Check out new single Combo, premiered today on Indie Shuffle! Get your own copy via Chapter’s Bandcamp!

Melbourne exploratory synth-pop adventurers Pikelet announce launch dates for third album Calluses, due for release on Chapter Music on 16 August 2013. The follow-up to 2010’s Australian Music Prize-shortlisted Stem. Calluses is a darker, denser beast than its predecessors, recorded, mixed and mastered with John Lee (Lost Animal, Mountains In the Sky). From the post-apocalyptic eeriness of Pressure Cooker, to the 60s Euro space-jazz of Forward Motion, to the frenetic introspection of first single Combo, the album is bold, ambitious and layered, a record that rewards repeated listens with subtle details and hypnotic depths.

Pikelet

Pikelet is Evelyn Morris, a musical wunderkind raised in the outer suburbs of Melbourne who first ventured onto local stages as a hardcore-obsessed drummer, serving on sticks in such heavy-hitting Melbourne institutions as Baseball and True Radical Miracle. But a few years ago, something tickled Evelyn’s brain in a funny way and she felt compelled [...]

Pikelet CD

By   Released May 2007

Engineered and produced by US uber-producer Casey Rice (Tortoise, Sea & Cake, Ben Lee and countless others), Pikelet’s debut self-titled album is a gorgeous, multi-tiered work of swirling and shifting melody, layered harmonies and charming story-telling, almost entirely performed by Evelyn herself. A uniquely assured and distinctive debut.
