It’s that sound you hear when you’re out walking the dog and the serenity is interrupted by building construction noise that drills into your head like a hangover turned up to eleven. Wave after wave of steel pylons hammered into the ground making your back teeth rattle... It’s the noise that wakes you from your sleep as the train in the next suburb slews by in the middle of the night... or the heavy door that slams and reverberates in the fire escape at work as you slip out early before anyone notices that you’re gone... Always with an ear open to the world, Phill McKenna was recently awarded a ‘Creative Sparks’ grant through The Brisbane City Council & Arts QLD, and tasked with creating an original album, built piece by piece out of random, found sounds recorded around urban Brisbane, Australia. Lovingly stitched together, these field-recordings created the beds and rhythm tracks for a new swag of songs; paving the way for the anticipated second album from Phill McKenna & The Water Signs. Three years in the making, the creative song writing team of Phill McKenna & Clare Kildea and producer Dave Carter worked tirelessly combining their folk-based songs around the rhythm and soundscape beds, producing a stunning 10 track album and cementing Phill McKenna & Clare Kildea as premium songsmiths in a city overflowing with celebrated writers and artists.
