Biography

Brisbane’s well-favoured proto-pop princes Skinny Jean return from a year in the studio to give their city a sneak preview of their highly anticipated forthcoming album The Diving Saucer Returns from a World Where the Sun Never Shines.

In twelve months of deepening obscurity, Skinny Jean begot three children: a boy, a girl, and an album. In all the resplendent wankery the band admits to represent, they have chosen a title as elongated as it is indicative. The Diving Saucer Returns from a World Where the Sun Never Shines heralds the captivating return of the four-piece.

Contrasting analogue production with shiny new electronic appendages, they have slowly crafted a work that is both warm and slick. In typical Skinny Jean fashion, the album showcases songs that deeply contrast each other. After the nation-wide critical acclaim that their first album Dolce Doggerel generated, the band has sought to eclipse that full-length attempt from 2009.

They spent twelve long months in exotic Moorooka at Stephen Bartlett’s Docking Station studios. Amid the bleak metropolitan setting a diverse array of songs gestated. The songs were recorded directly to tape through analogue gear and mastered to vinyl. Using this production aesthetic, the band quickly discovered the positive effect recording to tape had on their sound and performances.
Skinny Jean will imminently be releasing the first 3 cuts from The Diving Saucer Returns from a World Where the Sun Never Shines online and marking the occasion with their comeback show on August 4, 2012 at the Visy Theatre, New Farm.
