The Boats - Seize the Stars and Turn them to Cinders

The Boats - Seize the Stars and Turn them to Cinders
The Boats second album, aptly titled Segundo, arrives 8 years after their debut release. It’s been a long time between drinks, but the difficult second album has survived many set backs. Now after 8 long years, it’s done. Segundo was recorded at JMC Studios in Melbourne in the summer of 2006/2007, over two of the hottest days on record. The approach was simple, to go into a recording studio and improvise, everything. For the most part, this was true, a majority of the album is purely improvised. A couple of tracks were born from riffs brought to the table, others were spawned from inspiration, tom tom bustles and plectrum hustles. What followed was forged through the driving emotion of Melbourne’s extreme heat, and the kind of raw intensity that can only be produced from the marriage of glowing Fender valves and vintage Ludwig drums.

Segundo is an epic, sprawling, largely improvised and yet focused instrumental post-rock album; fully formed and complex. It vibrates themes of urban aggression, the inherent destructive nature of capitalism and the beautiful, yet tragic imagery associated with human isolation. There are larger concepts at work on Segundo, and the wait could almost be perfect timing

About this track...

An exciting. progressive indie track featuring pulsing keys, electronic flurries and Nick Conolly's trademark vintage guitar.
