About the album & band:
But You Made Me Such A Beautiful Thing is a long and deliberate meditation. Its songs are moody and meandering, drawing the listener into dreamy fantasy landscapes, and then suddenly plunging down into periods of prolonged psychological intensity. Layers of ghostlike vocals, at times angelic and at others almost wailing, convey the unsettling melancholy that runs like a constant throughout the entire record. The lyrics explore themes of love and rejection, but quickly drop down into the heavier expanse of existential confusion, the waxing and waning of faith, the questioning of the nature of reality, time and its traps, shadows, unconsciousness, and paralysis at the gates of taking the reins of your own fate.
The New York-native four piece Giant Peach continue to honestly hone their unique craft of cinematic rock. A period of intensive writing and workshopping that came about during the release of their Tarantula LP laid the foundation for But You Made Me… The trajectory of the making of the record was punctuated by long breaks, as well as changes in lineup, recording technique, and location. The wider timeline has resulted in a distinctly collagey, experimental aesthetic, dense yet softened, like a painting gone over and over again. The songs have been touched by more hands than usual, involving engineers such as Hunter Davidsohn at Business District Recordings, Mike Kutchman, and Brian Chaudhry, as well as home recordings from the basements and bedrooms of primary songwriters Frances Chang and Mike Naideau.
