Check out this new video from up-and-coming Australian act Guineafowl. It’s for the single ‘Botanist’ This credible mix of electro-pop, post-punk and acoustic influences should whet your appetite for the artist’s new EP, ‘High Anxiety’ out June 20, 2011.
A small dwelling above an antique store on a main road near Bondi Beach is not the ideal studio space. Add to that a main bus line and a few microphones and you’ve got yourself a very unlikely recording sanctuary. Yet, this is where Guineafowl chose to record his first ideas. With merely his laptop, its in-built microphone and a soda water at his side, the beginning ideas of his debut EP “Hello Anxiety” began to take shape.
“The recording process was a little frustrating. I would often have to stop what I was doing every ten minutes to let a bus pass. The antique store below would also be moving heavy furniture each day that added to the loud outside sound. I chose to do it there though as I had ideas bursting out of me and I wanted to get them down by any means possible,” the songwriter explains.
