Indie Heroes Dappled Cities Return With New Song, Album Announcement & Tour Dates

Written by Emmy Mack on February 27, 2017

Triple j faves Dappled Cities have dropped the flippin’ motherload. Not only have the indie-pop lords delivered a fresh new hymn dubbed ‘Stone Men’ into our eager ear holes this month, the group’s new sonic offering also heralds the arrival of a brand new LP and a fistful of East Coast tour dates.

The three-time J feature album honourees are gunning for an 80% strike rate with their imminent fifth studio LP Five, stylised as |||||, which is due to drop on Friday, 5th May through their new label home, Chugg Music.

It’s freshly-sliced second single ‘Stone Men’ is another lush chiller, threaded with intricate soul-lapping harmonies, toe-tapping grooves and a healthy bit of cocktail lounge sax.

What’s more, Dappled Cities — who FYI have played pretty much every major Aussie festival in their time, from Splendour, Falls and Laneway to Homebake and Big Day Out — are getting ready to Dapple a City near you to toast the release of their fifth LP.

The veteran act will be hitting the road on tour across Australia’s East Coast this May, popping by venues in Melbourne & Brissie plus an intriguingly hush-hush show in Sydney which has yet to be announced.

Wrap your ears around their latest offering ‘Stone Men’, pencil album release date May 5th into your daybooks and catch the band’s full tour details (so far) below.
