Sydney’s own Guineafowl has just announced the release of his second EP, I Hope My City Loves Me Still, due out October 11th.
Little Death (Make It Rain) is the first single, and was added to the rotation on FBi immediately in his hometown. The track is all synth and guitars, emotional yet hopeful. You can hear the track on Soundcloud.
FBi have also invited Guineafowl to play a special live-to-air Lunch Break performance on Wednesday September 4th at FBi Social. The performance is a chance to get a first listen at what is in store on the EP and is free to fans. Doors will open at 1pm.
The Guineafowl debut EP was originally recorded solo on a laptop in his small apartment in Bondi Beach, though live shows got quite crowded with up to six musicians joining him on stage. He then headed into the studio with those musicians to do some extra work on the EP before releasing High Anxiety.
Serving up dark intimacies on a platter of colourful, gleaming pop, new EP I Hope My City Loves Me Still is all at once vulnerable and bold; heartbreaking, yet uplifting. It’s a skill for which songsmith Sam Yeldham is renowned, and one so clearly displayed on his debut EP Hello Anxiety.
I Hope My City Loves My Still is available through Dew Process/Universal Music Australia from October 11, 2013.
Little Death (Make It Rain) is available from Monday September 2nd.
Don’t forget the Live-to-Air Lunch Break at FBi Social on Wednesday September 4th – doors open at 1pm. Venue: Level 2 of The Kings Cross Hotel
