Art of Fighting return with their first album in twelve years. Entitled Luna Low, the album is to be released on Friday 7th June via Remote Control Records.
They worked with drummer Marty Brown at the helm (who has recorded Clare Bowditch, Jen Cloher and others), first taking advantage of the natural reverb at Brunswick’s Masonic Hall, then at Marty’s Standalone Studios in Coburg. The album was mixed by Marty and mastered by US icon Greg Calbi.
Of the finished album, Art of Fighting says: “Luna Low is not an autobiographical work, more a proxy by which we can reflect on some of our own could-have-beens and would-have-beens. It’s about dreams past becoming reduced dreams of the present, ageing and lifestyle colliding, growing up after growing up, and perhaps, the first set of AOF songs that approach these themes with a sometimes playful eye.”
After twelve years, Luna Low makes it seem as if Art Of Fighting just had a brief nap and awoke refreshed, to make their most compelling, rewarding and affecting album yet.
