Long time friends Elena Isolini and Bianca Scout align amidst the madness to deliver their new collaborative album for Them There - Our Hearts. Both dedicated and revered, multi-disciplined artists in their own right, the pair harness a spectrum of talents from their individual fields for this moving new album. Friends and contributors to Our Hearts include Mun Sing (Giant Swan), Cameron Molloy (Violence Grass Band) and Alex Mckenzie (Gentle Stranger).
Informed in-part by their contemporary dance and movement collective ‘Daughter Mary’, Our Hearts explores narrative led composition through slow motion, character-like vocalisations that render remote scenes of fabled icy landscapes. Through the mist of choral vocals, raw, choppy samples brush against guitar and piano loops to lull the listener. Conjuring elements of Collage Pop and gnarly Experimental Ambient, the kind that fans of Bianca Scout may already be familiar with from her previous collaborations with the likes of Klein and the Curl collective.
Recorded and produced in London over intermittent gatherings throughout the past four years, Our Hearts reflects two independent artists with a singular vision, sharing a voice to present a surreal but honest exchange of energy.
