The quirky pop outfit will be playing in venues across the east coast and Perth, and will be pushing their fourth album Radlands, which saw them relocate to Texas to record.
On the making of Radlands, band member Blaine explains: “We’ve always wanted to make a record in America and after touring Serotonin the time felt perfect to go and do it. Our first three albums were entirely conceived and recorded in London so going out to Austin felt like the furthest place from everything we knew. We arrived with a handful of songs, but one in particular felt like it captured the spirit of why we had come there. It was called Radlands (a fusion of 1970s Terrence Malick film ‘Badlands’ and ‘Redlands’, Keith Richard’s Sussex estate), which is also what we named our studio;; a big old wooden house on the banks of the Colorado river.”
