What has resulted is rather breathtaking, with the twosome just releasing their debut track "Stella." A cover of Melbourne artist Bertie Blackman's track of the same name, the vocals were recorded in Nashville with Shiel piecing the orchestration together during Gotye's European tour late last year. This is a truly awesome piece of music, the somber but soulful lyrics are aided by the beautifully arranged musical landscape, with icy tones developing into stunning string choruses. It's one of those tracks you can't bring yourself to stop listening to, even if you've played it over and over (like I have!).
"Stella" is available as a free download on Telling's SoundCloud. Snap it up quickly.
