This Mortal Coil was a gothic dream pop collective led by Ivo Watts-Russell, founder of the British record label 4AD. Although Watts-Russell and John Fryer were technically the only two official members, the band's recorded output featured a large rotating cast of supporting artists, many of whom were signed to, or otherwise associated with, 4AD. About half of the songs released were cover versions, often of 1960s and 1970s psychedelic and folk acts. On each of the band's three LPs, at least one song would also be a cover of a 4AD artist, and most of the original songs were instrumentals.

  • This Mortal Coil fue un proyecto musical de post punk liderado por Ivo Watts-Russell, fundador del sello británico 4AD. La iniciativa reunió a artistas clave de 4AD y otros músicos no pertenecientes al sello bajo el mismo paraguas. Dos temas del primer disco, It'll End In Tears, destacan la voz de Elizabeth Fraser del grupo Cocteau Twins, también de 4AD. La más conocida de estas canciones es el cover etéreo de Song to the Siren de Tim Buckley, que provocó un renovado interés en Buckley cuando sus álbumes no eran ampliamente accesibles.
