HOUSE ANXIETY

Harvey Sutherland

Boy

    Melbourne-based producer, DJ and instrumentalist, Harvey Sutherland announces his stunning debut album, Boy via House Anxiety.

    Drop the needle on Boy and find yourself transported to a hypermodern take on funk music.

    Recorded between London, Los Angeles and Katz’s own Swimming Pool studios with a host of hotshot Melbourne session musicians and a string of guests, tracks like “Age Of Acceleration” and “Michael Was Right About You” take the base elements of funk and fire them through a prism of influences.

    The hyper-produced studio pop of Todd Rundgren, the lush synth groove of New York boogie and the harsh snap of coldwave.

    Early Harvey Sutherland 12-inches like “Bermuda” and “Priestess” (handpicked by Paul Woolford aka Special Request for his recent DJ Kicks compilation) were electronic dance records in love with the sound of soul, funk and disco music.

    But Boy is every bit the real deal.

    Boy has been a couple of years in the works, taking shape in between tours with Khruangbin and Hot Chip as well as a busy studio schedule that include production and killer remixes for Disclosure, Genesis Owusu and Hiatus Kaiyote.

    In this time, Katz also spread his wings as a bandleader, touringinternationally with his live ensemble and directing an 11-piece band for the New York boogie icon Leroy Burgess on his Australian tour.

    Lead single ‘Avant Gardener’ is a vivid display of Courtney Barnett’s magic. A hookladen fug of country roots and discordant psychedelia with a dreamlike narrative.

    The collection is a record of two halves, and collates her story so far. It fittingly begins with six brand new songs and is then backed with six older tracks which were originally released in the form of her 2012 debut EP. Together, ‘The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas’ spans genres and stories, and is a unique introduction to an incomparable and exciting new talent.

    As well as ‘Avant Gardener’, selected highlights include the gorgeous and woozy piano-strewn opener ‘Out Of The Woodwork’, which shows the darker side of her writing. ‘Anonymous Club’ sees Courtney at her romantic, melancholic best, while the infectious, Dylan-esque cavalcade that is ‘History Eraser’ was recently nominated alongside Tame Impala for the APRA Song Of The Year back in Australia.
