FLYING NUN RECORDS

Mermaidens

Look Me In The Eye

    Dancing in the lively afterglow of Perfect Body, Mermaiden's internationally acclaimed Flying Nun debut, a new flame burns. The Wellington-based trio now approach 2019 with an eagerly awaited follow up. Enter the depths of their new album, Look Me In The Eye.

    Earmarked by the trio's April split single release ?You Maintain The Stain / Cut It Open, the group (made up of friends Lily West, Gussie Larkin and Abe Hollingsworth) are in new terrain. Exploring power and control in a confronting new lens, the trio are focused on the gatekeepers and dominators of the world; dissecting their power, one song at a time.

    Recorded with long-time Mermaidens collaborator, audio engineer James Goldsmith, Look Me In The Eye sees the band pushing new sonic boundaries in a body of work that is as severe and progressive as it is vibrant and exhilarating.

    At the heart of the record lies the thematic exploration of female voices, as co-lead vocalists Larkin (guitar) and West (bass), with dynamic support from Hollingsworth (drums) expose embedded motifs of exterior masks, human relationships and power dynamics with unflinching fervour. The voices and perspectives of both frontwomen give shape to the record with equal footing, creating a dialogue around female collaboration and friendship in an ode to the complexities of the human experience. 

    Grayson Gilmour

    No Constellation

    So, perhaps we could tell some romantic story about a kid who turns to music during their early teens in an effort to save themselves from the boredom of swampy small town New Zealand. A couple of albums later they pack their bags for the big smoke, chasing the dream, etc etc... Add a few more releases, four or five years and now we have "No Constellation from Grayson Gilmour".

    Hailing from Palmerston North, Grayson Gilmour began his solo recordings at age 16 and has now teamed up with the re-launched Flying Nun for his fifth album "No Constellation". As one quarter of New Zealand band So So Modern, Grayson has spent the last years juggling between playing and recording with the band and his own 'bedroom/studio recluse' projects. All up "No Constellation" is a culmination of ideas built up over the last two-years - much of which he spent touring overseas with So So Modern. With a pile of praise in his home country and the New Zealand Herald declaring it; 'a clear contender for local record of the year.'
