Awash with AntleR
6. Far Out 4.52
Lyrics: Philip Larkin
Produced: Awash with AntleR/John Spence
Recorded: Fairview Studios, 22 January 2010
Awash with AntleR formed towards the end of 2007. They played their first gigs together in January 2008 and released their debút EP Channel 16 in 2009. At the time of recording the all night north album, they had steadily built up a wide following for their bewitching live performances and their enchanting songs. Here, they’ve worked their magic and poured their potions over Larkin’s ‘Far Out’ to produce a magical and characteristically Awash with AntleR incantation.
They write tunes about such topics as a voodoo greengrocer, swollen hearts, baking a blackbird pie. They have a dazzling array of instruments at their command, including viola, violin, stylophone, stomp box and a yellow teapot: listen for the fizzing of a dissolving Alka-Seltzer tablet used as musical effect on this track. They live by the North Sea. They love tea. Make friends with them, and explore their wonderful techni-coloured world.
