Lyndon Blue - Only Connect

Lyndon Blue - Only Connect
Recorded between a backyard shed and a disused physiotherapy clinic in the suburbs of Melbourne, Warm Corona is a six-song arc of warped DIY pop, inspired equally by Australian post-punk experimentalists (Severed Heads, Essendon Airport, The Metronomes) and the wild, wide-eyed songwriting of favourites like Arthur Russell, Kate Bush and David Byrne.

Keeping busy in the Australia’s underground music scene for the better part of a decade, Lyndon Blue is best known for subtly jazz tinged electronica project Leafy Suburbs, as well as playing live for notable acts such as Methyl Ethel, Darren Hanlon and Peter Bibby. Warm Corona though, represents the first musical effort released under Blue’s own name, spanning disco, lo-fi rock and even adult contemporary moods.

“The lyrics bounce from ancient architecture to social anxiety, creative optimism to self-doubt and at least one tarot card, tracing the ease with which we can feel despairing, emboldened or just plain mystified from one modern moment to the next. Is the “warm corona” the sun’s cosmic aura - an invisible force watching over us from on high? Or is it, after all, just an underwhelming beer from where you’d rather be?”

About this track...

‘Only Connect’: the title is a quote from E. M. Forster’s novel Howard’s End (apparently it’s the name of a British game show, too). This one’s a platonic love song, built on a driving drum machine rhythm; I wanted it to feel like Suicide covering Springsteen (or vice versa, which actually happened apparently).
