“Angie shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon” – Oyster Magazine
One of our most exciting musicians, whose guises include Circle Pit, Southern Comfort, Ruined Fortune and Straight Arrows and with 2 solo LP’s already under her belt, Angie is back with yet another brilliant record titled Shyness, set for release on March 24.
Although fixated on exploring and expanding the rock and roll genre in the 21st Century, Shyness is a quiet aside to an ever expanding body of work from Sydney based Artist and Musician Angela Garrick.
Opening track ‘A Ring’ is the first offering from Shyness and is “a response to non-physical utterances, strange coincidences, objects as emotional metaphors, and spaces in between events and people” explains Angie. The song leads from a loop of three chords, and returns to it time and time again, like a cyclical thought that is calming but slightly haunting. The piano comes to dominate the conclusion, and was improvised in the studio at the suggestion of my amazing engineer and producer Jonathan Hochman.
Continuing the thematic and instrumental questions brought up by Free Agent (released in 2015), Shyness presents a series of compositions formed in and around a grand piano. The record presents quiet moments, improvisations tied down, and an almost folk sensibility centered by piano, acoustic and electric guitar. Recorded by Jonathan Hochman (Holy Balm) the work moves between Satie-esque piano pieces towards Tangerine Dream melodies executed on electrics and through to the more contemporary quiet songform of Cat Power or Nico.
The ever evolving Angie continues to impress and intrigue with Shyness.
Shyness will be presented on 12″ vinyl and digital format through Rice is Nice & DERO Arcade on March 24.
