Brisbane duo Primitive Motion have released their new album House in the Wave. Sandra Selig and Leighton Craig recorded the album across Sunday afternoons spent in Selig’s home studio in Brisbane.
House in the Wave is a meditative suite of dreamy piano-based songs, captured live at the point of conception and teeming with the incidental sounds of both the studio and surrounding garden.
The days spent in studio document the process of composition: the rustle of lyric sheets and unintended room sounds are also accompanied by birdsong and an approaching storm.
In the process of reducing their sound world to the barest of instrumentation (at times just voice and piano), Primitive Motion revels in the beauty of the unadorned song, creating the purest distillation of their ‘dream-float’ music to date.
Once again, housed in a stunning package, including printed inner sleeves and signature Primitive Motion artwork of lost and imagined worlds, House in the Wave is a beautiful and intimate work by a band constantly evolving their sound.
