The Horrors' Faris Badwan sets up record label with Cat's Eyes partner Rachel Zeffira
The Horrors frontman Faris Badwan and his Cat's Eyes collaborator Rachel Zeffira have announced that they are setting up their own record label.

RAF Recordings' first release will be Zeffira's solo debut LP 'The Deserters', which will be released on December 10.

'The Deserters' was written and produced entirely by the Canadian multi-instrumentalist and features an all-star east London cast including krautrockers Toy and SCUM’s drummer Mel Rigby. You can listen to the first track to be taken from the album, 'Break the Spell', below.

Speaking NME, abut the album Zeffira said: "I wanted to stay true to myself. It's my own album. I'm producing it. And I wanted it to be my own stuff... I just wanted this to be my own honest thing".

She added: "I guess the closest artist I can reference is Nick Drake. Something like 'River Man'. I've always really admired those string arrangements."

Rachel Zeffira will play her debut solo show at St Andrew Church, Holborn on October 18.
