Dorsal Fins - New Track | Debut Live Show

BY Higher Plains | 25-Feb-2014
DORSAL FINS ANNOUNCE NEW TRACK 'FELL' AND DEBUT LIVE SHOW. In the final weeks of 2013 Dorsal Fins dropped the debut track & video 'Nothing Left To Hide', featuring the vocals of Eagle and the Worm's Jarrad Brown. Since then, Dorsal Fins, headed up by Saskwatch's Liam McGorry have been extremely busy in the studio finishing up tracks and preparing for their first ever live show.

Dorsal Fins will launch their debut 12" vinyl release Gripless at Melbourne's Shebeen Bandroom on Thursday April 3rd. The very excellent Jacky Winter, Martin King (DJ) and Stu Mackenzie (DJ) will be supporting on the night.

Lifted from Gripless is the new track 'Fell' and stars the alluring vocals of Ella Thompson (The Bamboos).

Dorsal Fins bio:

The purveyors of this curious brew are Dorsal Fins, headed up by Liam McGorry, the Melbourne based go-to-guy trumpeter and songwriter of our finest soul collective, Saskwatch. McGorry has setup Dorsal Fins as a studio and live project, working with a host of friends and admired collaborators such as Jarrad Brown, Ella Thompson, Richard Bradbeer, Sam Raines, Rob Muinos, Joe Cope, Olaf Scott, Ross Beaton and Will Morrissey.

While many local electronic influenced contemporaries are working with discrete, sectioned units of sound, Dorsal Fins are instead focused on crafting gutsy renditions of the traditional 'song': top-notch concept, melody, and structure combined in a single offering with rich instrumentation and a bevy of well-produced sounds. It's a tantalising and rewarding listen. Dorsal Fins are set to bring enviable class and fearlessness with the release of their debut 12" Gripless EP.
