Captain Earwax - National Roads

Captain Earwax - National Roads
Captain Earwax (a.k.a. Australian interdisciplinary artist Daniel O'Toole/EARS) crafts a rich kaleidoscope of aural landscapes with his unique brand of electronica. From a background in 90's Boom Bap production and vinyl-plus-hardware sampling, Earwax draws from a range of influences: folk, jazz, glitch, dub and hip hop all blending to build a broad global palette of instruments and textures. The manifesting sound is intricate, glitchy and melody-driven; a balance of live acoustic sounds, field recordings, handheld percussion, warm analogue synth tones and a plethora of quirky noise making toys.

His mesmerising and tactile live set blurs the wobbly lines of live electronic performance using an array of obscure acoustic instruments, synthesisers and live effects units all fusing together as he creates lovingly intricate and detailed worlds of sound.

Completing an international tour in 2018 supporting split/flip, (released with Kyoto based electronic act omni sight) Captain Earwax has performed across Australia at festivals including Perth Fringe World, Vivid Sydney and EMCPlay - following his appearance at EMCPlay Captain Earwax was handpicked by Giles Peterson to perform live at an exclusive broadcast on WorldWide FM at Network Connection Records.

About this track...

Written on the Australia Day, with Maitê Inaê and Earwax respectfully declining to ‘celebrate’ the ever-problematic holiday, the EP’s title track offers a love song to the beauty of Australian desert central to this Aboriginal land we inhabit. With string parts added by Peter Hollo (cello) and Earwax (violin), percussion and additional keyboards from Miles Sharma-Constance.
