TIDAL MOUTH: a site where very different waters merge and become difficult to distinguish. TIDAL MOUTH is an ongoing conversation between Rachael Cardiello and Daccia Bloomfield. Daccia writes the words, Rachael writes the music. The division of labour is strict and absolute. Our first song cycle, DEAD DAD'S CLUB, results from talking about losing our fathers. Our early friendship was obsessed with this theme, and with its constituent parts: pain, illness (mental and physical), caregiving, family and father-daughter myths.
