Recorded at Montsalvat artists’ colony on the outskirts of Melbourne during the winter and spring of 2020, ANIMAL IN HIDING is the fruit of a creative partnership between Lior and Domini Forster, developed over six years touring together. Initially with Domini as Lior's support act, then as a guest vocalist, and now as co-writer and collaborator.
“Singing together, Domini and I can weave in and out of each other’s shadow. We sense one another’s vocal nuances in real time. It is a rare musical synergy, one we felt compelled to capture in a collaborative project" says Lior.
“We definitely have a real kinship as singers” says Domini. “There’s something special in the blend of our voices that we both immediately recognised”.
While Lior and Domini began writing the songs in late 2019, much of the material was developed during Melbourne’s long lockdown, over Zoom from their respective homes. The title track, originally written about the isolation of winter, became the prophetic seed of the project.
ANIMAL IN HIDING features 6 songs that are rooted in intimate storytelling. Underpinned by intricate guitar, Lior and Domini’s close vocal harmonies are the focal point of the songs, harking back to the iconic folk duos of the 60s.
