Paul Hartnoll from Orbital and the controversial poet Murray Lachlan Young reveal 'Garden Centre' from their forthcoming album 'The Virus Diaries'!
Hartnoll & Young announce their lockdown-inspired musical collusion album, with the release of ‘Garden Centre (Push The Trolley)’!
Paul Hartnoll is one-half of the ground-breaking electronic dance music duo Orbital. Murray Lachlan Young is a controversial poet and performance artist. Together they are creating ‘Hartnoll & Young’, and announced the release of an album: ‘The Virus Diaries’.
This album is a surreal and poignantly lighthearted musical wander through the ever-shifting scene of the first lockdown. Their newest single is paying homage to these undervalued institutions and spotlighting them as one of the only options of escape.
“In lockdown #1 I found peace in the local garden centre. I arrived feeling so grim from all the collective fear and worry. I left feeling like I’d had a chat with some wise ancestor who’d told me that everything was going to be alright in the end. The beauty was, I took some of those ancestors home with me and they still live just outside my door. Of course they are available for a chat whenever the need arises.” Murray Lachlan Young
The track is bright fun, uplifting, and filled with infectious synth melodies, with an obvious touch of Orbital’s production. You can listen to it HERE!
