FOX + SUI Summer Storm/Moon Nightclub 7″ out now / Taboo EP out October 12 / Summer Storm video / Melbourne live shows by blak3b5

Following up on the digital release of their oceanic single Summer Storm, Melbourne dream pop duo Fox + Sui release their debut six track EP Taboo through Two Bright Lakes and Remote Control. Featuring the delicate 4-track production work of Melbourne’s Andras Fox and the vocal and lyrical talents of former Sydney resident Sui Zhen, the Taboo EP is a beautifully textured collaboration between two musical minds who first made contact as part of the Red Bull Music Academy in London 2010.

Following support slots with TuneYardsKnxwledgeLost AnimalOscar + Martin and collaborations with James Pants, Fox + Sui have honed a striking and colourful live show that has impressed audiences along the east coast of Australia and will be playing selected shows in Melbourne throughout October and November.

Moving from lounge pop through syncopated beats and library music, the EP is a taste of an exotic concoction brewing, with Fox + Sui at work on a full length album due out in 2013.

The Taboo EP is available on CD and for digital download from October 12th, 2012 and is available from all good record stores and online through Two Bright Lakes.

The limited edition two track 7” vinyl single featuring Summer Storm and Moon Nightclub, is available now through selected record stores in Melbourne and online through Two Bright Lakes.

Best of 2011 / Thanks for listening… by blak3b5

It’s that time of year again where we weigh up all that has happened this year, throw some opinions around, and celebrate all of the good things that transpired in 2011.  It’s been a very busy year for us at Two Bright Lakes, we want to thank everyone who came to shows, bought records and listened to the music that ‘s been released and said nice things about it, we really appreciate all of those things.

We put out some of our favourite records ever in the form of Collarbones, Oscar+Martin, Dream Kit, Batrider and Nick Huggins. We helped put on the the inaugural Sugar Mountain Festival in January, we braved endless rain for the Melbourne Music Week rooftop show, toured Virgo Four twice, took part in the Galactic Nights series, put on countless excellent local shows with musicians from near and far…we’re collecting an archive of photos and videos of shows from the year, and we’ll be posting them somewhere soon.
