Peter Ulrich / Erin Hill ‘Dark Daddy’

Peter Ulrich, percussionist from Dead Can Dance has collaborated with harpest / singer Erin Hill for quite an ethereal enchanting  kind of dark folk ballad. The harp and pedal steel touches are nice and sweet, but it’s all a bit too straight and predictable. Hill’s voice, is rich and sumptuous but rather than touching somewhere else, it feels like to the book dark folk story and the kind of thing you’d get in a historical drama short on TV. Looking down the press release I see she’s written music for Game of Thrones, pretty impressive. Just this track trundles along, lacking a bit of soul or something to make it stand out, engage further.
