Admittedly, when I stumbled upon the music of Rabbit Island, I knew very little of Amber Fresh and her project. But, with her forthcoming album, she seems to have struck a cord within me that’s not easily ignored. For instance, this track has this emotive organ as the key musical element; I, oddly, don’t even think it needs much more than that. Amber operates between spoken word and half-hearted song throughout, and its her dedication to musical patience that draws you further into the depths of the song. Deep In the Big is going to take me on a magical journey, and I couldn’t be happier about it; it drops this week via Bedroom Suck Records.
I was blown away by the first single from Rabbit Island‘s forthcoming LP, but I’m putting that aside to fall head over heels in love with this new number. There’s a delicate nature to this track, as if it could be shattered like a window…it adds strength to the tunes emotive qualities. Amber’s voice glides across the mix with gentle ebbs and flows atop the piano work that serves as the song’s backbone; it comes across like words dancing upon the wind, dancing their way into your subconscious, their new home. The new album, Deep in the Big, will be released on August 17th via Bedroom Suck Recods/Remote Control.
Always keeping my ear to the seas, word’s been spreading about Australia’s Rabbit Island for some time, and today we get a glimpse of why Amber Fresh’s project is riding the whispers of hype. This track is very bare and emotional; it revolves entirely around Fresh and a piano, with the ivory keys striking a solemn tone. Her voice has this innocence to it, with her words showing us a more playful side of songwriting. The world will all get to hear her new album, Deep in the Big, when it’s released by Bedroom Suck Records/Remote Control on August 17th.
