Track of the Day #120: Rachel Sermanni and Jo Mango – Bitter Fruit

Posted by Neil Wilson

Jo Mango & Friends - Wrack Lines
Two of Scotland’s most beautiful voices combining?  Joy of joys this is an absolute dream come true.  Jo Mango returns with a brand new EP worth of collaborations called Wrack Lines which will be released via Olive Grove Records on 15th January 2016.  The EP features partnerships with friends such as RM Hubbert, Louis Abbot from Admiral Fallow, and The Pictish Trail, as well as Rachel Sermanni who duets with Mango on this track Bitter Fruit.

Individually both singers voices are heart wrenching, but combined they mesh and intertwine into harmonies that weep with beauty.  Minimal acoustic guitar allows the songwriting of Jo Mango to take centre stage, her ability to wield a pen and craft melancholic images never to be understated.
