Melbourne natives, World’s End Press has just released their debut self titled debut album. Working with producer Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, Massive Attack), the quartet recorded at the famed studio Rockfield in Wales, using the same piano Freddy Mercury used for Bohemian Rhapsody. Attempting to record and album that sounded as live as possible, the band had a fair bit of practice played with some wicked live acts – Primal Scream, Hot Chip and Bloc Party. We interviewed the band about their musical influences, see below.
