Biography

The Townhouses is a kaleidoscopic adventure of worldly sounds, viewed through a contemporary lens. The misleading solo project of Melbourne artist Leigh Hannah casts a wide net of influences. The sound is based on Leigh’s obsession with Ethnomusicology. He wistfully mixes Tropicalia, Gamelan, African and Ambient soundscapes to create an experimental collage of breezy summer vibes.

The Townhouses album, Diaspora will be released this November through Yes Please Records. Highlighting an evolution of sound and mixed by Nick Huggins (Mick Turner, Oscar + Martin, Otouto) the album features collaborations with Italy’s Giorgio Tuma (Elefant Records), Guerre, Wintercoats, Rainbow Chan and Felix Weatherbourne.

Looking backwards, The Townhouses has just wrapped up a European tour, playing shows all across the continent. This also included supporting Dent May in Paris and performing at Torstrassen Festival in Berlin. Back on home soil he’s supported School of Seven Bells, Toro Y Moi, Sun Araw, Prince Rama, Seaworthy, Pantha Du Prince and many more. He also performed at the 2011/12 Peats Ridge Festival in NSW and has remixed Geoffrey O’Connor, Alpine, Fishing and Guerre.
