Womb Announce New EP 'Holding A Flame' + Nationwide Tour

Womb Announce New EP 'Holding A Flame' + Nationwide Tour

Chris Cudby / Wednesday 2nd June, 2021 10:38AM

Since we featured Sydney sibling duo Lime Cordiale on the site just yesterday, it feels serendipitous to share today's excellent news that Pōneke sibling trio Womb have announced their forthcoming Holding a Flame EP will be launching digitally on June 23rd via Flying Nun Records. Recorded and produced by the band and Bevan Smith (Signer), this will be the first release via the legendary Aoteaoa imprint from Gemini twins Charlotte Forrester and Haz Forrester and their Leo sister Georgette Brown, a significant occasion they'll be marking with a four date nationwide tour this July. We can't wait to hear the Womb's first collection since their dreamy debut album Like Splitting the Head from the Body entranced us all in 2018, don't miss them with all-star special guests at the dates below.

Originally envisaged as part of an album, Womb stated the four songs on Holding a Flame felt complete when placed together: “We recorded them on and off, while collectively listening to a whole lot of Cocteau Twins (as always), Blood Orange, and The Cure. As with most of our songs, these were written as a form of transmutation; turning discordant feelings into a unified sound as a means of getting through/past various states of being.”


Friday 2nd July — Dive, Dunedin (Ōtepoti) w/ i.e. crazy, Dale Kerrigan
Saturday 3rd July — Loons, Lyttelton (Ōhinehau) w/ Ben Woods, Ferby
Wednesday 21st July — Meow, Wellington (Pōneke) w/ i.e. crazy, Recitals, bornhag
