Tinpan Orange - LOVE IS A DOG
Released and shipping from April 8th 2016
“Great arrangements, interesting production.
It's like being washed over by a waterfall of melody.”
★★★★ -Dom Alessio, Triple J
“The intoxicating romance of this exceptional band can't be contained…”
Critically acclaimed Melbourne indie-folk darlings Tinpan Orange are one of Australia’s most loved brother-sister outfits. With the ethereal and mesmerising Emily Lubitz at the helm, joined by her brother, guitarist Jesse Lubitz and violin virtuoso Alex Burkoy, Tinpan Orange’s 60’s inspired folk has a melancholy, candid and somewhat playful edge.
Emily’s distinctly angelic voice coupled with Jesse’s harmonies and sensitive guitar melodies and Alex’s flamboyant strings continue to occupy that sad and heart-warming world that is distinctly Tinpan Orange.
Over the Sun (2012) saw the band win Triple J Unearthed with their catchy folk-pop single Barcelona. In 2013 Over the Sun was nominated for The Age Music Victoria Genre Award for Best Folk Roots Album. The band gained further mainstream attention after Emily’s voice was used on the famous Metro advertisement and one of the greatest viral sensations the world had seen, Dumb Ways to Die (2013).
Having shared the stage with Martha Wainright, The Cat Empire, The Waifs, Jen Cloher and Husky, as well as playing some of the world’s biggest music festivals nationally and abroad including WOMAD, Laneway Festival, Calgary Folk Festival and Winnipeg Folk Festival, Tinpan Orange’s music has grown them a fanbase that stretches across the globe.
Tinpan Orange celebrate the release of their brand new album ‘LOVE IS A DOG’ on April 8th 2016.
