As 2020 - 2021 left many Melbourne musicians playing alone in the burrow of the longest lockdown in the world, co-habitant musicians Alison Ferrier and Jeff Lang soon realised they had another option. “Wanna make a record?” one of them stammered, and High Ace was born.
As a wife and husband team, the project is imbibed with a rare synergy and they quickly stumbled upon a unique and almost magical song - writing method: deciphering strange incantations played in reverse, and what the unusual, twisting cadences of those vocalisations were telling them. They imparted strange tales of rattling drums and poisoned hemlocks.
This radical departure in the songwriting process was prompted when Jeff and Ali accidentally used the reverse function on a family video rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ created for a relative. One of the most recognisable melodies in the world suddenly became strange and other worldly, inspiring Jeff and Alison to explore more.
While singing in harmony in every song, their individual styles were given room to emerge - Lang’s disturbed folk wanderings; Ferrier’s bruising guitar riffs and solos - but this album of songs has seen them visit a place neither of them has been before.
The performance at WOMADelaide 2022 will be their first major festival appearance and their first ever show in SA, with only a handful of warm up shows in their home town preceding it.
