about

A song cycle written for electronics, bass guitar, voice and the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ. Recorded live at the Melbourne Town Hall

Commissioned by the City of Melbourne, Trouble in the Air is a new song cycle composed for voice, bass guitar, electronics and the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ. The band describes the work as a "cold dream of uncertainty & rupture".

'Has there been a truer album title for the times we live in? Recorded live in 2017, New War's Trouble in the Air is their third album in a little over a decade but true to form, this Melbourne four-piece has again steered clear of any sense of convention and done their own thing, spectacularly.

The centrepiece here is Melbourne Town Hall's glorious four-storey high Grand Organ with Jesse Shepherd at the keys. These seven tracks ooze with a weighty, existential mood that's complimented by equally trippy rhythms and singer Chris Pugmire's post-punk howl'

★★★★ Album of the week - The Age
