Lior & Domini is a new collaboration between one of Australia’s most distinguished singer-songwriters Lior and exciting emerging artist Domini Forster. Today they release Gloria, the first single from their forthcoming EP Animal in Hiding, to be released October 15.
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 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. Honestly, I think a big part of why we started this collaboration was just so we could sing together more!”
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.
