New Experimental Electronic EP from Melbourne Solo Artist The Vainglories

Solace is the new EP from The Vainglories, the solo project of Melbourne artist Gillian Lever. Described as "lullabies for the nightmare-prone," Solace blends dark undercurrents with deceptively pretty melodies, shifting rhythms and synthetic textures.

Gillian has been writing as The Vainglories since 2003, creating scores for imaginary films. Whilst living in Melbourne she played in melodic pop band Tempted and electronica duo Sweet Violentine, and contributed music to theatre, live improvised comedy and (actual) short film. In 2007, she moved to Brighton in England and created a live performance set from The Vainglories' back catalogue of extraterrestrial lullabies, playing at celebrated Brighton venues such as Komedia and The Basement. Now based in Melbourne again, as The Vainglories she constantly struggles with the grammatical difficulties that arise from being a solo artist with a name more suited to a band. 'Solace' is her first release since 2010's 'Violets' and her debut release for Australian experimental netlabel, Wood & Wire.
