Perth Australia’s Erasers have announced their sophomore album ‘Pulse Points’, which is set for release July 12th via Fire Talk / Pouring Dream. Along with the announcement, they’ve also shared a video for lead single Pass You in the Night. The album sees the duo continue their exploration of immersive, rhythmic and mood-driven music. Recorded at home and mastered by Lawrence English (Eluvium, Xiu Xiu, William Basinski). Check out the Pass You in the Night video via YouTube below.
Forming as a home recording project in 2009, Erasers (Rebecca Orchard, Rupert Thomas) released a steady flow of cd-rs, tapes and a 7″ before eventually releasing their debut full length ‘Stem Together’ in 2015 via Fire Talk. In 2017, the duo followed up with a release ‘Fault Lines’, originally recorded as a soundtrack commissioned by FBi radio’s Ears have Ears and in April 2019 released the five track EP ‘Forecast’.
In a live setting, Erasers have honed and refined their performance, sharing the stage with the likes of Low, Grouper, Acid Mothers Temple, Prince Rama, High Wolf and The Soft Machine as well as multiple shows with long time musical heroes My Disco, Love Of Diagrams and Pikelet. In 2016, the duo embarked on a two date New Zealand tour and in 2017 supported Methyl Ethel on their sold-out Australian tour.
After an extensive recording and mixing process, in July 2019 Erasers release their second full length ‘Pulse Points’ (via Fire Talk and Pouring Dream). The album sees the duo continue their exploration of immersive, rhythmic and mood-driven music. Recorded and mixed at home on Noongar Boodja and mastered by Lawrence English (Room 40) with cover artwork by Rebecca Orchard.
