This coming of age record for solo synth songstress Scraps (aka Brisbane’s Laura Hill), glides through the ghosts of our electro-pop heroes with a collection of infectiously catchy outer-space pop songs.  With a slither of Stereolab, a sprinking of Peaking Lights, this is a Julee Cruise meets Julia Holter sonic rendezvous engulfed in the bleepy, cosmic mushroom cloud of 80’s arcade.

The music of Scraps is a unique cosmic universe of emotions, thoughts and bedroom sound.  Utilising a minimalist set up of drum machine, keyboard and synth mixed with a life time obsession of the electronic pop music of yesteryear allow Laura Hill’s ideas to come alive.

Electric Oceans is a culmination of years spent lost in the independent music wilderness.  Experience has been gained through Hill continuously pushing herself as a musician, artist and human. Scraps is not your typically modern spoilt rich kid flash-in-a-pan solo synth songsmith. Tough battles have been fought and either won or lost, both personally and creatively – the results of which are more than evident on this record to be released internationally on Fire Records in March 2014.
