Six new wave melancholic, electro-pop songs form Capsule, the latest EP release from prolific Australian music producer and composer, Cooperblack (aka Jeremy Conlon).

Moving away from the muscular, studio-based dance of Return To the Big Eyes (2015), here Cooperblack infuses his unique synthetic pop with a plethora of dark, moody “found sounds” gathered from an extended sojourn to wintery Europe – the frozen polar opposite of his desert home in Yuendemu, Northern Territory.

Composed and gathered where the sun has limited potential, Capsule’s distinct sound was ultimately sculpted and shaped beneath the harsh, endless sun of Central Australia. It’s the perfect counterpoint – and combination.

From ice-breaking ferry rides in Helsinki to lonely flag poles clinking in the icy Berlin wind, these found sounds blend into deep electronic ambient soundscapes. Layered over Cooperblack’s deeply personal lyrics, these sonic elements of ‘random coincidence’ add a particularly haunting quality to his pop-driven compositions.

It’s all about space, and place.

Synths, drum machines, distant voices and the harsh European winter create the distinct sound of Capsule, another excellent and unique musical foray by one of Australia’s most progressive musicians.
