THEY’VEBEENCALLED is Jep and Dep’s brand new second album.
Stretching itself across the aural equivalent a of lonely midnight drone spiriting across regrets and distant memories THEY’VEBEENCALLED is the sound of Jep and Dep refining their folk noir sound into something menacingly beautifully and unique.
Subject matter ranging from the utter disapproval of gentrification, missing rich kids in reservoirs, tumultuous relationships ending with euphoric sadness, the passing of loved ones... THEY’VEBEENCALLED is dark , romantic, real and seeps into the room like a familiar haunting ghost.
Recorded and produced by Darren Cross (Dep) mainly between the hours of 12am- 5am (when all in the neighbourhood were sleeping ) the somewhat heavy noir feel vibrates through the recordings in many ambient and ethereal forms.
Mastered by William Bowden (the Church, Goyte, Jimmy Little, Tim Finn to name a few) in Tasmania enhances the subtle nuances and otherworldly atmospheres of the album.
After recently supporting LOW, Aldous Harding, Cash Savage, Jen Cloher, Courtney Barnett, Mirel Wagner, Jessica Pratt , Johnny Marr and the Blackeyed Susans - Jep and Dep are ready to perform their latest album around the country and world.
