Melbourne alt-country singer-songwriter Freya Josephine Hollick has just launched her brand new single “The Pearly Gates of the Landfill”. The track is the singer’s first since the release of her EP Don’t Mess With The Doyenne earlier this year.

“I wrote it about – like always – my daughter’s dad, and a date that we had where we went to the tip shop” Hollick explained. “And it’s all true, everything that’s in the song – it comes from the hilarious redneck romance that I had with my daughter’s dad.”

The single was recorded while singer-songwriter Robert Ellis, bass player Geoffrey Muller and drummer Michael “Tank” Lisenbe were in town for the Out On The Weekend festival, all three of which Freya Josephine Hollick convinced to join her in the studio for the single.

“I’d been listening a lot to Robert’s records, and also to the Traveller tunes,” she explains, “and then when the opportunity arose that they could come into the studio and record, I thought it was perfect ‘cause I’d sort of written the song with their instrumentation in mind anyway, which was kinda cool.”
