Gabriella Cohen’s new album Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love is out today. To celebrate, she has announced two headline dates in New York and Los Angeles this September / October. Catch Gabriella tour Australia with her full band starting next Friday 8 June. Full tour details below.
Following the release of 2016’s record Full Closure and No Details, Cohen moved to a countryside Victoria farm in the summer of 2017 to record and self produce her second album with engineer and partner-in-crime, Kate ‘Babyshakes’ Dillon. There, they etched the beginning of Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love.
Invited to join Foxygen’s U.S. tour, the two would finish the almost complete record on the road. What you hear on the album was borne of a microphone, an interface, and the multiplicity of spirits inhabiting the places they would record: a boat in England, the coast of Portugal, the mountains of Southern Italy, cafes of Mexico, and finally the sand of Venice Beach, LA.
Throughout the new album Cohen (flanked by a choir of imaginary dolls that exist in her head) creates complex and sugary backing vocals. These signature vocal arrangements—contoured with classic harmonies and nostalgic melodies—form songs remarkable in their originality.
Cohen pays homage to her musical influences by inviting the listener on a journey: from the grooves of bossa nova, to the lilting sentimentality of strings, to kicking it back on the sprawling highways of rock’n’roll. Honest heartache is woven into glory throughout the record; a candid, almost ethereal self-portrait of its songwriter emerges.
