Their fifth album ‘Love is a Dog’ with it’s razor-sharp melodies was most recently lauded “a strikingly assured album” by Rolling Stone Magazine.
A bit of gorgeous sounding glitter here…
“Making for a strikingly assured album, the deep dives into heart-sleeved honesty equally matched by the cinematic stretches of detailed, string arrangements and brooding folk-pop features.”
Love Is A Dog is a complex, luscious offering from this seasoned trio. Opulent string arrangements, intricate guitar hooks and unforgettable vocal melodies from lead vocalist Emily Lubitz all dictate the dark, rambling nature of the record.
The album was recorded by the trio with the in-studio help of Daniel Farrugia (Angus & Julia Stone, Missy Higgins) on drums and Jules Pascoe (Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Racketts) on bass guitar. The new LP was produced by the band in collaboration with Harry James Angus (The Cat Empire, Jackson Jackson) and mixed by the renowned Adam Selzer (M.Ward, She & Him, Jolie Holland) and recorded by Matthew Neighbour (Missy Higgins).
Having shared the stage with Martha Wainright, The Cat Empire, The Waifs, Jen Cloher and Husky, as well as playing some of the world’s biggest music festivals nationally and abroad including WOMAD, Laneway Festival, Calgary Folk Festival and Winnipeg Folk Festival, Tinpan Orange’s music has grown them a fanbase that stretches across the globe.
