With great excitement Rough Velvet Records (MGM) announces that Melbourne musical identity Hugo Race, with a career spanning 25 years, is set to unveil the new self-titled Fatalists EP today, the latest independent offering from the multi-talented Race and the -Italian' Fatalists.
'Hugo Race Fatalists" is the collaboration between Race and Italian instrumental gurus, Sacri Cuori who together create ground-breaking, intense sonic soundscapes that merge folk, experimentalism, electronica and rock – compelling and hypnotic listening. Breaking cultural barriers, Hugo Race is the driving force behind the partnership with the self described romantic villains, Sacri Cuori.
The self titled EP is the third release from the Fatalists, following up from last years release We Never Had Control and Fatalists (self titled) in 2011. This latest offering was recorded during Hugo Race Fatalists recent and highly successful Australian tour that garnered Fatalists and Sacri Cuori a whole new local fan base.
The EP is being released today to coincide with Hugo's forthcoming European solo tour and is available on iTunes now. The lead single -Orphans' is complete with a brand new video clip, that can be viewed online. Filmed in Tasmania, the music video features dreamy landscapes and Hugo with his beau, Alannah Hill.
