Angie McMahon / Shares 'Silver Springs' Cover With DIY Video and Announces More UK & Ireland Tour Dates
Currently on the road supporting Hozier across North America, Angie McMahon will arrive in the UK and Ireland later in November to support Julia Jacklin and will also play a handful of winter festival dates.
This will be the Australian solo artist’s first time in the UK since the release of her debut album, ‘Salt’ earlier this year, two singles from which have since reached Gold sales status in Angie’s home country.
2019 has been a pivotal year for Angie and her music, kickstarted by her winning of the prestigious Grulke Prize for best break out artist at SXSW. On a post-SXSW day off, whilst still in the southern states, Angie and her band decided to visit Shoebox Studios in Nashville where her friend Ben Cramer (who performs as Old Sea Brigade) bases himself. In the studio they ended up recording an impromptu version of ’Silver Springs’ by Fleetwood Mac, a song which regularly features in Angie’s set. The take was recorded on camera phones of various quality propped up around the studio and what was originally intended as a bit of a keep sake footage to add to Angie’s US tour diary has now become a lo-fi music video for this special session. In some shots you can even see the phones vibrating with the kick drum and bass.
Speaking about the recording process, Angie shares: “We’ve been playing this cover since we started to be a band, and recorded it this year visiting a friend’s studio in Nashville. We filmed the take on all of our different camera phones, edited together by Charlotte Abroms. Feels nice to capture something without stressing over it. Thanks to Ben Cramer and Owen Lewis for recording this and giving us such a nice visit to their studio, to Charlotte for the idea, to Stevie Nicks for my favourite song.”
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Lianne La Havas, Big Thief, and Tom Waits, Angie’s music shifts between gravelly intimacy and pounding rock, covering the full dynamic spectrum. There is strength in Angie’s fragility, her powerful performances swell with vulnerability and a self-deprecating sense of humour. There’s also an authenticity and humanness in her music that has been connecting with audiences far and wide, Angie’s music has the ability to bring you tears and slowly help you piece things back together.
