Ocean Of Night Fan Memory session 2015
From : Lemming
If Editors seem like they don't really have any grand plans, that they pursue their muse without a firm destination in mind, occasionally there's evidence that they harbor irresistible wishes which persist until their realisation. In November of 2009 EgoFM interviewed Tom and Russell, and Tom expressed a desire to work with a female vocalist, perhaps on a duet. 6 years later he did just that. Rachel Goswell joined Editors to record 3 songs on In Dream, Ocean of Night was one of them. It's not the first time that La Goswell had sung backing vocals outside of Slowdive and Mojave 3, having joined Chapterhouse on their 1991 single Pearl. This was, however, the first time that Editors had featured an outside singer. Given his turntable tendencies, I'd guess the opening piano on Ocean of Night came from Elliott, because it's very much like an Italian house riff from way back. Plus, I love how it all descends into percussion at the end, very reminiscent of There Goes the Fear by Doves.
