The mighty World’s End Press came by Music Feeds Studio to promote their self-titled debut album and they brought a whole lot of moves with them. Their performance of the ’80s-tinged Drag Me Home got everybody moving. The Pet Shop Boys-like synths and frontman John Parkinson’s emotive vocals make for a stellar, dance floor-ready mix.
We also had a quick chat with the Melbourne natives, during which we discussed the recording of their debut album at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales. “If you’re not acquainted with Rockfield, it has sort of a crazy British rock heritage. We got to record like a band may have in the ’70s, in isolation in the quaint Welsh countryside.”
Having released an acclaimed EP in 2010, the band’s 2013 album seemed to come out right out of the blue for many fans. However, as the boys explain, it was a matter of “waiting for the right opportunity, the right guy to work with”, adding, “We ended up working with Tim Goldsworthy… it took a while to get it right.”
