Lights & Sirens

Released: 2007

Our plangent E-wah has been steadily gaining attention, playing shows with her much admired electric guitar "the Swan" and her lamplight companion "the Bear" around Melbourne with increasing velocity over the past year. Recently she's let another cat out of the bag with her third release, an 8 song album Lights and Sirens (2007).

Lights & Sirens is a restless dream rolling between queer lullabies and darker maunderings, intertwined with the sounds of a rainy backyard.

And if you think "lullabies" means E-wah's gone soft and settled down into the eiderdown you need to give Lights & Sirens a turn in your player because to the alert ears, the pounds of a neighbouring demolition may be audible, buried deep within the mix.
