THE BEAUTIFUL FEW presents THE NIGHTS YOU DID YOUR HAIR, their first studio album since If You Change Your Cityâ¦Youâre Sure To Change Your Style (Album of the Year, Bronius Zumeris, Beat Magazine, 2005). This time, however, theyâve got sixteen guest vocalists in tow embellishing a new suitcase of lyrical pop tunes that can be funny, sad, romantic and poignant; sometimes all in the one song.
Featuring vocalists: Oliver Mann, Rob McDowell (Plastic Palace Alice), Marcus Teague (Deloris), Mikel Simic (Mikelangelo & The Black Sea Gentlemen), Amaya Laucirica and Anthony Atkinson amongst others - with the gorgeous vocals of Marisa Fazio (Continental Kissing) leading the way on first single, Stars above The Sea, the album is an fantastically eclectic yet very cohesive work.
Lyricist and producer Kieran Carroll takes up the story:
The idea for this album came to me back in 2003. I wasnât going to appear on vocals for Metal for Melbourne & other stories â but somehow changed my mind or had it changed. Turn the clock to 2006 and with Troy Parker and I continuing to write, the time was ripe to make The Beautiful Few a true collective on CD. The vocalists chosen are an assortment of people prominent in the Melbourne music scene over various time periods. They are all people whose work Iâve admired for a long time or am currently very admiring of.
THE NIGHTS YOU DID YOUR HAIR will transport the listener from the hilarity of cranky neighbours (Mikel Simicâs The Grouch) to worlds of seaside heartbreak (Oliver Mannâs Atlantic Edge) to the midnight pulse of romantic expectation (Marisa Fazioâs Stars Above The Sea) to early evenings waiting for a girlfriend to get ready (Julitha Ryan & Brett Poliness on the title track). These are familiar worlds but evoked in a way that makes you think of how some moments in life have faded from memory too easily. Itâs much like rediscovering a series of photos you havenât seen in years, bringing both joy and slight tinges of sadness. As âsmall picture maestrosâ (Sandra Bridekirk, The Australian, 2003) and buoyed by Tony Cornishâs bright, crisp production, THE NIGHTS YOU DID YOUR HAIR is a lovely release from a band who have continually kept their work vivid, bright and new.
