Born out of Buck 65 collaboration, Aqua Alta, announce the UK release of their debut album
The pioneers of undersea dream pop, Aqua Alta, announce the UK release of their eagerly anticipated eponymous debut album on September 30th 2014 through Star House Collective. “You Were A Kid Too” is the first track to be taken off the album.
Aqua Alta is the collaboration between producer Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Jerry Granelli), Charles Austin (recording engineer, guitar/bass for Superfriendz, Al Tuck, Buck 65) andJenn Grant (Juno nominated singer and songwriter). Hailing from Halifax, Nova Scotia Aqua Alta came to fruition after the three artists met while taking part in the making of Buck 65’s 2011 album ’20 Odd Years’.
Austin describes Aqua Alta’s musical direction as “simply to make country music for aliens.” Shimmering vocals glisten a top of driving beats and churning synth pop noises led by the pair of Austin and Campbell, while Grant handles lyrics and vocal melodies. Together their electro love songs provide the perfect listening remedy for the voyage if you so happened to become lost at sea.
Aqua Alta was self produced and recorded Echo Chamber in Halifax, Canada and is set for release on September 30th 2014 in the UK.
