The Jezabels “Synthia”

SYNTHIA is the third album from the acclaimed Australian band and was recorded in Sydney with producer/engineer Lachlan Mitchell. Of the album and recording process, Hayley Mary notes, “This is a record we made ourselves, at our own behest… we just had a natural momentum. We were back in Sydney [from London] in January, got together to rehearse and wrote about four songs in a week.” She continues, “Previously I’ve shrouded myself a lot in mystery and the language of romanticism; played roles and stuff-which reflected some kind of truth about how I felt as a woman. Now I feel like I can be much more upfront… The truth about how it feels to be a woman has become a more prominent part of the general conversation in the last couple of years… these are exciting times. I think we’ve made an album that celebrates that.”
