Death, Love & Buildings

Graeme Hammond, Sydney Morning Herald
It seems remarkable that as they deliver their fourth album, Melbourne folk/roots band Tinpan Orange are still under the radar. Their last, The Bottom of the Lake (2009) was a fetching and whimsical collection of gentle songs of love and other wonders; Over The Sun takes them several steps away from their folk beginnings to delve into a broader spread of stules, incorporating many of the dramatic and quirky flourishes that define the work of Florence and the Machine and Tori Amos. There are once again a couple of lovely waltzes. The rousing closing song, Tattoo on Her Wrist grows into a hurtling, compelling fairground ride.



**** (4 stars)

Emily Harms, Readings

Over recent years, Tinpan Orange have evolved from a brother-and-sister duo to a dynamic five-piece, now including Harry Angus from The Cat Empire. Over the Sun is their third album, borne from a major life change: parenthood. Emily Lubitzs’ vocals glide like a bird over the sun reflecting on past loves, past lives, and fond and painful memories of days gone by spiralling into a frenzy of madness.

Over the Sun is a homage to becoming a family and the cocktail of emotions that come with it – strength, fragility, fatigue, resentment and overpowering love. Personal highlights are ‘Like Snow’, ‘Round the Twist’, ‘Lamb’ and ‘Tattoo on Her Wrist’.
