In late spring of 2011, Liam Howe (Marina & the Diamonds, Emiliana Torrini, Sneaker Pimps) captured a new set of string-laden recordings by Catherine AD and her all female string section. Recorded live in a single day at the legendary Church Studios in London’s Crouch End (once owned by the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart and birthplace of 'Sweet Dreams'), Communion is a collection of songs stripped of drums and modern technology.
As well as a reference to the former sacred function of the studio space, Communion takes its name from the idea of “sharing something between a group of musicians” and the numerous churches that Catherine and her strings had been playing in the run-up to the recording. Mastered by Jon Astley (Tori Amos, Emmylou Harris) and engineered by Rich Wilkinson (Magic Numbers), these are songs that are haunted by a heavy heart and that voice, which has been described by Metro as "like a lake of black honey" (METRO) and as "gorgeous. sick. beautiful" by Courtney Love.
