Sorrow Trees, Debut Album "Sorrow Trees" Released Feb 2014



Folktronic reverie 'Joni in the Moon' hails the return of singer/song-writer Joni Hogan after eight years of relative silence. The reach of Jonis voice is at the centre of Joni in the Moons melodic, heart-on-sleeve folk-pop lyric and world-sample electronica.

After the dissolution of first band Heathcliffe in 2004, and the birth of her first child in 2005, Joni spent the following years writing music in recluse. In 2009, Joni headed for the hills of hometown Perth, Western Australia, nestling amongst the granite bergs and undulating wilderness of Darlington. It was here, in solitude, that the sonic skeletons of Joni in the Moon began to materialize.

Due for release late 2013, debut album Sorrow Trees has been produced and arranged at home and in a makeshift studio in Fremantle, WA, with acclaimed noisemaker and sibling, Josh Hogan. Josh's career obsession with world sounds/rhythms and his kinship with the work of artists such as Flying Lotus and Bjork, has created in him an enormous archive of collected sound, experience and sonic instinct.

There is a theatrical magic in Josh's arrangement of Jonis songs floating flutes, harps and harmonium dance with guttural, bass-lines, bazantar-bellied strings, and a hypnotic and structured mish-mash of traditional and industrial/synthetic percussive pops. Indeed, Joni in the Moon weaves the siblings together in a complex and strangely beautiful musical symbiosis and it's this musical collision that launches Jonis songwriting debut so boldly.

'Sorrow Trees' is a sleek narrative of emotional transmutations, and Joni's is a voice unafraid in revealing the interdependence of herself and nature, and the haunting reverie in which the two intertwine.
