Groove to gorgeous low-fi vintage soul jam G’day For It from Melbourne’s Little Elizabeth premiering tonight on WildnFree. A spicy slow-burner with sassy sax riffs and a sultry vocal, G’day For It is a Slum Sociable style jam with a sweet soul flavour.
Little Elizabeth give the following historical overview of the band’s roots. “Spawning from a sharehouse of like-minded creatives,” they say, “Little Elizabeth was inspired by a deep rooted love for all things lo-fi, centred around a vintage reel to reel four track tape recorder. We began recording, mixing & mastering a series of singles in-house to showcase our unique brand of quirky, steamy Australiana soul.”
Drummer Joe South reveals the production details behind the leisurely sound. “We record on a vintage 4-track reel to reel tape machine and use a little bit of digital and a little bit of analog during the editing process,” he says. “By doing this, we can reap the rewards of being able to easily post-edit takes while still ultimately recording in one take on tape.” Despite having moved on from their original sharehouse set up, the band still record, mix and master all of their music in the studio set up in lead singer Paddy’s room.
