Sydney’s Dappled Cities have christened their fourth album Lake Air.
Three years in the making, the album was conceived in London where the band briefly based themselves following the release of 2009’s Zounds. “The journey of this album was long and difficult,” says vocalist Tim Derricourt, “but the music that came out of it is so full of joy and happiness.”
The album was recorded in various sessions across Paris, Los Angeles and Sydney. It was co-produced by the band themselves with young US producer Jarrad Kritzstein, and later mixed in the UK by Cenzo Townshend (Bloc Party, Florence + The Machine, Interpol). “It's everything we've ever been,” adds Derricourt. “It’s got experimentation, wildness and melody. It gives me the sense that I get every now and again that we could keep doing this for another 20 years – or more.”
Lake Air will be out August 3 through HUB The Label, the new partnership between HUB Artist Services and Inertia.
