Perth artist Amber Fresh has been making music as Rabbit Island for over ten years, blending simple songs with experimental, improvised and lo-fi approaches to production and sound design.
Her latest record ‘Songs For Kids’ is a re-release of songs recorded direct to tape by Amber in a kitchen in Melbourne in 2013.
