Brooklyn based Graph Rabbit, the duo of Austin Donohue (guitar, vocals) and Shy Kedmi (analogue synths), released their debut album Snowblind a couple of days ago via Butterscotch Records.
The album was produced by Allen Farmelo (The Cinematic Orchestra, Talk Normal, Mike Jorgensen of Wilco) and mastered by Valgeir Sigurðsson (Björk, Sigur Rós).
According to the press release, Snowblind “follows an unnamed character as he wanders through a surreal snow-scape, in and out of sleep, following birds through fields, arguing with a river and eventually just surrendering to the silence of snowfall.” In the words of Donohue “it’s like, what if Dorothy decided to kick off the ruby slippers and stay in the poppy field while it snowed?”
Graph Rabbit are currently touring the new album in America and they are performing it in its entirety using only analogue and acoustic equipment. Speaking about it, Kedmi explained this is “the only way we can really bring the world we’ve created, the world of Snowblind, to our audience.”
Coinciding with the album´s release, Graph Rabbit have premiered a video for the second delicate and enchanting single ´Make It Stop´. The video was directed by Christopher Vetur and filmed in a single shot. Watch it underneath and straight after listen to the beautiful first single ‘Only Fields’.
