about

From mimicking drum sounds with their mouths and then processing the result to create a world of intricate, intimate sound; to recording a short EP’s worth of work at the snail’s pace of a minimum 12 months, the Sydney based duo Thomas Gray & Liam Ebbs approach their work with a fascinating blend of impulse and consideration. Sounds can be carefully sulptured, massaged, edited and reworked, only to be thrown out the window and replaced with a whole new set of material at a moment’s notice.

The pair pay acute attention to mood, space and atmosphere; they are not afraid to take their time. Listening to their compositions is like travelling through the countryside on a train, downriver on a boat, or rising into clouds through the windows of a commercial airliner. Gray and Ebbs’ music, it feels, is an accompaniment to thought and feeling, a personal soundtrack to carry in one’s head. As Eno said when famously coining the term ‘ambient’ - “Ambient music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting.”

In 2022, the pair will return with a new EP, ‘Blue’, their first for the Bedroom Suck Records label. The five tracks on Blue continue to explore the world that lies somewhere between organic and electronic, between natural sound and manufactured signal. Acoustic instruments make a notable appearance, as does a strong lead vocal in ‘It’s Alright’. The music is evocative, nostalgic and inspirational; It leaves one feeling hopeful.

'Blue' is out everywhere May 6, 2022 via Bedroom Suck Records / Flightless Distro (AU/NZ) / Cargo (UK/EU) / Polyvinyl (North America).

You sit in waiting
Amongst the grey blue bark fallen from felled trees
The old buttresses that held aloft
Our wandering minds gone now

The grass is long enough
To disguise uncomfortable hands
Lean back on yours
Sink your fingers into the cool earth
Dig at shallow roots

You face the low sun
Eyes shut
Neutral expression
Shadow falling into the doorway of the old dwelling
Long departed

This is the boundary
Upon which two adjacent properties meet
Neither knowing
To whom this structure belongs
