Listen / download: Back Back Forward Punch – “No Answer”
“No Answer” is the new single from Melbourne electronic duo Back Back Forward Punch (aka BBFP), and it is also just the first taste of what we can expect from their upcoming debut EP.
Written and recorded in their home studio in Melbourne’s inner-west, Andy Liddell and Laura Boland take us on another wonderful romp through their invigorating electronic soundscapes.
Andy creates a stunning tropical island backdrop with his seamlessly playful production, setting the scene for Laura’s lush vocals to take a gradual stroll down its sun-setting coastline. On the surface “No Answer” seems is like a ray of sunshine with its bouncy tropical beats, warm woody chords, and lush comforting vocals, but as you delve further into the tapestry of its sounds you begin to discover a world of turmoil and sadness.
It’s a song about trying to find an ending amongst indecisiveness, not really knowing what to say when there’s no words left to use.
“When we started writing No Answer, the sounds were light and tropical and fun, but as the vocals and lyrics developed, we realised this song had some dark undertones. If No Answer was a postcard it would picture a tropical island with a storm rolling in, and on the back it would be blank” – BBFP
“No Answer” is available to download for free via BBFP’s Soundcloud, but only until its official release on June 18. We can also expect a few more singles from BBFP over the coming months in the lead-up to their debut EP.
