Winter 2018 will see Perth’s angelic Rabbit Island release her newest album; Deep in The Big . A culmination of the music Amber Fresh is known and adored for in her hometown, Perth/Fremantle, and beyond, Deep in The Big is a pure experience that will take listeners somewhere beautiful and new. Amber is an artist who cannot create anything un-beautiful.
In Deep in The Big she uses piano, guitar, organ, voice and a swag of effects to build a rippling, oceanic work. Part of the Perth/Fremantle psych-renaissance, but treading her own path, Rabbit Island shoots for her own constellation of sound, lands there, and doesn’t look back.
Deep in The Big was recorded in Melbourne and Ocean Beach (Wurundjeri and Whadjuk land) in 2015 in the soft wooden rooms of Soundpark Studio and by the sea at producer Aden Senycia's Soft Machine studio.
Mastering was done at Poons Head with Rob Grant (Tame Impala, POND, Jeff Martin, Death Cab for Cutie, Melody's Echo Chamber). Aden Senycia recorded the album (Nathalie Pavlovic assisting) and mixed it with Amber.
Amber’s friend and collaborator Nicholas Allbrook joins on guitar and voice in some tracks, and a few other friends (Tristan Parr, Benjamin Witt, Peter Bibby, Leonie Brialey) dip a sound, a conversation, or a cello in too.
Deep in The Big is healing music from Perth's angel of experimental lo-fi romantic spiritual songs, Amber Fresh.
