Hurtling Through - Flying Out


Hurtling Through

Flying Nun Records


Tiny Ruins is back with a new EP - Hurtling Through.Out on Flying Nun Records, the EP was recorded and produced in collaboration with US-based Hamish Kilgour, ofThe Clean.

Hollie Fullbrook (Tiny Ruins) first met Kilgour in New York in the late fall of 2013, where they spent a week performing a number of shows together. On the final day of Fullbrooks stay, they recorded two songs in a basement studio with engineer & producer Gary Olson. A year later, Fullbrook found herself back in New York after a long stint of touring, and the pair recorded an additional four track. The result is a seven-track EP of varied folk-based, including two W.B. Yeats poems set to music, as well as a field recording of a late-night Brooklyn walk with Kilgour taking a silver spoon to the railings and lamp-posts of the borough. Hurtling Through sees Tiny Ruins on acoustic and electric guitars, with her distinctive vocals captured in a raw & natural form. With, Kilgour on drums and an eclectic array of percussion, providing new elements and energy to Fullbrooks haunting folk songs.

Working with Hamish definitely brought different elements to the sound, brought different things out of me, but its hard to know in what way - maybe thats for the listener to decide. Lyrics written on the fly & recorded with more ragged energy, maybe….Like all the recording Ive done, it feels very personal. To use an image from one of the tracks, songs are sort of petrified thoughts, and so its a continuation and expansion of whats come before. Hamish made the EP what it is, really. He got me there, and then pushed the songs to greater places with his vision, and that kind of driving push The Clean are known for. Tiny Ruins.
