Smoke Notes

This double mini album features stalwarts of the local scene, White Swan (Sonya Waters) and Black Swan (Ben Howe).

White Swan started her career in legendary AK punk band The Instigators, writing the 80s classic Hope Shes Alright before moving abroad to play in bands in London (The Woodentops, ICU) and San Francisco (her own band Orange).

She also has a large wall filled with 50s ballerina prints and a collection of mini stag head barometers.

Black Swan has played in various bands, including Flying Nun favourites Superette. He collects 60s and 70s lamps and Super 8mm home movies. These days he also runs Arch Hill Recordings.

Both Swans previously played in Fang, who released three very well received albums.

White Swan Black Swan (the band) also features the solid Rick McShane (drums) and sturdy Ben Furniss (bass) as with the aforementioned White Swan on keyboards and Black Swan on guitars, with both Swans sharing the singing.

The first disc features songs penned by White Swan, and the 2nd, songs by Black Swan, but its not two solo EPs/albums!

Producer Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Calexico, Will Oldham, David Kilgour) mixed White Swan Black Swan at the Beech House studios in Nashville USA, while the tracks for the double-mini were recorded at the nest-like Arch Hill Studios and the home of the Swans, snug among the trees at the base of an Auckland volcano.

AK-based artist Henrietta Harris created two gorgeous paintings for the beautiful album artwork the outside (modern) swans are trapped in the surrounds of urban trimmings, while the inside swans dream of their freedom in the country.
