Palm Springs - Ain't Gonna

Palm Springs - Ain't Gonna
Palm Springs began in 2014 previously releasing on Palm Springsteen Records. It remains as a solo song-writing project for Erica Dunn (Tropical Fuck Storm, Mod Con) who, on this release, employed the help of two long time companions Paul Pirie and Steph Hughes. The project responds in spirit to deep outsider folk sentiments and recalls heroes of the genre; Karen Dalton, Pip Proud and Hopkins/Bradley to name a few references.

The bulk of the tape was recorded after Dunn was accepted into an artist’s residency program in upstate New York in June 2017. To document this period of focused writing, Dunn approached NYHED studios in the Lower East Side NYC in the month that followed. Owned and operated by Matt and Rocío Verda-Ray, the small studio preferences analogue equipment and recording to tape, which suited the Palm Springs aesthetic perfectly. Seven tracks were completed in a 10-hour burst, with an aim to capture a song without overthinking or extrapolation. What results are very raw and immediate takes. Back home in Melbourne and eager to complete the project, a final song was added at Phaedra Studios with John Lee also recording to tape machine.

About this track...

Palm Springs describes this track: the song plays around with questions big and small; why we search for meaning, why we label and name, who we are in comparison to what’s out there and imagines the narrative of the female astrophysicist who made her name by dedicating her life to measuring floating pieces of cold rock in the sky.
