News: Brisbane’s Founds follow Triple J Unearthed win with hypnotic debut album – ‘Hadean’
Eclectic, intimate and hypnotic Brisbane sextet, Founds, are proud to announce the release of their debut album, ‘Hadean’.
Evoking the raw energy of Mogwai, the hypnotic swirl of Björk, and the glistening grandeur of Sigur Ros, Founds nonetheless manage to instil a unique vision unto their debut. ‘Hadean’ represents a compelling intersection between indie-pop, post-rock, folk and psychedelia.
The kaleidoscopic nature of the record should come as no surprise considering the group’s musically liberated beginnings. “We formed a few years ago when Alex and myself were working on a few tracks together,” says vocalist Kirstie Ford. “We had the desire to create a bigger, deeper sound. That caused for more members.”
“Some of us knew each other from university or have been old friends for some time,” says vocalist, Kirstie. “Over one winter in 2010 we had access to an old, dark empty house, which we used as our jam space. We quickly became very well connected and a lot of our inspiration is owed to that house.”
Yet, the album’s inspirations stretch further than bricks and mortar; hurdling through time, space, stone and fire. “Hadean is known as the earliest eon in the history of the Earth from the first accretion of planetary material,” says Kirstie. “Hadean is about Earth’s journey – and the beauty it holds.”
‘Hadeon’ is due out on 7th September on Rare Finds through Inertia Access
