Threads marks a first dip into the archives of unreleased recordings by The Strange Girls, the cult Dunedin duo of Kaaterama “Motty” Morehu and Clayton Noone that existed off and on from the early ‘00s up until Motty’s untimely passing in 2020.

At their best, The Strange Girls made ruminative, repetitive and atmospheric bummer folk, similar to sounds by Flying Canyon or The Pupils combined with The Dead C squall. All of these elements are present on Threads, which rescues stray, unreleased tracks made around the time of their best album, Beset. Motty’s beautiful, fragile croon guides through a thicket of hiss, solemn strums and stirring feedback.

Threads wasn’t intended to be the lone archival release, but with Motty’s passing it may be the final word from The Strange Girls. Time will tell. Rest in Peace, Motty.
