YES! Our pal Jeremy Neale has released a new track called ‘Hold On Together.’ He is joined in the track by Phoebe Imhoff from Go Violets who featured in his killer In Stranger Times EP. Get dancing by listening to the track below.
Along with the new tune, Jeremy has announced the ‘Hold On Together’ tour, reaching the far stretches of the East Coast this May/June. He hits Sydney at Waywards on May 29 (which is FREE!), Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne on May 30, Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane on June 19, and Sol Bar in Maroochydore on June 20. Tickets on sale now from now. We can’t wait!
The story behind ‘Water Water’ is a captivating one… It’s New Years Eve and Lorely is by herself in the village of Valle de Bravo (which means Valley of the Brave) in Mexico. She’s 5 weeks into a formative writing retreat and alone on the lake with a pile of fireworks and thinking about water – the water around her, the water she can drink and the water she can’t drink and ‘Water Water’, the song she was working on that day as time slowly passed into the new year – a year she would markedly spend making her debut album.
In anticipation of her first full-length release, EmpressOf will bring her unique blend of deeply personal yet incredibly celebratory dance music to the stage for supporting shows with Jamie xx and Jon Hopkins and Florence & The Machine this spring. Additionally, she’ll return to the festival stage for performances at The Great Escape and London Calling, and starting two weeks from today, she will be hosting a five-nights-straight live residency at NYC venue Elvis Guesthouse. Each night supported by a to-be-announced cast of notable artist friends and creative collaborators, contributing DJ sets and just maybe even a couple spontaneous live sets.
Happy release day to our friends Alabama Shakes! Their second album ‘Sound & Color’ is out today.
The band have been super busy, visiting Australia and killing it at Bluesfest.
Our friends at The Herald Sun had a chat with the band when they were down under and gave their album a whopping 5 stars! Read the interview HERE.
You can also read an incredible review by The Saturday Paper here.
As The Saturday Paper says “Ladies and gentlemen, this is the real thing: real music made by real musicians for right now.”
