There’s been some controversy floating around Australia recently about our lack of support for female artists (read more here), but it hasn’t done anything to slow the incredible female talent this nation houses. Melbourne songstress Gossling is one of the finest of the current crop, and is set to blow up over the back end of this year with the release of her debut album Harvest of Gold. We’ve just been treated to the first look at what this LP might sound like, with the first single “Never Expire” being received to rapturous reviews.
While the single itself is brilliant, I’ve been enraptured with the Oliver Tank remix ever since I pressed play an hour ago. Oliver Tank is slowly starting to creep his way back into the limelight after being pretty quiet over the last year or so (check out his recent cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence“).
With another EP promised, he also just completed a run of shows supporting James Blake, an artist Tank obviously admires greatly. He’s done a good job with this remix too, with his typically ghostly soundscapes and echoing percussion sliding in perfectly behind Gossling’s standout vocals.
Gossling’s album is scheduled for November 1, and I’m really intrigued to hear more of her electronic-based production!
