Announced: Obscura Hail – Playing Dead

After letting the dust settle on their widely supported 2020 double EP Siren, Sean Conran, Tamara Issa, and Kaelan Emond of Obscura Hail, mark their return with new album Playing Dead out Friday, 1st March.

Helmed by musician Sean Conran, the indie rock trio’s second album is mature in content and playful in delivery and took two years to create with foundations of sounds and ideas laid some eight or nine years earlier.

Not losing sight of Obscura Hails’ purpose to externalise memory for the sake of preservation, Playing Dead‘s 14 tracks were born out of Conran’s traditional indie song writing style – a nightly ritual of writing and recording to give closure to anxious thoughts of mortality and ontology through ad-hoc means.
