The Townhouses

The Townhouses is a deceptively pluralised name for what is fundamentally a solo project out of Melbourne, Australia. Although main artistic mastermind Leigh Hanna is accompanied by Hamish Brooke on trumpet in Backyard to create a dreamy atmospheric chillwave piece with a subtle hint of African musical influence.

Backyard fills out the musical spectrum in an enriching way; with the deep bass drums grounding the low-end of the frequency spectrum contrasting nicely with the glitchy lyric-less vocal line and hi-hat flutterings that occupy the mid and high sections respectively. Your ears will appreciate the variety of sounds used in the piece and how well The Townhouses has managed to fit them all neatly together in one beautiful package.
