perth - Greasy Moon

perth - Greasy Moon
Spawning from intercontinental collaboration, perth’s 2012 debut LP, Babes, Water, Waves, was born in many locations other than their eponymous hometown. However, geographical separation failed to distance the musical sentiments shared between three members of Apricot Rail (Matthew Saville, Justin Manzano and Jack Quirk) and songwriter Michael Dolan. A dual sense of triumph and melancholy permeated Babes, Water, Waves, conveyed through combining traditional instrumentation and pop structure with warbling organic samples, hissing analogue keys, found sounds and woozy vocal harmonies.

The band’s second album, what’s your utopia?, takes an eclectic approach to organic electronic music while evolving its scope and clarity. Recorded in a variety of locations, from a desolate cabin perched upon the surly south-west Australian coast to the glow of Studio 373 in Perth, the album was then mixed by the band’s Justin Manzano before being mastered by Simon Struthers (Mukaizake, Umpire) of Forensic Audio.

About this track...

‘Greasy Moon’ is an echoing, disorientating, addictive stomp that offers a tantalising hit of the wonderful songcraft woven throughout What’s Your Utopia?’s expansive, eclectic patchwork. As reassuring as it is creepy, as uplifting as it is doggedly despondent, it exemplifies the perverse pleasures and ear-bending dichotomies perth draw upon.
