Family Fold’s sophomore album Ashfield Skyline is out now, featuring new single ‘Molly Meldrum’s Eyes’ and lead track, ‘Crying In The Carwash’.
The 11 songs of Ashfield Skyline showcase Paul Andrews’ exceptional prowess with lyrics and melody. As one of Sydney’s finest ‘under the radar’ songwriters, he has delivered his most assured album to date with the guidance of Nashville-based producer, engineer and musician, Brad Jones.
Paul says,“Unbeknownst to me Brad Jones had produced several of my favourite records of all time – Josh Rouse’s 1972 and Australian singer-songwriter Butterfly Boucher’s Flutterby – so when the door opened, I jumped at the chance to work with him. I’d give Brad about 10 songs, he’d choose two. I’d give him another 10, he’d pick three more. It was a tough process, but it pushed me harder than ever before, and I think the album is better for it.”
Current single ‘Molly Meldrum’s Eyes’ is a nod to famous Countdown presenter and music industry icon, Ian “Molly” Meldrum. It is cut from the same easy, laid back Americana cloth of Wilco’s ‘Being There’, the Jayhawks’ ‘Hollywood Town Hall’, and Gold Smog’s ‘Weird Tales’.
