EP 2: Venture Capitalists
The second EP from klee shade - remastered, for the second time. re-remastered, if you will.
Everything has a dark side, especially disneyland. This mutation of a pop release opens with the project's first widespread radio single ever, 'Beg For Rain' (which, in 2016, preceded the debut EP) is proceeded by the only instrumental track in the opening 3 EP's, named 'Death', ...which, of course, has to be followed up by a song called 'The Cure'... a seasidey single i love dearly, alongside the outright oceanic track 5 'Looking'.
Amidst these is the improvised, inebriated, out-of-thin-air 'Eyesy', recorded (in a single take amongst passerbys at Ballina skatepark) completely by phone, never presumed to see the light of day, with the only featuring artist across all three EPs on them wine bars. My dude Isaac completely just freestyled his way onto my EP and I couldn't be happier about it.
Song 6 is the aeronautical 'Constellocean', born of my first synthesiser - and the closing track 'Lately'... this is kind of a big one. It was recorded almost entirely in a echoey, quiet pub in Lismore, Northern NSW - approaches themes of mental illness, substance abuse and mortality, and it simply wouldn't exist hadn't my dear friend Callum Willows told me to 'keep playing that riff'. I didn't think much of it at the time but in the deadest of gigs, that small act of encouragement birthed one of my favourite songs on 'Venture Capitalists'.
I've mentioned a few boys... but really, this release is much more about girls. Shoutout to (some girls whose names i've redacted) for existing - and really, any girl, or anyone for that matter that made me, or really any other human feel stuff, and junk. And things. And such. Music made me feel some great things and that's why I did this. And here we are.
