Slow Dissolve (formerly known as Collins Lynch Watson) is an instrumental soundtrack ensemble from Melbourne, formed in late 2014. It’s primary members are multi-instrumentalists Nathan Collins, Chris Lynch and Andrew Watson.
Mixing Piano, strings & guitar with textural loops, Slow Dissolve evokes soundtracks to movies yet to be scripted, first kisses yet to be dared kissed & all the heartbreaks that will inevitably follow - with a blend of piano, violin, guitar & sonic textures their sound has been said to recall Australian forebears such as The Necks & Dirty Three through a prism of influence from the works of Brian Eno, Yann Tiersen, and Gusavo Santaolalla.
Their self-titled debut album is out now through Bandcamp, Hawk Moth Records, and was released in Japan through Salvaged Tapes Records. To coincide with playing live to air on 3RRR at The Forum in Melbourne (August 2016) they released an online live EP - ‘Live at Meeniyan Town Hall’ with accompanying live video of ‘Only The Dead Have Seen The End Of War’ along with a video performance of ‘Xmas In New York’ at the 3RRR live to air - the first preview of material from their forthcoming studio album – due for release in 2017.
