With a worldwide online premiere running exclusively on Pitchfork right now (click here to listen), “Dojo Rising” marks a brave new direction for the Sydney via Blue Mountains quartet, while maintaining that Cloud Control charm that won them so much acclaim on their debut “Bliss Release”.
Having already received spins on airwaves around the world, with Australian youth station triple j instantly adding it to rotation and influential DJ Zane Lowe (BBC1) giving the track its UK premiere last night, “Dojo Rising” is the first offering off the band’s highly anticipated sophomore album “Dream Cave”, out 9th of August.
The band shacked up in the picturesque English countryside of Kent with producer Barny Barnicott (The Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Spiritualized) to put down the 11 tracks that make up “Dream Cave”, a record that promises to cherish their elegant psychedelic pop, whilst exploring a treasure trove of new influences and a progressive direction.
The band recently treated audiences to a healthy slice of new material at their “VIVID Festival” performance, for which The Guardian gave them a solid four-stars (read the full review here).
The band will return to Australia in July for a performance at this year’s “Splendour In The Grass”.
