Cody Munro Moore, Dinosaur City Records co-founder and singer/guitarist in Big White, shares his first official single in over four years, ‘Bulli Beach’.
‘Bulli Beach’ was recorded, mixed and mastered at Stranded Studios, Bellambi, a full-service recording studio which Munro Moore built and co-founded with bandmate Bowen Shakallis.
While Munro Moore’s debut album Perfume Nightmare fused post-punk sensibilities with new wave and Chicago house influence, ‘Bulli Beach’ sees Cody cast aside his drum machines and synthesisers in favour of acoustic guitar, organ and drums.
On his inspiration behind the track, Cody says:
“It was the summer of 2021. Friends in Thirroul couldn’t get houses because of the influx of those escaping life in the city. There were a lot of characters, friends or otherwise, camping down by the beach. Some had a choice to be there in campervans with television sets blaring. Others not so much, their sedans spilling earthly possessions as they’d look bleakly out from the boot in the early morning light. Either way, it seemed to be a way of life and I liked that.”
Cody Munro Moore shared an acoustic, live take on 2017 single ‘No Matter How Hard’ last week. The original single was taken from his 9-track debut album, Perfume Nightmare, which landed feature album on FBi Radio, 2SER and 4ZZZ, was played on triple j, praised by the likes of ToneDeaf, Happy and The Music, and added to a string of influential Apple Music playlists.
