The Prisons of Language - debut ep 2004


Feeling a bit camera shy


A rich and fertile place cultivated and occupied by three eclectic musicians. United by a common passion for composition, noise and the development of an exclusive sound, Greenland embodies a theme of “tension and release”. The Prisons of Language Greenland’s acclaimed debut EP, was unleashed in 2004, and saw them take to the stage at many classic venues throughout Australia.

Inspired by diverse artists like Dead Can Dance, Four Tet, Sonic Youth, Phillip Glass and Sigur Ros, Greenland’s obsession with film and soundtrack clarifies their aspirations at play – it’s visual without the visuals, the score to a film that doesn’t exist, a desire to provoke the abstract and intangible. Videos for songs “The Amps Have Eyes” and “Alicia” denote the emotional diversity that this music can convey.

Greenland write organically, growing and evolving ideas, often from just a singular moment of creative inspiration; instinct, insight and compulsion replace contrived and conventional songwriting techniques. The music digests and extols every emotion – dark and hypnotic scores are served alongside spirited up-tempo grooves promising A unique, fresh and challenging platter of electrorganic noise delights.
