AQUASLUM is the debut album from Melbourne band HOY. After three years of writing, performing and touring, HOY’s founding members, Liam Linley, Felicity Cripps and Cecilia Dowling, expanded the trio to a six-piece band and recorded their debut album.
Written and recorded in a grand, old country house in regional France, and later recorded in a converted church in the Victorian Goldfields, by producer Pip Norman (TZU, Sparkadia, Gossling), the album features layers of vocal harmonies combined with warm guitars, strings, and analogue samples. Electric rock-outs, psychedelic interludes and classically inspired instrumentals lend a sense of timelessness to HOY’s sound.
The albums material is endless through the arranging of songs, re-writing lyrics, adding or subtracting chords or adding sounds to make it a HOY song. Collaboratively, HOY’s musical principles often start out as conversations about how elements of music can make you feel. The album includes singles ‘Bridget Bardot’ and ‘Wild Dog’.
