As summer officially rolls on, be sure to check out the tropical bliss of Fishing‘s debut album Shy Glow!
Sydney-based Fishing, composed of beatmaking duo Russell Fitzgibbon and Doug Wright, are finally releasing their debut album, Shy Glow. The group has released multiple singles and remixed tracks for artists such as Flume, Cloud Control, Teen Daze, Dominant Legs & Alpine; but have never released a proper album, until now. Their new album is a map of their journeys across the globe spanning from Chicago to London, to their home base of Sydney. The bouncy, enticing opening track “Recoup” creates a world of warm textures and rich, vivid colors. Fishing’s sweet hypnagogic-pop is exemplified by the tracks “Pacific Ocean” and “Racer.” The breezy electronic layers and warm arrangements become more entrancing with every listen, making them the album’s most essential tracks.
“There’s a brightness to what they do — a mix of Avalanches-style sampledelia, Animal Collective-like psych-pop, and contemporary beat-work — and also a certain amount of intimacy”
