One of the most remarkable folk-rock albums of the past decade arrives in a brand new edition exclusively on gold vinyl.


Fresh from touring in the UK and Europe with acts including Robyn Hitchcock and Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, London-based singer-songwriter Emma Tricca releases a new edition of her stunning 2018 album St Peter, accompanied by a limited edition postcard.

Praised on first release as a 'wonderfully romantic piece of folk-pop' (The Times), possessing 'a startling and sublime new sound' (The Quietus, 5 stars), St Peter features guest appearances from folk legend Judy Collins alongside indie icons Howe Gelb, Jason Victor and Steve Shelley.

“A startling and sublime new sound” -The Quietus *****
“This adventurous songwriter moves beyond folk” - Mojo ****
“Tricca’s easy grace is all her own” - Uncut ****
“Colossal” -Shindig! ****
“An Album of ethereal allure” -PROG Magazine ****
Heavy with atmosphere and beauty” -The Guardian Best Of 2018 ****
“The Velvets meets Fairport in folk-rock heaven” -Record Collector ****




The album is one so loaded with texture that is almost feels tangible, a rare record that feels precise and pristine in its executions but never sterile or lifeless. Electric guitars fizz away like a controlled electricity, Tricca’s guitar playing flows gracefully at the core with her vocals existing in the perfect state between slight rasp and caramel-smoothness. Shelley’s drumming and percussion gives a steady heartbeat to the record which is further brought to life by a variety of deft instrumentation, including piano, bass, cello, violin, glockenspiel and of course the variety of guest backing vocalists.

Whilst St Peter’s deep-seated roots can perhaps be traced to traditional folk music, its finished existence feels far from such a thing - its ever-flowing essence skipping through genres, tones, paces and rhythms with a gliding grace. Perhaps even a touch of the spirit of Hoboken’s own Yo La Tengo has seeped into the finish record in its quiet yet stirring beauty.
