LOVER’s new bop “Eagle To The Prey” is one of the newest singles to grace my inbox this week, and its a sweet and silky exit to the summer as we ease into the cooler months. One of Sydney, Australia’s brightest shining stars, LOVER is also one of the newest signees to Mammal Sounds Records.
Personally known as Oliver Kirby, he recently moved into a house with a few of his talented artist friends whom he’s been collaborating with. He actually came together with two of his roommates, Tanssi & Oh Boy, to polish this new gem.
To hear him say it:
“I’d been working with my housemates Oh Boy & Tanssi, trying to find a production lane that was unique to me, and suited my song-writing style. This track in particular was a beat created from a guitar sample that Tanssi chopped up in Ableton, which we then looped and added a hip-hop drum overlay. I felt this was a new perspective to the types of beat I had previously written with, and it opened the door for me to write songs in a different way. We also spent a lot of time on different vocal takes and styles – trying to find the balance between an RnB vocal and a pop vocal approach. Once we were happy with the vocal takes, the mixing process started and from there mastering, all of it being done in the same room it was recorded and written in.”
