To coincide with the release of Weight_Falls, Churchill is pleased to announced the “Weight_Falls” European Album Tour which will see him hit various cities in Europe throughout November/December this year. Tickets are on sale now!
What sets “Weight_Falls” apart from Churchill’s previous releases is its sense of adventure and unpredictability, characterised by chopped-up drum samples, unusual harmonies and moments of disarming lyrical honesty.
Churchill credits two years spent “growing up” for much of the shift in sound. After touring “Silence/Win” around Australia in 2014 and 2015, he embarked on a series of high-adrenaline overseas trips that included performances at the Glastonbury and Telluride Blues Festivals and adventures in the Peruvian Andes and along the coast of Sri Lanka.
“I worked really hard on the follow-up record for a long time,” he explains – “and it sounded good. But some very subtle layer of my consciousness was saying to me, ‘It’s not all that inspiring.’”
So Churchill picked up his guitar. He wrote a second version of the album in one frenetic week, then spent two months piecing together the new recordings with ARIA-winning producer Ian Pritchett in a garage in Sydney. The resulting LP, “Weight_Falls”, is a kaleidoscopic collection that is bound to take both fans and critics by surprise.
