Their latest singles,”Reducer” and “Olympia”, are pillowy-pop delights that sees the band shed their folk roots for something far more expansive and brooding. Alison Thom soars above dark and brooding musical foundations, her beguiling vocals, coupled with the bands electronic, trip-pop undertones captivates in the same vein as London Grammar and The XX.
These singles showcase a more unified, cohesive sound, and are the first taste from the bands forthcoming EP ‘Not Here’, their most fully-realised and ambitious release to date. This more direct, dreamy sound is the result of lush, immersive vocals, propulsive guitars and trip-hop inspired beats. As Alison explains, writing and recording this EP was a process of “trying to understand what is happening in my head”.
To harness the tracks otherworldly pop elements the band engaged super producer JP Fung (AViVA, Lime Cordiale, MANE), alongside producer Tyson Fish (Children Collide, Vance Joy).
