“Ice Cold” By Armlock

Australian band Armlock releases their new album, Seashell Angel Lucky Charm, on July 12th via Run For Cover, ahead of the Lp’s arrival, the duo has shared “Ice Cold.” Armlock is a duo made up of Simon Lam (guitar/vocals) and Hamish Mitchell (guitar/keyboards). They both come from more of an experimental electronic music background (projects like I’lls, Couture, and Kllo), and Armlock is actually the first project they’ve ever done where they’ve used guitar.

Friends for 14 years, Lam (vocals and guitar) and Mitchell (guitar and keyboards) have been in their fair share of musical projects together and apart. The two met studying jazz at Monash University in Melbourne, eventually discovering a shared love of electronic music. After a handful of electronic and dance outlets (I’lls, Couture, Kllo) Armlock came together through the band’s natural camaraderie and comfort with collaboration, and the two began incorporating guitar into the music they were making for the first time. Capable of recording and engineering the whole project themselves, the pair never needed to be precious with studio time. Instead they preferred venturing down songwriting rabbit holes, chasing down a feeling and layering ideas at their home studios, unsure where a song would ultimately land. “There’s no real distinction between writing, demoing, and final production, it’s all done at the same time,” says Lam. “It’s a workflow that is much more common in electronic music and how we started making music together.”
