DREAMS x SILENCE

Highly danceable, super-sticky, deceptively simple blend of electrified pop” – LA Weekly

 

No One Defeats Us’ funky dance-rock groove” – Stereogum

 

Booming electro-anthem” – Idolator

 

Following their explosive debut song “No One Defeats Us,” DREAMS have dropped their new track “Silence” today via Astralwerks. On the day of their first ever live performance at Coachella, “Silence” reveals a darker side and pulse to DREAMS, led by the brooding vocals of Daniel Johns. The duo also shares a striking video for the track, which can be viewed HERE.

 

Purchase or Stream “Silence” HERE.

 

A much-anticipated debut live set at Coachella this weekend promises high drama and a truly unmissable performance. The only band ever to be booked for the festival before releasing any music, the duo is the highest-billed Australian band. DREAMS will perform tonight at 8:40pm on the Mojave Stage. The duo will also perform next Friday, April 20. Fans can view their performance via the live stream on the Official Coachella YouTube Channel.

 

“Silence’ is a song which came to us after the Charlottesville riots. It broke our hearts to see the violence and hatred that occurred. We wanted this song to elevate the people, let their voices be heard, inspire them with courage and bravery.” Luke Steele (aka Miracle) says of the track. Daniel Johns (aka Dr Dreams), says “The live version is out of this world and we cannot wait to debut it at Coachella. »

 

DREAMS is the realization of a long-time friendship and musical kinship between these two iconic Australian artists. Daniel Johns is best known as the front man of Silverchair whilst the enigmatic Luke Steele fronts Empire of The Sun and The Sleepy Jackson. The artists first met in 2004 when Luke’s band The Sleepy Jackson supported Silverchair on their sold-out Diorama tour.

 

With over ten million albums sold worldwide and an undefeatable twenty-nine ARIA Awards won between both of their respective acts, the pedigree of Daniel and Luke’s new collaboration is unquestionable.

 

Since Silverchair’s debut release “Tomorrow” in 1994, Daniel has taken home a record twenty-one statues, the most of any Australian artist in ARIA history. Daniel has also won APRA Songwriter of the Year three times, and impressively, Silverchair is the only Australian act to have all of their studio albums, five in total, debut at #1 on the ARIA chart.

 

Sweeping the ARIAs clean in 2008 was Luke Steele’s Empire of the Sun, taking home gongs for Best Album, Best Single, Best Group and Best Pop Release. With a total of eight ARIAs and two APRA song writing awards to date, Empire of the Sun has gone from strength to strength internationally, including a spectacular sold out performance at Hollywood Bowl in 2015, in front of an audience of 17,000 US fans.

Cut Copy’s NEW ALBUM, ‘Haiku From Zero,’ Set for September 22 Release on Astralwerks 

Album Pre-Order Launches Today

Cut Copy Announces Fall North American Headline Tour

Stream New Single, “Standing In The Middle Of The Field,” HERE


Haiku From Zero, Cut Copy’s first proper studio album in nearly four years and first for Astralwerks – will be released on September 22. Today, the band unveiled the second single from the album, “Standing in the Middle of the Field.” Amid a backdrop of loping kalimbas, cowbells and bubbly synths, lead singer Dan Whitford’s plaintive voice offers some emotional advice: “You gotta give up the things you love to make it better.” The song announces a theme that percolates throughout Haiku From Zero– the need to cut through the noise, a desire to focus. Listen to “Standing in the Middle of the Field” HERE.

 
“So much of this album is about this mosaic of information, images that we’re surrounded by on a day-to-day basis,” says Dan Whitford. “Sometimes it feels like overload, but there’s a weird random beauty in it. The idea of squeezing poetry from chaos was where the title of the album came from – the idea of finding something poetic in the overload.”

Haiku From Zero is available for pre-order in digital, CD and LP format HERE. Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive the first single, “Airborne,” plus “Standing in the Middle of the Field.” See below for the complete track listing. A 7″ of “Standing in the Middle of the Field” featuring an exclusive b-side will be available to those who pre-order the vinyl edition of Haiku From Zero at select U.S. record stores. The list of participating stores will be announced shortly. 

In addition, today Cut Copy have announced a North American headline tour, which will kick off on November 9 at The Catalyst Club in Santa Cruz, CA. The run will include a November 11 concert at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles and a November 24 show at Terminal 5 in New York City. See below for itinerary. A fan pre-sale for the Cut Copy mailing list begins today at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT. Tickets go on sale to the general public tomorrow, August 11, at 10 AM local time at http://cutcopy.net/tour/. Cut Copy will also perform at several U.S. festivals this fall, including Luna Lights, CRSSD and Austin City Limits.

Written and recorded at studios around the world (Melbourne, Copenhagen, Washington, DC, New York, Atlanta), the nine tracks on Haiku From Zero nonetheless present a united sonic front, due in no small part to the guiding ear of producer Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Neon Indian). Songs like “Counting Down” and “Living Upside Down” offer glimpses of beauty in a state of disco-fueled flux.

“Airborne” met with widespread critical acclaim upon its release last month. Noisey said, “It is classy as shit, and it’s definitely a ‘match your steps to the tempo of the song as you walk down the street’ kind of jam.” Stereogum hailed it as “a disco-pop odyssey that sounds like, well, soaring through the sky, before eventually blasting off into psychedelic bliss.” Consequence of Sound praised the accompanying video, directed by Gerson Aguerri (The Vaccines, Breakbot) of the Barcelona-based production company CANADA, as “magical.” Paste Magazine found it “wildly imaginative” and noted, “[it] follows frontman Dan Whitford as a trek for a late-night munch leads him down a surreal rabbit-hole filled with otherworldly characters and bizarre street views.” View the official video for “Airborne” HERE

Initially a bedroom recording project by Whitford, Cut Copy evolved into a full-fledged band with guitarist Tim Hoey, drummer Mitchell Scott, and bass player Ben Browning. The quartet’s studio albums include In Ghost Colours, which Pitchfork named as one of the best albums of 2008 and among the top albums of the 2000s, and 2011’s Zonoscope, which won two ARIA Awards and was nominated for a GRAMMY.

The band’s songs have been licensed for use in television, games and commercials, including Chevrolet, Netflix, Amazon and Levi’s® #LiveinLevis campaign. DJing and mixes have also been a big part of Cut Copy’s identity – from the band’s famed Fabric mix, Fabriclive.29, to the 2014 Melbourne dance compilation, Oceans Apart. In addition to headlining massive sold-out shows, the band has gained prime slots at prestigious festivals such as Coachella, Ultra and Lollapalooza in the U.S.; Primavera in Spain, Pitchfork in Paris; Summer Sonic in Japan; and Big Day Out in Australia.
