“Great Beauty started writing itself for me on a day in Istanbul. I was walking around with Harry, and we were in between the two big Mosques, and we heard the call to prayer. It was a real musical moment, it felt like a call and response, and it was almost improvisational. It just reminded me of that wonderful, exotic, unexplainable feeling you get when you’re traveling with music.” Felix
Our new song Great Beauty is out now! Listen here 🎵
We managed to dodge border closures in recent months to get into the studio to make music together. And we are very happy to now be able to share it with you.
We are missing playing to you live, and know recorded music isn’t ever quite as good as the real thing. But in the absence of being able to get to your city, delivering new music straight from our instruments into your ears is the best we can do for now.
“Cristina helped write the song Going to Live and she also sings on it. When I write Spanish songs, because I’m not a native speaker, I come up with a melody and chords and gibberish lyrics… 🎶 🎶 🎶… and then I say, ‘Cristina, I’ve written this song it’s about a sadness and a joy I feel from not being in Spain and I want you to help write some Spanish lyrics for it.”
Going to Live out 09.07.2021 at midnight in your city. Follow/like our new playlist: Into The Night, which will feature Going to Live and Great Beauty.
“We were in the UK about to head to Spain in March (2020) when the whole Covid situation started, and we had to cancel that tour because the world went crazy. We got one of the last flights out and came here to Australia, and we all had to quarantine for two weeks. I had just built this studio… and I wrote the bones of Going To Live…” Felix

Covid-19 has prevented us from doing a lot of things we would usually do in the past year+, but it will never stop us bringing the music to YOU. We wish you could have been there, but you can join us on YouTube for the lounge room viewing of our Summer set Live At The Briars, Australia.
You can watch the show HERE.Dara Munnis Photography
