about

Sig Nu Gris (aka Erin Hyde) widens the lens to reveal a mesmerising and uncompromising personal vision on debut album Threshold.

The album's dizzying dreamscapes took shape during Melbourne's world-record long-term COVID lockdowns, as Erin lost herself completely in the process of music making, honing her unique sound on an album that reflects both the anxiety of the times and her own unshakeable sense of playfulness.

Inspired by auteurs from Proc Fiskal to Emma-Jean Thackray to Drexciya, Erin's productions are packed with intense detail but also a head-spinning sense of wonder. That tension between joy and anxiety informs the exhilarating hybrid sound of Threshold, a sound that she has explored in mixes for BBC 6 Music (Tom Ravenscroft), DUMMY & KEXP, and that has found her support from Gorilla vs Bear, COLORS, FBi Radio and DJs Nina Las Vegas, Andy Garvey and Air Max '97.


“Threshold refers to the feeling of being at boiling point - that intensity you feel when everything is just about to overwhelm you.

I made this music during a very intense time in my life, when Melbourne went into the first of its long-term lockdowns. I wasn’t working, so my life revolved entirely around music creation. Suddenly I had all of this time to create music, which was amazing - until it wasn’t.

Listening back, there is a tension present in all the songs. Every creation has such bursting energy of emotion – the songs became the vehicle for a lot of pent up feelings and things that I didn’t have words for and still don’t.

Threshold feels like the point at which all of those things demanded to be known, and came spilling over into my songs. It is the culmination of a lot of things, and best represents my music making style and intensely detailed creation process up until now.”
