Obscura Hail Doomer

That's the band and the new song

Roger Bowie

Today, Obscura Hail - the Melbourne-via-Wollongong indie rock trio, helmed by musician Sean Conran, announce their new EP Siren which will be out Friday 18 September via Dot Dash / Remote Control, digitally and as a Siren EP / Zero EP combined 12" vinyl. New single Doomer is the first taste off the EP,

"Born in the age of information, the Doomer is fatalistic, apathetic, a symptom of the overwhelming awareness of suffering outside of their control." explains Conran. "The instrumentation is our heaviest yet, to give a voice to the guilt, shame, anger and frustration that comes with feeling powerless.

Using Obscura Hail as a vessel, Conran is externalising memory for the sake of preservation. Over an untold number of late-night recording sessions in an evolving ad-hoc home studio, Conran has amassed a rich musical archive of alternating styles and an obsessive commitment to songwriting as a craft.

(Whatever, we think it's great)
