Hedge Fund – True Romance – Single Review

The Australian synth-rock outfit Hedge Fund released the single True Romance on the 16th.

Hedge Fund - True Romance

Hedge Fund

Having regularly featured since their introduction in 2015, though not for over a year now, True Romance finds Hedge Fund in more introspective mood than music of theirs previously shared.

The gap in new material and the more sadcore reflection are due to the same reasons. A tumultuous year has seen the death of a father and the breakdown of a marriage for the lead singer Will Colvin, resulting in a lyric that contemplates the loss of the most important people in ones life and the associated frustration, sense of failure and feeling of desperate isolation, yet through the dour thoughts the music is of comforting embrace as the instruments pulse through the speakers as the synth floats listlessly, creating a cathartic moment of sadness.

True Romance – Single – Hedge Fund is available on iTunes.*

Hedge Fund – Hot & Lonely – Single Review

Always a pleasure to return to the Australian indie-rock quintet Hedge Fund.

Hedge Fund - Hot & Lonely

Their latest track Hot & Lonely surfaced less than a couple of hours ago – though not due for official release until the 18th.

True to their record over the past couple of years they have featured on the site, Hot & Lonely has a different sound to previous material in a song that contemplates the push and pull of being in love in a track that aurally threads through the highs and lows of relationships with a melancholic underpinning fed by forlorn bass with a haunting desolate vocal providing the isolated context to the just under three minute piece.

Every-time I return to Hedge Fund they have a different sound on offer, each delivered with style and panache and What You’re Hiding continues that trend.

An opportunity for those who haven’t yet seen Hedge Fund live is being proffered with seven gigs scheduled in various spots in Australia between the 24th of June and the 30th of July. Given their burgeoning number of fans it would come as no surprise to find this mini-tour, in support of the release of the single, comes up with a few more dates; Though what mix of sounds they will offer is of conjecture.

What You’re Hiding plays a more prominent synth than much of what has preceded and the track drifts gradually around the ears, slowly gathering compression as the just under three and three quarter trippy flow of stoned-stoner eases its way around the room.

Hedge Fund – Summer’s Getting Shorter – Single Review

The Australian indie-rock quartet Hedge Fund surfaced with a new single a few hours ago.

Hedge Fund - Summers Getting Shorter

Hedge Fund

In a more progressive psychedelic mood than previous material featured Summer’s Getting Shorter opens with a cloudy sky which gradually clears to reveal a hazy sun as the the track develops. This is an interesting development by Hedge Fund as the composition unveils a more considered and complex construct than they have allowed themselves to previously shine a light upon.

The instrumentation and electronics are given extended work out delivering a track with melodies which, like a chameleon, recalibrate themselves giving Summer’s Getting Shorter an organic presence as patterns and shapes shift imperceptibly around the room whilst the vocal too, is allowed to extend range as it, curls around the music.

Given this new development it will be interesting to find where Hedge Fund head next. I am already looking forward to the next track being revealed.
