Greetings from tropical Brunswick. We’re back on deck after some relaxing summer afternoons in the hail, with our first single out in the world, a bunch of live shows lined up, and some new music and videos on the way.
We released Shiver & Shake at the end of 2011, and it’s been getting some great responses around the traps – it’s currently iTunes Single of the Week! We’re also chuffed that it got “Single of 2011” on PBS, 5/5 on Triple J Unearthed, and to our delight and mild bemusement was included alongside The Scissor Sisters and The Flaming Lips in Germany’s Jetzt Magazine’s “Top 5 Songs to Kick off 2012“.
Amidst brief moments of internet notoriety and confusion, we also played our first shows with a full band, and we’re very much enjoying their company, their playing, and the dubious honour of carting their gear around in our shiny new car. Had a great time supporting one of our favourite Melbourne bands The Hello Morning recently. They have a new album out that we think is really worth a listen, you can read a review of that show here.
We’re looking forward to playing a string of live shows and festivals over the next few months, including the Port Fairy Folk Festival in VIC and the Nannup Music Festival in WA. Check out our gig page for details.
Things are also bubbling along in the studio, and we’re keen to share some new tunes with you soon. In the meantime, you can download Shiver & Shake for FREE until TOMORROW. While you’re there, if you feel like making a comment..like “these people can sing better than Katy Perry”, that’d be tops!
