Description

    'Brutal Dawn' is part two of a series of two albums from Bernard Fanning! The anticipated new album follows part one, 'Civil Dusk.'

    'Brutal Dawn' is the much anticipated second installment in a two album series from singer-songwriter Bernard Fanning and follows last year's ARIA award winning 'Civil Dusk' (#2 ARIA Debut). Renewal, realisation, reconciliation and evolution are the 'brutal' answers to 'Civil Dusk's lyricism, revision, tenderness and romance.

    Fanning's band The Black Fins give full force to songs that speak to the perils and benefits of deep reflection. Much of the same personnel from Civil Dusk create a dynamic record that has minimal instrumentation that reinforces the lyrics. Fanning and Nick DiDia's La Cueva Recording in Byron Bay again provided the backdrop for this second installment in the series that was recorded through the summer of 2016/17.

    This is an album that has been carefully realized but manages to stay free of artifice or contrivance. It is an adept answer to the questions posed on its predecessor and points to a way forward for an artist that is wholeheartedly dedicated to the craft of songwriting and presenting them in an album format.


    About 'Civil Dusk'

    'Civil Dusk' is the anticipated third solo album by multi ARIA and APRA Award winning singer-songwriter Bernard Fanning!

    Recorded at Byron Bay studio La Cueva, the album was produced, engineered and mixed by Nick DiDia who has worked with artists including Powderfinger, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Aimee Mann and Matthew Sweet. With recording wrapping up over Easter 2016, the songs are characterised by a sense of warmth, space and the earthy treatment of timber based instruments - acoustic guitar, piano, strings and violin.

    With his solo career now spanning a 10-year period, Fanning has firmly cemented his position as one of Australia's finest songwriters and lyricists. From the country folk-tinged charm of his multi-platinum debut solo album 'Tea And Sympathy' (#1 ARIA Debut) to the synth beats and horn breaks of its follow up 'Departures' (#1 ARIA Debut), Fanning is a songwriter in continuous motion, his trusty notebook never far from his side.
