Felicity Groom is set to release her much anticipated sophomore album ‘Hungry Sky’ through Spinning Top Records on Friday October 17th, watch the video for first single ‘Higher, Higher, Taller, Taller’ now.
The follow on from her debut ‘Gossamer’, the forthcoming album ‘Hungry Sky’ features 12 tracks and was recorded in Perth with band mates Andrew Ryan, Mike Jelinek and Steve Summerlin, and includes guest appearances from Kevin Parker, Jay Watson and Julian Barbagallo (Tame Impala) who all perform on the brand single above.
On the new single ‘Higher, Higher, Taller, Taller’ Felicity says: “The tallest building in the world is in Dubai - called Burj Khalifa. It’s 829.8 metres high. That's approximately 500 people stacked up from head to toe. This song, it took a few people. Not five hundred, maybe five. Actually, four from ground zero to completion. The original demo was played on my granddads drum kit and a beaten up electric organ. We got the final version to sound as much like the demo as possible, with Kevin Parker adding his mad Aphex twin style beat production in the break down.”
Felicity Groom will also be performing @ BIGSOUND
Wednesday September 10th - Black Bear Lodge 9:50pm - 10:20pm
'Hungry Sky’ will be released on Friday October 17th. You can pre-order the album here.
We're pretty damn excited to share with you, the first taster of Felicity Groom's second album 'Hungry Sky'. The track is called Move Your Muscles and is free for you from today, right here.
Move Your Muscles will give you a bit of an idea of the direction Felicity is headed in, following on from her critically acclaimed debut 'Gossamer'. We asked Flic to tell us a little bit about the track...
"Currently there's 1.73 billion users of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram alone. That's a dizzying amount of thinking and posting going on out there. It's dizzying for most to know what to do with just one proclamation and so we see a few people using these social media tools incredibly effectively and some use them like a shovel spinning around on ones fingers.
In retrospect, I can see the influences in this song stylistically... the mc hip hop shout out... the post rock pockets and the choruses opening out into celebratory space pop territories. It was just a song begun on one little synth. Move Your Muscles."
Listen below and grab it here.
Saturday May 17 at Mojo's Bar in North Fremantle, we'll be throwing a party in celebration of the launch of Spinning Top Records. Come down and hang with us, watch some bands, have some drinks and party on down.
We are super excited to announce the formation of our new label, Spinning Top Records, in association with ADA.
The first release will take us back to where it all began, with the now-legendary Mink Mussel Creek album Mink Mussel Manticore. Up until now it has only been available on USB wristband, on Friday May 16 it will be released as a digital download (with pre order available here on iTunes now), followed with a double vinyl release in June.
To launch the label, we're offering a free download each week for the next 5 weeks. The first will be the Mink Mussel Creek taster – a 13-minute monster titled They Dated Steadily available from today right here.
Tracks from GUM, Shiny Joe Ryan, Felicity Groom and Nicholas Allbrook will follow the first Mink download.
Spinning Top Records will then release the GUM and Shiny Joe Ryan albums in June, also available on vinyl and digital download.
In the coming months there will be releases from Felicity Groom, Peter Bibby, Nicholas Allbrook, Allbrook/Avery and everything else the label loves.
Expect a May 2014 launch party.
