Launch of new album 'OVER THE SUN' I wish I, wish I, wish I might/ carry me over the sea/ something about a bird in flight/ I want to bury a part of me - lamb - tinpan orange Special Guests MILES & SIMONE
OVER THE SUN, the highly ambitious new work from Tinpan Orange, sees the ‘folk darlings’ transplanted into the middle of some lost opera, third act, high drama all around, orchestra in flight, the drums of war rumbling…
Written firstly at home in Melbourne, as Emily’s pregnant belly grew, and later in the back of the Winnebago, in the wilds of Canada, at truckstops and beside frozen lakes, with a four-month old baby in tow, OVER THE SUN is a rich tapestry. And from the free-wheeling abandon of hit single ‘Barcelona’ to the high romance of the title track, Emily Lubitz’s voice is the thread of golden vapour, rising above the teacup.
The housewife casts her mind back, over the sun, through past loves, past lives, and all the crazy and foolish and wonderful things that people do, back to some original, ancient pain….
…. the housewife goes mad.
