RACHAEL DADD / ICHI Split 7" - 'Make A Sentence' / 'Go Gagambo' Released on 14th April 2014
This split 7" single is Rachael and ICHI's first joint release, a milestone in their musical relationship and a taster of what's in store from them as individuals.
"ICHI's song 'Go Gagambo' opens with a universally recognisable mosquito hum, then proceeds with a catchy, familiar-sounding bass line, strummed out on a long, thin insect-like instrument (home-made), while the vocals are punk-like, small and high-pitched, in the language of the insect itself. It's a song about mistaken identity - (gagambo is an insect unfortunate enough to be mistaken as a big mosquito, resulting in probable death by angry clapping hands), and it is a clever blend of the familiar and the bizarre. ICHI`s simple concepts and playful presentation have universal appeal. When you can't speak the lingo there are many other tools for communication, best of all music itself"
