"Eliot Fish has done a fine job of weaving intricate and spiraling guitars together with just the right amount of thought and poignancy" - Nat Salvo, FasterLouder.com.au
All songs written by Eliot Fish.
All instruments and vocals performed by Eliot Fish*
* Except for backing vocal on Here in Nowhere by Natasha Penot (Grisbi)
Recorded by Fabien Tessier at Studio Le Séchoir, Bréhémont, France, and mixed by producer David Trumpmanis (The Church, Sarah Blasko, Something For Kate) at Spacejunk in Sydney, Australia.
The six carefully crafted songs on TRICK OF LIGHT take us on a melancholy journey that begins with the melodic warmth of “Here in Nowhere” (featuring Natasha Penot of French pop band Grisbi on backing vocals) and transfixes with the swell of a storm in “The Wind Has Carried You Out”. The mysterious layers of “Missionary” are a lament to someone emotionally lost, while the title track, “Trick of Light”, describes physical loss in the death of a friend. The Johnny Marr-like guitar lines in “Hate to Love” guide us through the irresistible nature of love, and the swirling arpeggios of “Splattered Black” spell out what it’s like to emerge unscathed from love gone wrong.
