After months of recording and mixing, The Good Minus are primed to share their debut album. The record will be released on Friday the 27th of September and launched at the The Wesley Anne, Northcote on Friday the 11th of October with Anna Cordell supporting.
It is a collection of harmony rich and multi-layered songs. Recorded and engineered by the band’s bassist, David Kean, with tracks mixed by Greg J Walker (Machine Translations) and Rohan Sforcina (Head Gap Studios). The album was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music NY (Sufjan Stevens, Midlake, LCD Soundsystem).
The Good Minus are an all-singing, instrument-swapping power trio. Their songs feature intricate three-part harmonies with a style described as Grizzly Bear reimagining the songs of Elbow.
The Good Minus bring you their own inventive take on angular prog-pop. Matt Welch, David Kean and Stu Hazelman blend wildly different influences to create multi-layered arrangements, with three-part vocal harmonies and obscure yet groove-laden time signatures.
