Minibikes - Oh Japan

Minibikes - Oh Japan
Minibikes came into existence in 2010 when guitar playing singer songwriter Marcel Borrack realised he needed a band to add meat to the new material he had been coming up with. Teaming up with percussionist Al Barden, keyboard player and Clare Bowditch and the Feeding Set member Libby Chow, bass player Nathan Farrelly, and along with the addition of Tim Harvey on guitar, the newly monikered Minibikes set about honing a sound and working on the aforementioned songs that were to become the band's debut LP For Woods Or Trail.

Choosing the DIY recording route For Woods Or Trail was captured at Borrack's home studio with the man himself taking control of production duties. Without the constraints of time and budget usually associated with recording in a professional studio Borrack was able to give the tracks time to breathe; the resulting album is impressive in its singular focus, it's upbeat and uplifting songs with a palpable hint of melancholy simmering just below the surface.
