Hurtling Through is the most recent release from songwriter Hollie Fullbrook, of Tiny Ruins. The EP is released 27th November in New Zealand and early 2016 in the US on Flying Nun Records. It is also released on Bella Union in the UK/Europe and Spunk Records in Australia.
Hurtling Through was recorded and produced in collaboration with US-based Hamish Kilgour, of The Clean. The two first met in New York City in the late fall of 2013, where they spent a week performing a number of shows together. On the final day of Fullbrook’s stay in New York, they recorded two songs in a basement studio with engineer & producer Gary Olson. A year later, Fullbrook was back in New York after a long stint of touring, and the pair recorded an additional four tracks, again with Olson. The result is a seven-track EP of folk-based songs. The record includes two W.B. Yeats poems set to music, as well as a field recording of a late-night Brooklyn walk - with percussionist Kilgour taking a silver spoon to the railings and lamp-posts of the borough. The tracks feature Fullbrook on acoustic and electric guitars, her distinctive vocals captured in a raw & natural form. Kilgour contributes on drums and an eclectic array of percussion, with guest appearances from Greg Vegas on saxophone, and Danny Tunick on bass and vibraphone.
