Vast Hill return with new single ‘Abagail’ from forthcoming debut album More Than You Imagined

One of Sydney’s breakthrough dream-pop acts of 2019, Vast Hill, celebrates the release of their debut album More Than You Imagined. A project that has become a beautiful snapshot of the duo’s artistry, More Than You Imagined is presented with confidence and shimmering flair. 

Having released their latest single ‘Abagail’ at the top of the month, Vast Hill continued to introduce the listener to their kaleidoscopic, pastel-drenched world. Following on from the well-received ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Heartbreaker’, ‘Abagail’ is another beautifully constructed synth driven soundscape. 

The retro ‘80s soaked vibe is one that continues throughout More Than You Imagined, but never veers into pastiche territory. With an A-Grade team of producers and musical minds behind the scenes working on the project including Luke Million, Michael Chow (FROYO), and Steve Smart, More Than You Imagined traverses territory ranging from the daydream-heavy (‘Lonely Street’), to the gorgeously immersive (‘We’d Move’)

Vocalist Elle Kress hypnotises (‘Hard Goodbye’) with her vocal range, threading its way throughout the album as a guide to follow willingly; the music encourages a deep dive into the pastel hues and soft-edged nature of it all. With songs like ‘Far Away From Home’ and the title track ‘More Than You Imagined’, it’s not hard to let the hazy vibes wash over you completely.

Melding perfect melodies with clever arrangement, the album as a whole, is a concise and cohesive snapshot of the strong unit Vast Hill have developed into throughout the course of this year. A songwriting duo who knows their direction and aesthetic, the way Vast Hill execute the delivery of their music is fun, vibrant and switched on.
