Listen to the surfy doo-wop of 'Music Machine' from forthcoming debut Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love.
Australian musician Gabriela Cohen
has released another gem from her forthcoming debut LP Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love
which is due out June 1st
via Captured Tracks
. The spacious track evolves into a doo-wop sprawl, rotating around a 1950's style bassline and surfy guitar twangs.
The upcoming album was recorded in a rented farmhouse in Victoria, Australia using a lo-fi approach with friend and engineer Kate "Babyshakes," in the summer of 2017. Speaking of the track, Cohen explains that it was written in a post-tour haze after her first U.S tour.
As she explains in a press release: "'Music Machine' was born about the time when I came back from my first U.S tour and found myself down and out crashing on a friends couch in West Brunswick, Melbourne. It was a strange patch of time, where I felt comically displaced, coming from the glitz and glamour of New York straight to desolate suburbia and Centrelink queues.
"Maybe it was the weather
, or the jet lag, but in that short time I felt drugged, hazy; I got lost far too many times on bike paths, dry gusty December heat blowing me through parks and scrubland
.... In my delirium, I went on my first Tinder date and, thank g-d, because I made a very good friend who led me to a farmhouse where I would record Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love. All in all, "Music Machine" was written out of a delirious boredom, and in turn became a song I'm grateful to have written."
