SOLKYRI "No House":
Australian post-rock quartet Solkyri have announced they will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut EP No House with an international release on vinyl & CD. As part of the Birdís Robe Records 10th anniversary series, the record will be released in cooperation with Belgiumís famous Dunk Records and pressed on 180g vinyl for the first time.
Originally released in 2011, the record helped the band earn recognition as part of a burgeoning post-rock and post-metal scene in Sydney, alongside notable acts such as sleepmakeswaves, Meniscus, Dumbsaint, Panzer Queen, Mish, We Lost The Sea & Lander Configurations. Their early live performances led to a partnership with Birdís Robe and extensive touring in their home country with sleepmakeswaves.
Following the release of full-length studio albums Are You My Brother? (2013) and Sad Boys Club (2015) the band increased their touring considerably. They toured alongside Maybeshewill (UK), ÖAnd You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead (USA) and Mew (DEN) as well as heading to Europe for their first international performances at Belgiumís Dunk Festival in 2015, touring alongside fellow Australians Tangled Thoughts of Leaving. They also headlined their own shows at clubs along the east coast and shared stages with The Red Paintings, 65daysofstatic (UK) and Vampillia (JPN).
In 2020, they returned with their third record Mount Pleasant, further enriching their catalogue as a pummelling, dynamic instrumental rock act and debuting at #1 on the 100% Independent Charts in Australia and #96 on the ARIA Chart. They joined MONO (JPN) as part of their 20th anniversary tour before being sidelined by the onset of the pandemic until returning for a sold out hometown show to finally officially launch their album earlier this year.
The young post-rock group have continued a long recording and production relationship with former Canberra resident, now London-based producer Dax Liniere (Meniscus, Dumbsaint, sleepmakeswaves) across all their records.
No House has now been remastered by Liniere for vinyl and is a wonderful glimpse back at the exciting emergence of one of Australiaís most beloved post-rock acts of the past decade.
