Sunbeam Sound Machine - Talking Distance

Sunbeam Sound Machine - Talking Distance
Sunbeam Sound Machine first garnered attention for 2013’s One/Sunbeam Sound Machine double-EP, before 2014's debut Wonderer received widespread acclaim, leading to touring Australia nationwide and the US with Sowersby’s 5-piece live outfit.

His second LP, Goodness Gracious, is a self-produced affair, written, recorded and mixed by Sowersby in his home studio before being mastered by John Lee (Laura Jean, Lost Animal, Totally Mild) at Phaedra Studios. Sonically, Goodness Gracious trades in Wonderer’s experimental headphone psychedelia for something at once more intimate and expansive, full to the brim with chiming guitars, glittering loops and warped, cinematic strings.

Sowersby says “I began working on this album in an exploratory way, recording for recording’s sake until an album began to naturally take form. Along the way I found some sounds that it feels like I’ve been hearing in my head for years. The result is 11 songs that document a period of change, about what we look to for guidance, comfort and stability in uncertain times”

The video for first single ‘Talking Distance’, shot by cinematographer Clancy Walker, captures the spirit of the song, stripped down to its mechanical parts as Sowersby plays and delivers the vocals unaffected against a colourful, shifting backdrop.

About this track...

‘Talking Distance’, premiered on Triple R and Pilerats, builds on a repeating distorted guitar pattern, a hypnotic rhythm section doing the heavy lifting while Sowersby’s vocals float over the top. The song details the feeling of coasting on auto-pilot, attempting to remain immune and keep one’s head above water in a flood of information and opinion.
