melody as truth is proud to announce this split 7inch by jonny nash and suzanne kraft. the release features two tracks of melancholic ambience and kicks off a new string of releases for the label in the latter half of 2016. high price on this due to large production costs limited copies. tipped!
tourist kid s first release for melody as truth. recorded in perth and melbourne between 2016 and 2017. though the idea of movement between two places could be a somewhat romantic afterthought, a more palpable sense of dislocated unease creeps up on the listener throughout the album.
with his debut mat release entitled universel, palta almost paints with sound. working a defined palette with subtlety and clarity of vision, we are taken to places that are alien yet somehow familiar a world whose delicate exterior belies a profound depth and power.
following on from the acclaimed “talk from home”, suzanne kraft returns to melody as truth with a second full release, “what you get for being young”. recorded in amsterdam over the course of may 2016, “what you get for being young” offers a full immersion into kraft’s ever-evolving world. a milky tip! . lush, digital manipulated synths spread across cold surfaces, metallic drums dance around skeletal song structures. whilst echoes of “talk from home” remain, they are but faint echoes, as kraft’s recent exploration into sound-design and digital manipulation confidently posits “what you get for being young” as an entirely new chapter in the artist’s growing narrative
melody as truth returns with talk from home an album from los angeles native suzanne kraft. talk from home showcases krafts emotional depth as a producer, and skill as a multi-instrumentalist. recorded over a few weeks in the winter of 2014, the intimacy of the recordings shines through in a melancholic yet hopeful world of melody and tone.
jonny nash returns to melody as truth following his - phantom actors- ep. -exit strategies- puts nash s layered guitar textures at centre stage, further demonstrating his ability to draw emotion from the simplest of elements. a glimmering mini lp of lush and spacious compositions, surrounded by nash s own unique air and atmospheric touch. beautiful, tip!
