Melding together the soundscapes of tongue-in-cheek indie rock with psychedelic pop; The Washing Line Economy seek to take their listeners on a nostalgic journey through their unique and unmistakable sound. Inspired by Pink Floyd and Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, they explore topics that span from the sensitivities of love to philosophical inquiries.
A prolific songwriter and sporadic performer, Jacob Wylde makes heartfelt confessional folk that is unapologetic in its delivery. Jacob’s lyrics live somewhere in the overlap between the mundane and transcendent in a way that makes your morning coffee feel meaningful. He records from his bedroom; the studio releases lean heavily on subtle builds, stark dynamics, and lush textures. The songs take on a new life in a live context, drawing audiences in with subtle yet strong musicianship and creating space for contemplative rest one moment and noisy, dissonant expectancy the next.
