The John Steel Singers share ‘Can You Feel The Future’ + announce single tour

Everyone’s favourite Brisbanites The John Steel Singers have today premiered a brand new single titled ‘Can You Feel The Future’ via Tone Deaf. The track comes from their forthcoming LP Midnight At The Plutonium set for release via the band’s own record label Plutonium Records / Create Control later this year.

To celebrate, the band will be embarking on an single tour this month playing The Blurst of Times in Brisbane on April 16Brighton Up Bar in Sydney on April 21 and Curtin Bandroom in Melbourne on April 24. =

As the band explain, the 8 minute track has been years in the making:

“The song started as a loop, on my Digitech PDS 1002 back in 2010.  We jammed over that for a bit. Then a couple of years later Scott remembered it and came up with the funky bassline. We then took those new funky guts to a Welsh barnhouse and continued to refine it with the help of Jonathan Boulet on percussion.  Finally we brought it back to the Plutonium and after a million hours noodling then whittling then noodling then whittling we finally settled on the best song we’ve ever put on tape.”  Tim

“We were still adding things on the last night of album mixing. It was a 1000 piece puzzle that sat unfinished on a coffee table in our collective minds for months. Then we found some rogue pieces under the couch. Miro Mackie made us finish it before bed. It’s about 8 minutes but we love it like it is 2mins. Who says 8 minutes is too long for a single?… Everybody apparently?…dang”  - Luke

The John Steel Singers Drop Twin Sun Remix For ‘Weekend Lover’

Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 12.51.39 pm

Just in time for the so called silly season, everyone’s favourite Brisbanites The John Steel Singers have dropped a special summer remix of their latest single ‘Weekend Lover’ by Twin Sun (UK). The remix has been premiered exclusively by Happy.

Twin Sun are a DJ/Production duo from Reading, UK with a strong adoration of 80s power synths. John Steel Singers played directly below the Twin Sun’s studio on their last tour (in the infamous Oakford Social Club), giving ‘Weekend Lover’ one of its first live outings. The track immediately struck a chord with the duo, who share the John Steel Singers love of Can, David Axlerod, Chic and miniature toy horses. The chance to add their own twist to the track was an irresistible one.

‘Weekend Lover’ is Twin Sun’s first official remix release, following several edits of artists including Sufjan Stevens, Can, Jamie xx & Fleetwood Mac. Their Fleetwood Mac edits (including a Georgio Moroder-esque take on ‘Gold Dust Woman’) resulted in them playing Glastonbury this year with the DJ collective Fleetmac Wood, who are currently in Australia for Falls Festival and a number of much anticipated sideshows.

Listen, share, dance to Twin Sun’s remix of The John Steel Singer’s ‘Weekend Lover’ HERE.

IMMIGRANT UNION Share New Video ‘Wake Up & Cry’ Premiered by Pilerats + Announced for Boogie 10

Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 12.36.11 PM

Melbourne’s favourite country-inspired rock band, Immigrant Union have shared a freaky new video clip for their track ‘Wake Up & Cry’ via Pilerats.

The video was shot at a winery near Nagambie in Northern Victoria by Brent DeBoer and directed by DeBoer and his co-frontman Bob Harrow. Brent’s wife, Sarah DeBoer plays the lead role. It’s a surreal depiction of the loneliness and longing at the heart of the track… Bob explains, “I could hear my mates jamming in the next room and it sounded really good. I think I had just been dumped like the day before by my girlfriend at the time. After a while I started feeling really lonely so I wrote ‘Wake Up and Cry’ as a substitute for a friend in the room.”

The release of the clip coincides with today’s announcement that Immigrant Union will join the line up of Boogie Festival’s 10th year, happening on Bruzzy’s Farm in Tallarook, Victoria, on March 25, 26 and 27th. Also on the bill is Henry Wagons & The Only Children, Emily Ulman, Those Pretty Wrongs, Jason Isbell, Hoss, The Meanies and more. See www.boogie.net.au for more details.
