With just a few days to go until the Friday, 6th September release date of their forthcoming album Leisure Coast, Shining Bird have announced they will be gigging it up along the East Coast, but not before they drop a new single off the album and one of the most effective promo videos we’ve ever received.
Stare Into The Sun marks the second official single to be released off the album, and if it’s anything like its older sibling Distant Dreaming, we can expect tens of thousands of YouTube and SoundCloud hits as fans go nuts for their fix. Already, the track has started to spread amongst tastemaker blogs drawn to the cinematic and lush soundscape.
Of course, many people may not be familiar with the band’s home town of Leisure Coast on the NSW South Coast, a town deemed worthy enough to immortalise via album name, so the band have pieced together a brief video of the attractions the coastal digs boasts. Definitely worth a look.
You may have caught the band perform recently in Sydney at At First Sight record store fair. Music Feeds caught up with the band and you can watch the interview here. Tour dates and details are below.
