About Lack The Low
Melbourne's Lack The Low will be launching their debut album 'One Eye Closed' - a catchy and challenging avant-pop record composed, performed, recorded and produced by musical virtuoso Kat Hunter through a three-year DIY process.
With this first release, Hunter instantly proves herself as a talented composer/producer who isn’t afraid to push the envelope. Stylistically, her math-inspired experimental pop weaves between soaring Thom Yorke-esque vocals, complemented by dense instrumentation and triggered brass comparable to the likes of Joanna Newsom and late-era Bon Iver.
Hiding under the fluttering harmonies, every listen bears something new to find – you could find yourself stunned by the towering highs and smooth lows of her vocal range; losing yourself in the orchestral piano compositions or even appreciative of the unusual drumming as you try to tap out the beats on your leg.
Continuing on this trajectory, Lack The Low will almost certainly be on end-of-year avant-pop lists – and is well within reach of creating a critical masterpiece in the near future.
About Wartime Sweethearts
Sydney’s Wartime Sweethearts (Louise Nutting) has created a compelling piece of experimental pop with 'So Long Sparta'.
The album draws influence from Bjork and St. Vincent in its fusing of electronic beats with lush textures and beautiful harmonies.
There are also echoes of Ella Fitzgerald in the captivating vocal style, Dirty Projectors in the layered compositions, and Sufjan Stevens in the album’s cathartic content.
