NADA SURF ANNOUNCE NEW RECORD - RELEASE FIRST SINGLE “BELIEVE YOU’RE MINE”


NADA SURF ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD, ‘YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE’ - FIRST TRACK “BELIEVE YOU’RE MINE” AVAILABLE TO HEAR NOW

Nada Surf has announced the release of its new album, You Know Who You Are, out March 4, 2016. This will be the band’s eighth record. Produced by long-time comrade Tom Beaujour at Nuthouse Recording, the album marks the band’s first as an official quartet with the core unit – singer/ songwriter/guitarist Matthew Caws, bassist Daniel Lorca and drummer Ira Elliot – joined by Doug Gillard on second guitar. The first song from the new collection, “Believe You’re Mine,” is available to hear via the bands soundcloud with the album pre-order link live NOW.

LISTEN TO “BELIEVE YOU’RE MINE” HERE
 
This album (their seventh since getting signed to a major in the go-go 90's and scoring a worldwide alterna-hit with “Popular”) is the most representative collection of the group’s two-decade career, all while pushing towards whatever comes next. While the band has always had a surplus of horsepower for velocity rockers and an astounding level of confidence live, they've been gaining the discipline and finesses to change gears, more so with each release. Captured in the album’s 10 tracks is every beloved facet of the band, but You Know Who You Are also finds much on offer that stands apart from anything previously heard in the band’s diverse catalogue.
 
“Sometimes it feels like, to our audience at least, we are two or three different bands at once,” says Caws. “It seems some people are looking to feel better, for encouragement getting over their obstacles, for help figuring life out… not that I've done that myself, other people are looking for love songs, and then some others just want to rock.”

MY OWN PET RADIO RELEASE ALBUM ‘GOODLUM’ AHEAD OF DEBUT AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Ball Park Music’s frontman Sam Cromack, under his solo moniker My Own Pet Radio, is pleased to announce The Goodlum Tour in support of the release of his debut album ‘Goodlum’.

Don’t miss the intimate shows at Newtown Social Club in Sydney, on Thursday 12 November, Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane, on Saturday 14 November, and Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on Saturday 21 November.

"This is the first ever MOPR tour. The brand new line-up consists of great friends and even greater musicians. My best friend Ben Fahey joins on guitar/keys and another dear friend, Alex L'Estrange - who drummed on and mixed the record - will weirdly be tonking away on the bass. We're also super fortunate to have recruited the drumming tour de force that is Ryan Strathie (HKOH, Holy Holy, Andy Bull, Sans Parents). It's a real dream band."

 ‘Goodlum’ is set for release on Friday 25th September. The album stands to offer a fresh perspective to those already familiar with Cromack’s acclaimed songwriting. The record sees him returning to his beloved DIY studio to sift through years’ worth of demos, beats, samples and unfinished songs. The record shows him delving into new sonic ideas and unexplored songwriting territory; marrying his love of glitchy, downbeat electronic music with the unbridled humanity of acoustic instruments and real players. From the quiet poetic stylings of Elliott Smith to the rambling guitar solos of Neil Young; from the smouldering drum manipulations of Four Tet to the whispering wonders of Sparklehorse; ‘Goodlum’ sees Cromack touch base with his favourite influences in order to produce a sound truly his own.

‘No Great Mystery’ is the first single off the album gaining momentum through high rotation status on triple j, debuting at #14 on the AIR 100% Independent Radio Chart and scoring ‘Single of the Day’ status via The AU Review. You can listen to the single HERE or watch the accompanying video, directed by Jaymis Loveday HERE
