Titled "Afterglow", the new album comes as a collection of chillout electronic songs with one main theme, and that is offering a deep musical relaxation.
"Last year I hit a bit of a creative wall where I was struggling to find inspiration and fresh ideas. There are some palm trees at the bottom of my garden that I see everyday, so I sat in my studio space one morning and decided to just start composing a track about the palm trees. Calm Palm is the result, and a purple patch of creativity followed suit. Michael Donoghue
The songs included on this album are all tracks that wrestle with my own feelings of inadequacy, despair and coming to grips with who I am, even if that is not desirable at a social level." - DAMIEN
"Purple" might become your favorite color after listening to this track. With a chilled landscape and reverberating guitars, this track is perfectly suited for a long-ride or an inner-experience while meditating. It has both electronic sounds as well as analog, a mix of wobbling synths with real instruments.
"“Rise Up” is top-notch and sits proudly as a very good example of electronic music that has been produced by someone who understands their craft. This probably comes down to Little and Poulton’s longevity in the Australian music scene but listening to “Rise Up” feels so satisfying with its homage to nostalgia and its ability to take electronic and organic elements to create a track that feels fresh."
The whole song is centered around the breath that goes throught the whole song, grounding the whole experience in the most human place there is, survival. Skar de Line
"Thematically, the lyrics draw their inspiration from Haruki Murakami’s brilliant novel 1q84. The twin moons that characterize the parallel universe in the story gave the song its name and inspired us to produce an alternate (or parallel) version of the track." - My Friend The Chimpanzee
"I developed a crush on one of my best friends after a mushroom trip, decided to ask them out via writing a song but between the production of the song taking a long time and mine and their schedule not syncing up, my friend actually ended up getting into a relationship before I could share the song with them- which the aftermath is covered on the b-side, "Gretzky's Advice". Obviously that outcome sucked for me, but at the end of the day, I'm thrilled that they're happy and found love." - Ben Teeney
Chef by profession, it's probably not even surprising to learn Andrew created this tasteful single in his kitchen, in the middle of mics and wires. The artist has definitely got a knack on how to put together very different pieces, offering an evolving beat-driven experience that please those craving for something new and daring, and surrounding it all with the pleasantly mystical floating feeling highlighted with beautiful little arps.
