Katie Noonan's Vanguard
'Transmutant', due for release July 24, is the new studio long-player from one of Australia's most respected and sublime recording artists, Katie Noonan. An ethereal body of work, it introduces audiences to Katie Noonan's Vanguard, bringing Katie back to the band environment where she started her career as an 18 year old, a backdrop where she acknowledges, she feels most comfortable.
Fans received an initial taste of 'Transmutant' from a teaser single earlier in the year, a haunting track called 'Peace is My Drug'. The album takes in a lot of sonic terrain, from the slow-build of opener 'Falling Into A Lie' to the layered percussion of lead single 'Quicksand', through the back-and-forth of 'In The Name of the Father' (a duet with rising star Jordan White from Playwrite) and the playful percussion of the closing 'Cloud of Home'.
Katie explains that the album's inspiration was two-fold - as the album title suggests, it personifies a shift, a change - to mutate. It was also a chance for her to connect deeply with her audience through her crowd-funded Pledge campaign (which reached it’s target in under 48 hours) and to really take the reins as a producer to create a lush cinematic world that reflects her various muses. Katie Noonan's Vanguard comprises Katie, her Captains bandmates Stu Hunter and Declan Kelly, plus a new face in New Zealand guitarist Peter Koopman.
'Transmutant' comes to life via an extensive national tour this October and November. In what is sure to be an exceptional live event, Katie and her musical compatriots will play 15 dates across the country including this performance at The Street.
