Summer Flake returns in full force with Hello Friends, the followup to the critically acclaimed 2013 debut LP You Can Have It All. The album marks a new era for Melbourne-via-Adelaide musician Stephanie Crase (whose former credits include No Through Road, Birth Glow, Hit the Jackpot and Batrider), having enlisted the production finesse of Geoffrey O’Connor to propel her idiosyncratically sun-drunk guitar pop into new and more lush territories. Drenched in a timeless reverb, Summer Flake’s transcendent songs float on the ethereal wings of pop, via the Crystals and the Paris Sisters, wander down the lonely byways of Karen Dalton and Laurel Canyon folkies, amble up alongside the hard-edged ’90s alternative rock of Hole and Sonic Youth, before finally emerging into the sunshine of other dream-pop contemporaries like Best Coast or Mac DeMarco. It’s only the second full-length release for Summer Flake but Crase’s output has been prolific over the last four years, with four EPs under her belt that garnered increasing attention in Australia and internationally. Hello Friends continues Crase’s tendency for the thoughtful arrangements, ’90s-tinged frankness and dizzying harmonies that have led her from strength to strength, this time adding a deeper layer of emotional reflection to an already enduring sound. These songs, as delicate as a snowflake on a summer beach, unmoor one from the drudgeries of place and time, and Hello Friends confirms Summer Flake as a band to watch.  “Like Angel Olsen and Waxahatchee? Prefer more nostalgic references, how about PJ Harvey, Look Blue Go Purple, Hole, and mellow Sleater-Kinney cuts? What’s that you say? They’re some your favourite musicians! ... [Y]ou’ll love Summer Flake.” —Catalogue Magazine  “It takes a lot of chutzpah to cover a Rolling Stones song—let alone do it well—but Summer Flake’s Stephanie Crase has just the chops and wry delivery to nail it.” —Noisey
