Dobbyn's 'Harmony House'

It's been eight years since the songwriter's last album, but 'Harmony House' has been well worth the wait.

Dobbyn describes his new album as a "record of hope". It comes in two halves.

"I think there is something naively pop about the first half, songwise and in its melodies...apart from the opening track, which is a challenge.

"The second half gets into the darker heart of the house, though I think there is plenty of light there. I can't wait for reactions to the title tracks, Harmony House. I think we managed to encapsulate the saddest thing, in the grooviest way, on that closing cut."

The album was produced by Luke Buda & Sam Flynn Scott from The Phoenix Foundation, who put their atmospheric sonic trademarks across Dobbyn's sentimental, often spiritual musings. Opener 'Waiting for a Voice' is a standout.
