Brett – Electric

Brett - Electric

Brett – Electric

Brett return with the release of ‘Electric’.

The track is more of an acoustic lo-fi track than electric, but Brett are taking an abstract route with their new material, of which is featured on their upcoming album, ‘Mode’.

Brett took influence for the album from Jean-Luc Godard’s recent film, ‘Goodbye to Language’. “The defining quote for me was: ‘For women, it’s only sex and death. For men, it’s only infinity and zeroes,’” says vocalist Mick Coogan. “It’s a fairly opaque statement, but I think the irony lies in assigning absolutes to human relationships, which can be so beautiful and inspiring. At the same time, the fundamental differences between men and women are very real and that shit is difficult to figure out.”

The vibrant album artwork was designed by Los Angeles based artist, Charley Alexander. The piece was then cut into 50 squares, each of which will be sold with limited edition pre-order copies of the vinyl record. “Our only direction was for the work to be vibrant and bursting with vitality. On the simple level of color, we wanted the jacket to express the brighter sounds and songs on our second album in relation to LP1. We feel Mode has an emotional warmth that the first album deliberately avoids. We also wanted to give our fans a chance to make a closer connection to the music.”

‘Mode’ is released on 18th March via Cascine.

Soop – Buffalo Buffalo EP

Soop

‘Buffalo buffalo’ is the name of the debut EP by Melborne, Australia residents Soop.

Soop started in 2013 when three friends and musicians- Michael Burke (lawyer, lasers, synths and beats), Stacy Gougoulis (vocals) and Mitch Secrett (guitars, beats and mixes), began sending eachother snippets of songs and ideas, progressing to quiet jams in apartments, and resulting in releasing a number of intricate and carefully crafted tunes.

With unique and floral beats combined with cascading synths and reverb-laden guitars, “Buffalo buffalo” is an exploration of electronic indie-pop sound culminating in one epic saxophone solo.

Opening with Ostrich of War- a bundled explosion of tracked vocals, cut up guitar and broken drums, through to the catchy choruses of High High High and Follow the Leader, the EP adventures into thick sonic territory and takes triumphant endings to a new high.

Recorded and mixed by the band in Melbourne, the EP was mastered by Paul Gold (Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear) and is out now, available to purchase here.
