Melbourne indie label Tremorverse Records unearths new single ‘Stationary’ from jazz funk outfit Birdsnake featuring guest vocalists POOKIE, FL-Smiley and N’Fa Jones
Freshly squeezed independent record label Tremorverse Records is thrilled to reveal the first taste of a new upcoming compilation album, with the latest Birdsnake collaborative track ‘Stationary’ (feat. POOKIE, FL-Smiley, N’fa Jones). Following the announcement of a first-of-its-kind partnership with Box Hill Institute and Sing Sing East Recording Studios, Tremorverse Records was set up by Merida Sussex, musician and co-founder of successful London based label Stolen Recordings. The label was launched headfirst onto Australia’s indie label scene with their genre-spanning debut release One in October 2018. The 11-track compilation album features an impressive selection of diverse acts including Hobson’s Bay Coast Guard, Girl Germs, The Grogans, Dr Sinha’s Jazz Lobotomy and more. Now, Tremorverse is honoured to announce the arrival of ‘Stationary’, the first lifted track from the label’s forthcoming second comp to be released later this year.
Teaming up on a session project at Sing Sing East Studios with emerging hip-hop artists POOKIE, FL-Smiley and Cool Out Sun’s N’fa Forster-Jones, six-piece outfit Birdsnake emerged from an intensive day in the studio with the effortlessly cool jam, ‘Stationary’. Settled atop the act’s signature jazz/funk/soul/contemporary influenced rhythms, lies the punchy opening hook of Naarm-based MC POOKIE and the smooth, nonchalant verses of rapper FL-Smiley. Alongside the seasoned swag of Aria Award-winning artist N’Fa Jones, the team-up makes for a sonic blend of R&B, hip-hop and soul. Produced by Joel Ma and Aaron Choulai and mixed by Matt Voigt and Andy Phillips, ‘Stationary’ is a mantric groove that delves into self-love, personal growth and spiritual guidance.
