Exclusive: Half Way Records launch The Half Way Sessions, first up: Press Club
A rad new series that will also record artists live to tape.
The Half Way sessions is the brain child of Half Way Records head honcho Luke Yeoward and director Agostino Soldati, a new series filming live recordings with emerging and established artists, which are also recorded live to tape: "We create an environment in which an artist can be seen and heard in their most raw, unedited and personal." With a recording process that's 100% analog, we're not only looking forward to seeing what comes from it, but excited to jump on board to share first cab off the rank - Press Club.
The Melbourne-based outfit recently wrapped up a huge eight week national tour with The Smith Street Band, and have already announced their own headline tour (dates for which can be found down the bottom). The tour is in support of their fantastic debut album Late Teens, a wonderfully honest and raw slice of Australian indie-rock, one that in the spirit of Half Way Sessions was also recorded with minimal overdubs, keeping it as authentic as possible.
