Melbourne Downtempo DreamPop Mechanical Pterodactyl Release New Album and Single  ‘I Don’t Want Anyone Else’  (Single ) – released November 16th 2020 ‘Timelapse’ (ALBUM) – released 30th 2020 “I Don’t Want Anyone Else” is the lead single from the new studio album “Timelapse”. 

A softly building ballad that is as powerful in its instrumental minimalism as it is in the lush Bon Iver-style vocal harmonies of its chorus. Speaking on the lyrics, songwriter Yen explains “the song contemplates the thin line between infatuation and addiction, that we can look to a person as a source of pain-relief and mistake that for love.” An accompanying video clip using archival super 8 footage is also due for release. ​ 

Released November 30th, the full-length studio album “Timelapse” was written and recorded over a period of 7 years, a time that has seen the world in a state of increasing unrest and crisis. The songs of “Timelapse” each capture a moment of personal reflection – set apart in time – against the backdrop of civilisation in perceived decline. 

Together the songs reveal a personal search for meaning and understanding in a rapidly changing world. Yen’s lush and atmospheric production crosses between moods and styles with each track – evoking James Blake, Alex G and Bon Iver. “The bulk of the parts I play and record myself at home but there are a few guests on the album too. Instruments like Drums, Piano, Horns and Strings were recorded at The Aviary Recording Studio. Sonically, I’ve always been interested in creating "worlds” that listeners can close their eyes and fall into, to take the listener somewhere different with each track.“
