2017. Today, Emma Ruth Rundle has premiered her single “The Distance” – listen now via CLRVYNT.
On the heels of her recently released and widely recognized third album, Marked For Death, Emma Ruth Rundle contributes a follow-up dose of brooding, melancholic rock draped in shimmering guitar and the breathy familiarity of her unmistakable voice to The Time Between Us. In addition to two never-before-heard tracks (“The Distance” and “To Fold In England [Hours]”), Rundle closes her side of the split with the original acoustic version of “Hand Of God”, a standout track from Marked For Death.
Side B of The Time Between Us features three new songs from Louisville, KY’s Jaye Jayle (Evan Patterson of Young Widows). The band possesses a distinct Southern filter, though Jaye Jayle’s stripped-back noir in fact owes more to Krautrock than the blues, and arrives at a sound wholly unusual in the American underground. The Time Between Us follows Jay Jayle’s debut House Cricks and Other Excuses to Get Out (October 2016) and his three songs continue to be an exercise in tension and restraint, a tightrope act between singer-songwriter traditions and art rock experimentation, and an intersection of Southern cultural permutations and otherworldly sounds.
Both Emma Ruth Rundle and Jaye Jayle will tour extensively throughout Spring of 2017 in support of The Time Between Us; Rundle is set to support Deafheaven and This Will Destroy You in February and March, while Jaye Jayle will be out with Oathbreaker in March and April. Shortly after, Emma Ruth Rundle and Jaye Jayle will team up for a European tour together slotted around Roadburn Festival in The Netherlands.
