Mother Earth

June 30, 2010

I forget how much I’ve hyped Seagull on this blog but yeah, he rules and is one of the most interesting songwriters in Melbourne. Perfectly capturing the fragility of post-modern suburban Melbourne life with melancholy lyrics and beautifully dark folk instrumentation. Or something.

New song “Grand Mother” from upcoming LP Council Tree, sees a continuation of his subdued style only more condensed, electric and minimal. His nasal aussie vocals rise and fall over a sparse brooding bass line and percussion while limited use of guitar (plus misc instruments) adds lovely texture. Super psyched to see how the album turns out.
