HIGHLINE

Correatown

Embrace The Fuzzy Unknown

Three years have passed since Correatown released the critically acclaimed dream-pop album ‘Pleiades’. Highline are proud to announce the release of her follow up, ‘Embrace The Fuzzy Unknown’.

Having built a fanbase with her debut album ‘Spark. Burn. Fade’, Correatown’s listeners continued to grow through her work in TV and film music and her collaboration with Tom Brosseau as Les Shelleys. ‘Pleiades’ saw Correatown expanding both her global audience and her sonic horizons.

Correatown’s new album reflects and revels in change and evolution. Songs wonder about purpose, wonder about the future and wonder if this is all that there is. Without answers to these questions, the music implores us to ‘Embrace The Fuzzy Unknown’.

The album was produced by Angela Correa and Dan Long (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Son Volt, TV On The Radio).

Correatown’s music has appeared on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘Ugly Betty’, ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and ‘Private Practice’ and films ‘The Lucky One’ and ‘Admission’.

Beautifully crafted ethereal pop music that will appeal to fans of Feist, Regina Spektor and Best Coast.

The Icypoles

My World Was Made For You

    The Icypoles grew out of a soundtrack to an experimental film. During the recording Isobel Knowles discovered a love for 60s girl group garage bands and film music that creates a particular dark ambience. She started the band with her best friends Tara Shackell and Kim White and together they became The Icypoles.

    Tara and Isobel were invited to join Architecture In Helsinki soon after The Icypoles started playing to audiences and there was a long pause in the development of the band while AIH toured the globe. However, the idea stayed strong and more songs showed their faces over the years.

    The time came to take The Icypoles more seriously. The band found a new drummer, Lani Sommer, and together went into the recording studio (a kitchen in a temporary house). The recordings were interspersed with shows around Melbourne and small tours (Sydney, Stockholm and New York City!). A cassette came out in London with Sexbeat zine in 2010. UK label Kooky Discs invited the Icypoles to release a limited edition 7” in 2011.

    Then came a more serious stint in the recording studio with producer Haima Marriott (Architecture In Helsinki, Still Flyin’) and the mixing process began. Isobel and Haima had worked together on those first soundtrack recordings and revisited their recording experiments.

    ‘Son Be Wise’ is the follow-up album to Ralfe Band’s acclaimed album, and soundtrack to the Warp film, ‘Bunny And The Bull’.

    ‘Son Be Wise’ features guest vocals from Alessi’s Ark and Piney Gir.

    The album was recorded with Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey, Anna Calvi) and Andy Ramsay (Stereolab).

    Blending euphoric folk pop, whispering ballads and inspired instrumentation, this album will appeal to fans of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Beirut, Villagers, Andrew Bird, M. Ward and Sufjan Stevens.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Ryan says: Introducing Angela Correa, her previous output has been minor key and ballady, but she has ventured into a new sound here and it's sweet and catchy and a bit electro here & there, though it still contains her signature charm.

      Still Flyin'

      On A Bedroom Wall

        ‘On A Bedroom Wall’ is a beautifully uplifting 80sinfluenced indie synth pop album laced with melancholy and longing.

        Led by Sean Rawls of Masters Of The Hemisphere, Still Flyin’s 2009?s much loved ‘Never Gonna Touch The Ground’ established the band?s fun-loving credo, and saw them touring the world 15- members strong, with a little help from the likes of Isobel Knowles (Architecture In Helsinki), Mark Monnone (Lucksmiths), Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor), Josephine Olausson (Love Is All) and Yoshi Nakamoto (Aisler Set).

        2012 sees the band streamlining their setup to bring a tight new ethos to their production and songcraft, mixed with a healthy dose of ingenuity and fun.

        These tracks will appeal to fans of Architecture In Helsinki, Cut Copy, Of Montreal and M83.
