SCRAPS

Brisbane “dehydrated disco” producer Laura Hill draws from a persuasive mood-board of 80’s hairdresser magazines bleaching in the desert, cubist synth-pop, and disaster fascination. Since her debut LP in 2011 – on grit institution Bedroom Suck – Hill’s synthesis of raw rhythms, sequencer intuition, and echo-soaked storytelling has honed and decayed, heat-waving between low-lidded new wave, woozy acid ballads, and alienated karaoke. Her latest album TTNIK were self-tracked at her home studio, allowing her to indulge accident and chance and disregard pressure and polish. Her live performances also capture this mood- manipulating live electronic romantica in a state of flux.
