While The Ocean Party‘s new single ‘Wading In’ retains the Triffids-esque, Australiana-tinged laze of their previous releases; it’s twang and simplicity keep it refreshing. The track, which was premiered online yesterday, is the first taste of their forthcoming fourth album which is to be released on August 22nd through Spunk Records. The currently-unnamed album is the follow-on from their 2013 LP Split – which garnered the five-piece regular rotation on FBi, triple j, and RRR.
They’ve announced East Coast tour dates to launch ‘Wading In’ shortly before their album release. Dates are:
August 22nd – Circle Jerk at Corner Store, Sydney
August 25th – Northcote Social Club, Melbourne
August 29th – Anita’s, Wollongong
September 13th – Marrickville Bowlo, Sydney (refugee fundraiser)
