Michael Day will release His debut single ‘Guildford’ on the 30th of May, 2020.
His Indie Folk piece is a concoction of His thought-provoking lyrics, light-hearted melodies and love for different time signatures and extended chords. These elements create a fun and upbeat reflection of living in the suburb of Guildford.
Guildford has the lowest flight path in Perth, meaning the planes are really obvious and fly very low….Michael Day
Guildford has the lowest flight path in Perth, meaning the planes are really obvious and fly very low. However, if you live there, you have become unaware to the turbulent rumble heard over head which sounds regularly.
Michael uses this as a metaphor illustrating our ability to neglect and omit the tragedies in life which so often happen around us, while we live a counterfeit reality.
Guildford steals the instrumentation of traditional folk music such as the Banjo and Ukulele and amalgamates them into an Indie Rock Ensemble.
‘Guildford’ was recorded at Sam Wylde’s Fable Productions and mastered by James Newhouse at Real2Reel Studios.
Session musicians include: Grace Loughton on Backing Vocals, Ben Humphrys on Electric Guitar, Rhyan Lyndon-James on Bass, and Dave Rajendram on Drums.
LaunchDate: 29th of May 2020 at the Four5Nine bar
