Melbourne band Harmony officially commenced in legally binding terms in 2009, when Tom Lyngcoln (The Nation Blue) and Alex Kastaniotis (Remake Remodel) were married. Deciding to create new material, the two newlyweds would write and record a song each Saturday until they had enough for an album and a 7”. Somewhere along the line Jon Chapple (mclusky, Shooting At Unarmed Men) joined on bass. Early 2011, they released their debut “Cacophonous Vibes” 7”, which was superseded in July by the self-titled full length.
The album was recorded and mixed by Tom and Matt Voigt (Cat Power, The Nation Blue, Oh Mercy). Legendary guitarist Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello) also appears on the album, Tom describes this feat as a “high-water mark of my musical life”.
Harmony will launch said album in Sydney this Saturday 13th August at the Town Hall, Newtown with Epics and Hoodlum Shouts.
