Problems was born when Justin Walkden finished up recording with another project and, needing to focus his creative energy elsewhere, began to put together a series of home recordings. Bringing in his old mate Shane Lock to record some vocals, the two realised they were onto something when the tracks on their Soundcloud began to appear on several international blogs.
Influenced by artists like Bonobo, Washed Out and How To Dress Well, Problems’ sound finds its magic between the layers of organic and electronic sounds. The duo’s debut EP For The Ages was recorded over the last few months between day jobs and searching for the perfect wave.
Described by Problems as “depicting a memory we still long for of a time that didn’t matter,” For The Ages is a lush, sprawling collection of mellow tracks that spiral with intimate ambition. Immersed in themes of youth and nostalgia, For The Ages is an emotive experience through past lives, present relationships and future experiences, a journey that is only just beginning…
For The Ages is now available digitally from iTunes, Beatport, Juno, Spotify and a bunch of other places too.
