It’s been a long time coming, but Sydney producer Thrupence has finally released his debut album, ‘Ideas of Aesthetics‘.
Building up a strong, cult-like following with an array of impressive releases via Bandcamp over the years, Thrupence has stepped up on his first full-length project, portraying a finely crafted sound that has clearly been worked on for a number of years, and a moody but blissful narrative that he says is the soundtrack to an imaginary film.
When speaking on the project, Thrupence explains it as “a collection of songs made over the last six years. Some songs date back to 2011, others were finished in the last six months. It has become a diary of places I’ve lived and people I’ve met over this time.”
The album comes via Sydney imprint Future Classic – home to the likes of Flume, Nick Murphy and Flight Facilities – and displays yet another exciting direction the label has taken that follows the signing of eclectic Melbourne duo Fortunes. back in 2016.
On top of making music, Thrupence works as a graphic designer and is the brains behind RÜFÜS’ ARIA nominated album art for ‘Bloom’ that was released last year. With an understanding of his love for both visual arts and music, we as the consumer can better understand the grand scale of this project, and the deep thought that has gone into all aspects of the album as a whole.
Listen to ‘Ideas Of Aesthetics’ below, and enjoy.
