ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Greenhaus, who managed to enlighten me already with their live performances last year, have done it again this year to brighten up the late Fall with a beam of sunshine, similar to Sigur Ros, who managed to do this just two months earlier' (Electric Diary - Germany)

‘Not just an ethereal soundscape but an enchanting melody as well… the kind of music not heard since the Cocteau Twins, and listening to ‘Higher Ground’ we are very glad of that’ (Record of the Day)

Greenhaus, originally an electronic 3 piece formed in the late 90‘s, (with releases under the Beggars Banquet and Kickin Records labels), are about to release their 4th studio album.

The first three have paved the way for the latest, a double album entitled 'a fools paradise'. The bands' first offering, 'The Unmistakeable Sound of Sloth', was described variously as 'the offspring of ambient and wave' and an 'essential album that will cater to a wide range of musical tastes'. This was then followed up 2 years later by Another life (2004), described by one critic as 'best suited for those into lunar and dreamy moods’, 'space rock with electro grooves.' This album contained many tracks featuring the vocalist Lahannya.

The band's third studio album, 'You're Not Alone', was released on Kalinkaland Records in Germany and Revolver Records in the UK during 2006 and 2007. It received excellent reviews (quoted above) and has been considered the band's best work to date. Vocals are now provided by Phoenix J, with her beautifully crafted melodies and tone leading to the overall offering being described as 'almost therapeutic', and likened to Massive Attack and the Cocteau Twins. She is the ideal complement to Anthony Neale, who has been providing excellent vocals for the band since 2005. During this time the band have played many times across Europe.

The band's live lineup has stabilised over recent years to include Phoenix J (vocals & lyrics), Steve Bellamy (music), Warren Farr (drums), and Clark Denham (bass). And during this time they have been busy working on this new double album, comprising a mixture of full vocal tracks and instrumentals. Some of the new material has a more electronic feel to it than 'You're Not Alone', although other tracks are almost totally acoustic such as 'Kiss and Tell' which contains ethnic rhythms and violin riffs. The recordings also contain excellent contributions from Mark Anthony on lead guitar and Susana Duende on keyboards, both of whom have performed with the band on many occasions, as well as Anthony Neale on vocals, Nim diRicci on flute, Malcolm Standard on viola, Jonny Hunt on violin and Achim Faerber on drums.
