Sydney’s Siren Lines have returned with a brand new track “Always the Same” – a gorgeous reverb-drenched track with more honeyed vocals and singalongs than you can shake a stick at. It is released today along with details of the live shows that go hand in hand with it. The band are working feverishly towards their debut album release, which looks to be due in 2015.
They are doing shows in January and February to celebrate from mid-January to early February, heading into Brisbane at The Triffid, playing their native Sydney at Oxford Art Factory and Bondi’s open air cinema and down into Melbourne at The Worker’s Club and The Espy.
The track drops Tuesday January 13 – today – and it’s a triumph of wonderous songwriting and masterful production by Dave Hammer at Sydney’s Def Wolf Studios, where it was mixed and mastered. The drums were tracked at Brain Studios, Guitars/Bass/Percussion was tracked by the band themselves and vocals recorded with Dave Hammer at Def Wolf Studios.
themusic.com.au describes the quartet as “…somewhere between Foals and Nirvana, is incredibly melodic and a lot of fun to listen to.” They create instantly relatable indie pop rock tunes that fill your heart with equal parts joy, hope and elation. Featuring intricate delay-driven guitar work, pounding, swelling, heaving drum parts, dancing bass lines and alluring and emotional vocals intended to make you swoon, Siren Lines effortlessly fuse eclectic sonic ideas into a cohesive soundscape you will find hard to not connect with.
Backing up their incredible songs is a support and touring history to envy. They have supported artists such as Young Revelry, New York’s As Tall As Lions, UK’s This Town Needs Guns, US songwriter Kevin Devine, The Getaway Plan, sleepmakeswaves, Closure in Moscow and many more.
