Half A Cow Records presents, ‘Before we finally meet’, the new album from Agnes Kain: singers, songwriters and musicians Chanelle Afford and Stefan Simunic from Sydney, Australia. This is their third album, following 2009’s ‘Across the ocean grey’ and their debut ‘Keep walking or I’ll kill you’ (2007).

Before we finally meet’ marks a progressive shift in sound for the indie pop folk duo as they make some noise with electric guitars and new live band – Lee Carey on drums and Simeon Johnson on cello. The album also features bass by Nic Dalton (Lemonheads, Nic Dalton and his Gloomchasers, Sneeze, Godstar), trumpet and guitar looping by Jochen Gutsch (Hinterlandt), violin by Eleanor Grey and vocals by Evan Purdey (Twin Vickers).

Recorded and produced by Agnes Kain in their lounge room, kitchen and laundry, this album is about mysterious disappearances, housekeeping, Reykjavik, birds crying in branches, murky water, a threatening moonlight and longing to be the light in your eyes. It was mixed by Sean Carey at Trackdown Studios in Camperdown, Sydney, and mastered by Steve Smart at Studios 301 in Alexandria, Sydney.


released November 23, 2012
