Intimate, harmonised storytelling, underpinned by intricate guitar. Animal in Hiding is the first release from a collaboration between Lior, one of Australia’s most established and critically acclaimed singer/songwriters, together with exciting emerging artist Domini Forster. The pair developed a creative partnership over six years touring together. Initially Domini toured as Lior’s support act, then as a guest vocalist and now as co-writer on their debut EP Animal in Hiding.
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 songs that are rooted in expressive storytelling. Underpinned by intricate guitar, Lior and Domini’s close vocal harmonies are the focal point, harking back to the iconic folk duos of the 60s.
