Infinity Broke
“Jamie Hutchings’ new band Infinity Broke is something of a return to the noisier exploratory guitar rock that he mastered so well with Bluebottle Kiss.” Doubtful Sounds

Sydney quartet Infinity Broke will release their debut album River Mirrorson Friday 4 April 2014 via Come To The Dark Side Luke / MGM Distribution. River Mirrors will be available on CD and limited edition 180gm vinyl.
 
Infinity Broke is the new project of Jamie Hutchings and Jared Harrison of Bluebottle Kiss fame, alongside Jamie's brother Scott Hutchings and long-term collaborator Reuben Wills. Whilst all four members have played in various incarnations of Jamie’s solo projects, most notably on his 2011 solo album Avalon Cassettes, Infinity Broke marks a musical transition for the band. 
 
There’s a notable return of electricity on River Mirrors, particularly in Jamie’s often free-improvised, jagged guitar playing. Songs go for as long or as short as they command, often hovering on chaos; however Hutchings’ unique songwriting voice and narrative approach remain as identifiable as ever. Throughout River Mirrors characters are often shadowed by the spectres of their past or the duplicity of their present. Infinity Broke’s muscular churn perfectly echoes the fractured mirrored image that many of the figures inhabit within these eight tracks.
 
Scott and Jared pummel kraut-rock inspired rhythms on drums and assorted percussion, which alongside Wills soulful bass playing creates a hypnotic and bloody musical canvas. If you’re sophisticated enough to love being hypnotized by early ‘70s improvisers like Can or On the Corner era Miles Davis, but you like getting beaten around by The Replacements or H%uFFFDsker D%uFFFD, then you will approve of Infinity Broke.
 
On returning to Australia from his third European tour in late 2011, Jamie began playing live in three-piece mode with bassist Reuben Wills and drummer Jared Harrison. The three piece would often delve into older Bluebottle kiss tracks, particularly those that lent themselves to improvisation, such as 'Let the Termites Eat our Riches' which is re-imagined here as the nine minute closing track ‘Termites’. In late 2012 a four-piece version of the band, featuring Harrison on drums, Wills on bass and Scott Hutchings on percussion and occasional electric guitar began to rehearse.
 
In January 2013 Infinity Broke were fortunate enough to gain access to a former shearing shed on a rural property in Western NSW, owned by Bathurst based artist Chris Mcgirr, to record River Mirrors. Over two long weekends they recorded over 70 minutes of material with engineer Chris Colquhoun. River Mirrors will be released on Come To The Dark Side Luke on Friday 4 April 2014.
