More sets by future classic (67)
Just in time for the Australian Summer, Sydney’s indie-electronic-popettes, Convaire bring the first and title tune from their highly anticipated debut EP, The New You.
Equal measures quiet childhood nostalgia and barefooted Summer festival romance, The New You is a sparkling indication of what Convaire do so exceptionally well – the art of creating synth-happy, ‘80s inspired, chill-sweet pop songs.
Inspired by the likes of Talking Heads, Friendly Fires and Phoenix, Convaire were first given airtime by local Sydney radio heroes, FBI Radio.
Since then, the four-turned-five piece released their first single Gate Track in September ‘10 to national airplay and gushing reviews. Their exceptional reputation was vindicated whilst winning a Triple J Unearthed initiative, which saw the band play alongside Delorean, Kele (Bloc Party) and 2manydjs at Sydney’s iconic dance festival, Parklife.
Two singles, over one hundred shows and a few tambourine shakes later Future Classic saw potential in John Towey’s vocal likening to The Cure’s Robert Smith and the energy of the synth-loving Slattery sisters.
The New You EP is available in a CD + 7 inch vinyl package, which is exciting enough to warrant a shoe shuffle and a couple of hand claps. It will be available to get your hands on in the flesh on the 12th November 2011.
