Australia’s GOSSLING is quietly brewing a revolution against the status quo, all powered by delicate and sophisticated vocals. There’s no swagger here, no bravado, instead GOSSLING’s music proves the irresistible power of minimalism.
“I’m interested in music that stirs emotion,” says GOSSLING’s mastermind Helen Croome, about her latest album, Harvest of Gold. The debut LP follows the critically-lauded EPs which earned Croome accolades and airtime in Australia and activated a global audience, earning GOSSLING a stellar 2014 set at South-By-Southwest and performances in the UK too.
Raised in the country town of Wodonga, Croome’s musical career began when she moved to Melbourne. Named after her grandmother, GOSSLING became her moniker. She studied music and considered becoming a soundtrack composer. “I loved writing music for horror films,” she says. “A scary movie is made more terrifying because of the music and I love those themes with the lush string lines and melodies.”
The road to Harvest of Gold was a paradoxical journey. “I decided to go away to Tasmania,” she says, “I thought that I needed to go away and be by myself, being lonely and depressed, and that would be where I could write new material. So, I went away with my laptop and keyboard, got lonely and depressed, and didn’t write anything.” When she got back to Melbourne, that’s when her creativity exploded. “Melbourne is full of musicians, artists and lots of venues. And I feed off that energy. I need to be surrounded by creative people and bands, my family and friends to feel connected.”
Kate Boy, comprised of Australian singer-songwriter Kate Akhurst (vocals) and Swedish musicians Hampus Nordgren Hemlin, Oskar Sikow Engström, and Markus Dextegen, produced Northern Lights themselves. In addition to the title track, the EP includes a B-side, “In Your Eyes,” as well as two different remixes of the former. The first remix is a collaboration between Swedish solo act Taken By Trees and Los Angeles beat-maker Belief while the second is by the group Superhumanoids, also from Los Angeles.
Directed by SIKOW with additional animations by Oskar Gullstrand at NAÏVE, the video for “Northern Lights” has received over a half million views already, and the video for “In Your Eyes” has almost 200,000 views as well.
