Pronounced Vusstanya, Bocctahne were a three piece on David Khan’s kRkRkRk label who existed between 1999 and late 2000, comprised of Khan, Megan Gallacher and Ed Wilson.
Emphasizing group dynamics & spontaneity, the trio combined lush, abstract vocal harmonies with a traditional blend of bass, guitar & piano-organ sounds.
The resulting music had some song/lyric features – but, in general, Bocctahne were happy to relax the more stringent requirements of songwriting in order to maximize space & atmosphere.
Mesmerizing & repetitive, their simple & melodic arrangements were more songlike sketches than songs proper – delicate, ephemeral & tantalizingly unresolved.
