Ubu (triple j Like A Version)
Californian Carpark Concrete
On her self-titled debut EP, Sydney artist Annie Hamilton navigates memory, perception and nostalgia through cascading, ethereal vocals and sprawling instrumentation.
Written during an isolated residency in northern Iceland, back at home in Sydney and in various hotel rooms and planes in between, the six tracks meander through quiet moments that left their mark, conjuring images of both intimacy and mundanity like pieces of a puzzle. Following the release of standalone singles Kitchen, Panic and My New Tattooed Chameleon, the body of work is a testament to Hamilton’s astute, direct storytelling and her ability to combine vulnerability with a versatile sound that oscillates between hushed contemplation and explosive, cinematic soundscapes. Hamilton's music has garnered praise from triple j, FBi Radio, RUSSH and LNWY, leading to Australia-wide tours in support of Julia Jacklin, Jack River, Phantastic Ferniture and more.
In addition to her solo project, Hamilton runs her own fashion label, plays guitar in Jack River’s live band and was formerly lead guitarist in Sydney outfit Little May.
