Vera Blue Releases Debut Album ‘Perennial’

 

As rising artist Vera Blue prepares for her first solo headline performance this afternoon in the Mix Up Tent at Splendour In The Grass Festival, her debut album Perennial which is this week’s triple j feature album is officially released today.

Perennial traces the circular pathways between love and loss and is arranged into three chapters, which chronologically trace the development of Vera Blue; from her very first week writing, raw after the breakdown of a relationship, towards a place of renewed strength and vivacity.

Included on the album is first single ‘Private’, ‘Mended’ and the recently released infectious trackRegular Touch. The new album introduces a fully-formed Vera Blue, seamlessly synthesizing her folk past with a bold, electronic pop future.

Recorded between Los Angeles and Sydney, Perennial was written with longtime collaborators Andy and Thom Mak (Boy & Bear, Bertie Blackman) and produced by Andy Mak and executive producer Grammy-nominated founder of Deep Well Records Adam Anders. The release of Perennial will be celebrated with her National Mended Tour which is selling fast with most shows already  SOLD OUT and extra dates added, with Laykn and Thandi Phoenix supporting nationally.

Vera Blue announces debut album ‘Perennial’

Unstoppable singer-songwriter Vera Blue  has announced today that she will release her debut album, Perennial, on Friday July 21st.

An intensely personal record, Perennial traces the circular pathways between love and loss across its 12 tracks. The album is arranged into three chapters, which chronologically trace the development of Vera Blue; from her very first week writing, raw after the breakdown of a relationship, towards a place of renewed strength and vivacity.

 

Included on the album is first single ‘Private’, with currently over 2.2 million streams worldwide, and ‘Mended’. The new album introduces a fully-formed Vera Blue, seamlessly synthesizing her folk past with a bold, electronic pop future.

 

‘“Perennial” is a term for plants that come back year after year, and I like to relate that to memory, feelings and emotions,’ says Vera Blue. ‘It’s what the record is all about; relationships can be very cyclical, or never-ending, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s just part of life.’

 

Recorded between Los Angeles and Sydney, Perennial was written with longtime collaborators Andy and Thom Mak (Boy & Bear, Bertie Blackman, Silverchair) as well as engineer Jackson Barclay. It’s the product of countless hours spent crafting songs in the studio as a team and despite its new sonic elements, the album is underpinned by the classic songwriting that has defined Vera Blue’s musical growth.

 

Produced by Andy Mak, and most recently co-produced with Grammy-nominated founder of Deep Well Records Adam Anders, Perennial arrives on the eve of Vera Blue’s fast- selling national tour, including her second appearance – and first as a solo artist – at the sold-out Splendour In The Grass in two years.

 

Perennial sees Vera Blue finding arresting new ways to channel a voice Australia has already fallen for. Unflinchingly honest, it’s the album she had to write, with a sound that is entirely her own.

CELIA PAVEY ANNOUNCES ‘BODIES’ EP TOUR

CELIA PAVEY ANNOUNCES ‘BODIES’ EP TOUR

Celestial Australian folk artist Celia Pavey is debuting her pure and otherworldly vocal ability on the long-awaited EP Bodies. Heading on an East Coast tour in support of the EP, out August 29, audiences can expect an intimate performance reflecting Celia’s earliest experiences singing in the church hall of her small hometown, Forbes NSW.

This studio introduction to Celia’s honest and adventurous folk songwriting sweeps through that flat, ghostly landscape and into sonically lush territory. Featuring writing collaborations with Tim Hart of Boy & Bear (‘Shadow’) and Bluejuice’s Jake Stone (‘Bodies’), the songs build and swell with instruments. Through them, Celia sings of young loss and desire with a voice that has already captured international attention.

Produced by Eric J. Dubowsky (Chet Faker, Flume), the Bodies EP is an intrepid first statement from a songwriter whose abilities belie her 20 years of age. In the title song and the EP’s first single, ‘Red’, piano and percussion eddy and swirl around a subtle yet undeniable hook. Celia wrote the song in the week leading up to recording the EP.

“It was a really quick decision to include ‘Red’ on the EP, but Eric really liked it and I suppose it’s a very honest song,” Celia explains. “I’m a very honest person so I like to write about real things that are happening in my life rather than make up stories. I write a lot about the people in my life. Most of my songs are about love or the habits people share.”

The EP is rounded out by a cover of the Bat For Lashes song ‘Laura’, which Celia makes her own with a gentle touch and Dubowsky’s rich production. The Bodies EP, too, is a missive to the world that Celia Pavey is so much more.
