DARK FAIR 'Off Into My Head' LP
Debut album from Melbourne's DARK FAIR!
Since forming in 2012 the project of two friends, Ramona Moore on guitar and Ellie Dunn on drums, have built a name for themselves with their idiosyncratic knack for writing brooding yet poppy rock songs, which has seen them release two EPs and play alongside the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Veruca Salt, Adalita and Jen Cloher. On their debut LP, Off Into My Head, the duo delivers ten tight and driving slabs of sonic alt-rock. Their ability to blend a decadent amount of grit and shimmery grunge pop is highlighted on the release, while exploring topics of mental illness, (“Off Into My Head”), gun violence (“Distance In The Line”), freedom from conformity (“Nothing Can Break Me”), and climate change. But it’s not all gloom - messages of hope, love and resilience underlie the tracks.
Co-produced by Adalita Srsen (Magic Dirt) and Marieca Page, Off Into My Head was recorded in multiple locations over the best part of a year and mixed by Lindsay Gravina (Rowland S Howard, The Living End).
