Weight_Falls

To coincide with the release of his new album Weight_Falls, Kim Churchill is pleased to announce the Weight_Falls Australian Album Tour.Those familiar with Churchill will recognise signature elements in these new recordings: intricate guitar work, intuitive vocal melodies and a wonderful feeling of space and warmth. What sets Weight_Falls apart from Churchill’s previous releases is its sense of adventure and unpredictability, characterised by chopped-up drum samples, unusual harmonies and moments of disarming lyrical honesty.

Churchill credits two years spent “growing up” for much of the shift in sound. After touring Silence/Win around Australia in 2014 and 2015, he embarked on a series of high-adrenaline overseas trips that included performances at the Glastonbury and Telluride Blues Festivals and adventures in the Peruvian Andes and along the coast of Sri Lanka.

Churchill spent 18 months working on the follow-up to his breakout LP, Silence/Win, but the new record – polished and accessible – didn’t quite feel right. At the last minute, Churchill decided to throw it out and start again. “I worked really hard on the follow-up record for a long time,” he explains – “and it sounded good. But some very subtle layer of my consciousness was saying to me, ‘It’s not all that inspiring.’” So Churchill picked up his guitar. He wrote a second version of the album in one frenetic week, then spent two months piecing together the new recordings with ARIA-winning producer Ian Pritchett in a garage in Western Sydney. The resulting LP is a kaleidoscopic collection that is bound to take both fans and critics by surprise.

Happening Saturday 16th September 7:30pm at The Street Theater, 15 Childers Street, Acton.
