New Empire – Say It Like You Mean It (Live at Music Feeds Studio)
We here at Music Feeds were recently lucky enough to have been paid a visit by Sydney band New Empire, right before they kicked off their national tour in support of their third studio album In A Breath. As well as giving us insight into how the record was written, the guys treated us to two stunning live performances of tracks from the new LP.
This stripped-back version of the anthemic Say It Like You Mean It showcases frontman Jeremy Fowler‘s honeyed vocals and Kyle Lane‘s delicate harmonies and intricate guitar work. Even without his drum kit Kale Kneale jumped in with his own vocal contributions and provided that ever important percussive beat for the heartfelt performance.
The band told us that the new record features an array of styles and instruments from across the globe, something they’re excited to translate to the stage on the tour. “It’s not just your conventional alternative rock instruments,” explained Jeremy. “For us it was cool to see it all come together and stretch ourselves.”
