Joining the lush ecosystem of Australian music under big fish Remote Control, brand new Australian label Barely Dressed is set to turn heads. With the partnership under the belts, artist managers Katie Besgrove and Nick O’Byrne will be delivering an environment of respect and enthusiasm, connecting new creative forces in uncomplicated circumstances. Keep it simple, as they say.
With this in mind, Barely Dressed Record’s first official release comes from newfound supergroup New Gods, with their first debut album Beloved. Led by Dominic Byrne and Adrian Beltrame (both formerly of Little Red) and featuring some of Melbourne’s most prolific and well-performed musicians like Richard Bradbeer (Eagle And The Worm, Dorsal Fins), Sam Raines (Jim Lawrie, Dorsal Fins), and Dale Packard (Ground Components), New Gods are one of the most grounded forces in local music right now.
Beloved will be released digitally on Friday 14th November, with the limited edition 12″ is available now for pre-order from the Barely Dressed site. To celebrate the first release, New Gods will be performing the album in its entirety on the below date:
Friday 5th December
Shadow Electric, Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne + Peter Bibby.
