New album June 7th! New track today: Listen Here.
09.05.19: We’re beyond excited to announce that we will have a new album, our first in 12 years, out on June 7th, 2019. It’s called Luna Low and features ten tracks recorded and mixed by our very own Marty Brown at Brunswick Masonic Hall and Standalone Studios over the last couple of years. It’s been a long time coming but we’re very proud of it and we can’t wait for you to hear it. In celebration, we’re releasing the title (and closing track) of the album, which you can go and listen to right now.
What to say about it? Well, it took us a long time to make it. Which is not that strange for us and our glacial pace. In fact, Marty and Ollie started jamming up the skeletons (ahem) of some of these tunes way back in 2012. When it came to recording it, we tracked it in a big hall in Brunswick to try and capture some natural reverb, which has given it a pretty spacious sound. Thematically and lyrically, the album reflects on some of our own could-have-beens and would-have-beens. It’s about dreams past becoming reduced dreams of the present, ageing and lifestyle colliding, growing up after growing up, and perhaps, it’s the first set of AOF songs that approach these themes with a sometimes playful eye. The album cover, which had the design brief of ‘Queensland Gothic’, is above.
We’d also like to say a huge thank you to all those who came to our Melbourne and Sydney shows last month. We really enjoyed being on stage again. Apologies to those who missed out on tickets in Melbourne, but rest assured that a new album probably means more shows soon, and hopefully in more cities!
Anyway, enjoy the new track Luna Low, and we hope you look forward to hearing Luna Low the album on June 7th.
