Traffik Island, Leah Senior

Zak Olsen, lead singer and guitarist of ORB, HIEROPHANTS and THE FROWNING CLOWNS, new solo record out now on Flightless Records.

Leah Senior’s second album Pretty Faces pays homage to her dark folk roots while hinting at layers of pop and psychedelic undertones. The blinds are drawn and the songs are covered in a fine layer of dust; yet there is sunlight peaking through the gaps, a silver lining to a dusky tone and a sense of humour behind the tragedy.

The songs are sparsely arranged, Leah's finger picking providing a stark canvas for her unusual lyrical wit. Her luminous folk forms are complemented with old-world piano and guitar (Jesse Williams) and dulcet sibling harmonies (Andi Senior).

Pretty Faces will sit proudly in the Flightless roster of 2017, alongside releases by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, The Murlocs, The Babe Rainbow and ORB. Leah’s distinctive voice also features on King Gizzard’s upcoming release Murder of The Universe, as the omnipresent female consciousness who narrates the album.
