Our everywhere man
After an insanely busy two years since the release of Liam's critically acclaimed debut I'll Be Lightning, their nearly uninterrupted schedule of touring took them around the world multiple times. Playing sold-out shows on every continent, opening for The Black Keys and Eddie Vedder and performing at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, not to mention TV appearances on Letterman and Jools Holland.
Recorded in April at Roundhead studios Auckland, New Zealand on the same analogue equipment that captured I'll Be Lightning, Champagne In Seashells is bigger and bolder, revealing new lyrical complexities and pointing in daring new musical directions. It also marks the debut studio collaboration between Liam and live cohort Eliza Jane.
The self produced EP was mixed by legendary sonic wiz Tchad Blake (Tom Waits, Gomez, Pearl Jam). Lead single Long Way To Go, encapsulates the magical dynamic of Liam And EJ's chaotic live show whilst tackling the anxieties of air travel, life on the road and homesickness.
The EP will take Liam and EJ back on the road, playing these new songs on a new world tour before Liam returns to NZ later in the year to support Pearl Jam.
Have a good day
