about

Originally released on CD and 10" vinyl in 1999 by Candle (Aus) and Matinée (US).

Staring At The Sky began in Paris during the band's 1999 European tour. The band borrowed some instruments and recording gear, and for three grueling days locked themselves into a sixth-floor apartment on the Boulevard Voltaire, living on nothing but baguettes, coffee and red wine. Back home in Australia, and persevering with their new-found worldliness, they invited a few of their friends around to a backyard shed to polish the thing off — some horns here, some strings there, a little piano, an even smaller melodica they found in an op-shop in Finland. The end result is trés magnifique!: six understated classic pop tunes spanning everything from love and self pity to aviation history.
