In his music, as in life, anything goes. For Eden Mulholland, sadness can be uplifting, desire be as impassive as a rock and memories be as suddenly vivid as the monitor lizards he occasionally sees on his runs up the hill behind his house. If all this sounds poetic then the cap fits. Even his take on pop music involves unexpected arrivals and departures, conventional and operatic voices, ripped apart rhythms and ethereal bridges, solidly resounding hooks and moody ascents. All of this and more is captured in his latest single “The New Old Fashioned” and is this is just a taste of what can be expected from his forthcoming album Hunted Haunted due out on October 23rd in Australia.

“The New Old Fashioned is one of those rare songs that was written very quickly, everything about the production seemed to fall into place like magic. Neil Baldock and I mixed this in the wee small hours, around 2 till 7am, and I think you can really feel that late night quality to it. A desperate loneliness when the world is asleep and it seems like you’re the only one alive. There are some strange and totally unbridled dynamics in the production, spooky vocal effects and a rich layering that builds with the songs crescendo. We had a lot of fun making this song” – Eden Mulholland on “The New Old Fashioned.”
