Melbourne raconteurs The Attics reveal new indie jangle ‘Pastel Blues’ and announce a short run of upcoming shows
Melbourne indie outfit The Attics are excited to reveal their latest psych-pop jangle ‘Pastel Blues’ and announce a small handful of upcoming live shows. Following on from their previous single ‘Ultramarine’ and fun-as-all-heck single launch at The Grace Darling last month, the country-Victorian born four-piece will play a handful of intimate live shows to celebrate the shiny new release.
An introspective narration, the new single captures the ponderings of an escapist rotating through the daily 9-to-5. ‘Pastel Blues’ is much more opaque than its title suggests, beaming with bold hooks and playful arrangements that are captivating and instantly recognisable as their own. As with the dynamic ‘Ultramarine’, ‘Pastel Blues’ was once again recorded and mastered by Isaac Barter and co-produced with lead vocalist Cameron Wade, with mixing by acclaimed engineer Steven Schram. Striking, fun and a little bit silly, the single is rapidly becoming a set list favourite at any live show, and is sure to be listed as a staple of many summer playlists to come.
After a recent run of shows opening for indie duo Slum Sociable, as well as past festival appearances at By The Meadow and Canada’s Indie Week Toronto, the four-piece have acquired a live show that is a joy to behold. With dreamy guitar hooks, driving bass lines and heart-stirring percussion, The Attics will bring their signature feel-good vibes to Melbourne, Bendigo, Geelong and Abbotsford in intimate band rooms and outdoor stages over the next couple of months. Catch all the action at the below dates and remember to tie those dancing shoes tight!
