Tracyanne Campbell and Danny Coughlan aren’t necessarily household names, unless your household is well versed in elegant European pop music. Campbell is better known for her prominent role in Scottish indie-pop band Camera Obscura, while Coughlan, a Brit, records soulful ballads under the name Crybaby. Together, they make beautiful music that reflects both their main projects, and their debut album as a duo—simply titled Tracyanne & Danny—was one of 2018’s loveliest listens. Smooth, patient, and endlessly tuneful, it’s a must-hear document of what can happen when two skilled and experienced songwriters fit together seamlessly.
