Bio

Anoesis is the second single off the upcoming record 'Chocolate Cake' (due for release at the end of July 2013). 'Chocolate Cake' was recorded in various homes between Sydney all the way to Coolah in cental northern NSW. The band started by exploring the concept of playing 'live' together in a room and then dove into production-heavy song-making. It's their first Extended Play as a 3-piece with bassist Pete Covington (Spirit Faces) joining founders James Blackwood (vocals, guitar) and Tim Parsons (drums).

Everything about this track speaks to the cosmic themes that sit among the lyrics. The short blips and bleeps of satellites that construct the synth melody, the celestial soaring vocals and the sparse computerized drum track. A total space jam.

Have heard some big wraps on this tune and it certainly delivers a beguiling listening experience. Strange, almost formless fizzes of astral synthesizers circle this soaring vocal that recalls an alternate dimension where Dave Hosking fronts Radiohead.

Comletely bizarre slowed down vocals make for babyesque chants throughout the track. Perfect counterpoint for calm, controlled main vocal melody. Unnerving but excellent.
