Growing (out of nothing)
Concerned Greta


‘Since Subito' is the long-awaited sophomore album of MEATSHELL - the experimental-folk duo comprising the distinctive musical voices of two emerging Australian artists, Helen Svoboda (double bass/voice) and Andrew Saragossi (tenor saxophone).

Recorded in the Netherlands one week before the first lockdown, this body of music is the culmination of the duo's experiences living in Europe between 2018-2020. A musical manifestation of their interpretation of the concepts and principles underpinning the cubist art movement, the album has a particular focus on juxtaposition and simultaneous revealing of various, sometimes clashing perspectives of one idea, a stark departure from their largely homogenous debut release 'Afar' (2019 MADE NOW MUSIC).

MEATSHELL’s quirky and abstract songwriting style is on full display in 'Since Subito', reflecting their shared passion for the unorthodox and ambition of illustrating the full emotional spectrum of the human condition. Sincere, beautiful melodies and euphoric grooves are boldly juxtaposed with moments of mystery, desperation and screaming chaos, as the duo contemplate climate change, mental illness and new birth.

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Conservatorium Maastricht, Jazz Maastricht and the Conservatorium Maastricht Foundation for supporting our musical vision, fostering our artistic growth and providing valuable opportunities to showcase and push our art beyond what we thought was possible.

We would also like to thank Daniel Rafet Grima for providing the stunning visual stimulus which acted as a direct catalyst for the work which followed. Long live the turtleneck.
--- With love, MEATSHELL.
