Gold Coast indie-rockers, The Vultures, are today honoring the end of summer with their new track ‘Conversations’. Balancing balmy disco sounds with exceptional indie-rock, this single is sure to get hearts racing, and cause temperatures to rise.
Lifelong collaborators Liam Bowditch and Joe Bon MacPhail (The Vultures) have created a steaming, disco-rock track that simmers from nostalgic 80’s pop, into blistering modern synths and heavy riffs. Like a sparkling disco ball igniting a dance floor, Bowditch’s summary vocals light up ‘Conversations’, igniting the track into an unbridled shoulder-shaking, hip-swaying, body-melter. Reminiscent of sounds from Aussie rockers Holy Holy, and Britpop dreamboat Harry Styles, ‘Conversations’ blazes its own clear path. Splashed with dreamlike elements, The Vultures have said the single was inspired by the intense isolation of the Melbourne 2020 lockdowns, “Conversations is about turning to dreams as a mode of communication at the emergence of a newly chaotic world, separated from our family, friends, and the outside.”
In the ever-changing landscape of society and the world at large, the IZTHMI collective found themselves lost in a place that has become less and less recognizable. As the world continues to change in ways that are both terrifying and inevitable, IZTHMI seeks to move forward. Leaving This World, Leaving it All Behind represents the mourning of the losses that we all have endured these last couple of years, and a celebration of the victories and hopes of what is to come. As we leave this world behind, we look towards a better one.
AMBER LEWIS Lips & Teeth LP out Mar 11, HONEY DAYS video and ISLAND TIME single out now
The songs on Lips & Teeth are based in folk, built upon finger-picked guitar, with observational-yet-impressionistic lyrics sung in Lewis’ confident, casual and beautiful voice. Accompanied by percussion, vocal harmonies and other rich, melodic textures, Lips & Teeth is mellow, smooth and pretty, yet far too interesting and textured to sit in the background.
