Rabbit Island - Deep In The Big

BEDROOM SUCK RECORDS

  • £16.99


Lo-fi and brooding experimental downbeat pop that reminds us of Empress and early-MirahDeep in The Big is a culmination of the music Amber Fresh (aka Rabbit Island) is known and adored for in her hometown, Perth/Fremantle, and beyond; it is a pure experience that will take listeners somewhere beautiful and new. 

Deep in The Big uses piano, guitar, chord organ, voice and a swag of effects to build a rippling, oceanic work. Part of the Perth/Fremantle psych-renaissance, but treading her own path, Rabbit Island shoots for her own constellation of sound, lands there, and doesn’t look back.

Deep in The Big was recorded in Melbourne and Ocean Beach (Wurundjeri and Whadjuk land) in 2015 in the soft wooden rooms of Soundpark Studio and by the sea at producer Aden Senycia's Soft Machine studio. Aden Senycia recorded the album (Nathalie Pavlovic assisting) and mixed it with Amber. Amber’s friend and collaborator Nicholas Allbrook joins on guitar and voice in some tracks, and a few other friends (Tristan Parr, Benjamin Witt, Peter Bibby, Leonie Brialey) dip a sound, a conversation, or a cello in too.
