MP3 – “Say No to Thugs”
VID – “Say No to Thugs“
Premiering today on Rose Quartz, “Say No to Thugs” is the first downloadable .mp3 from Lost Animal’s debut LP Ex Tropical, due January 29th, 2013. Already a critical favorite in his native Australia, we’re thrilled to be bringing Jarrod Quarrell and bandmate Shags Chamberlain’s eclectic, island-inspired sound to virgin ears in America and abroad. The song’s latent darkness (“The waves, the waves, the waves keep on rolling out to get ya”) sets the tone for Ex Tropical‘s wealth of eccentric outback pop and immersive ambient landscapes.
Next month, Lost Animal share the stage with space rock legends Spiritualized, and they’re set to participate in Feburary’s ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror festival in Melbourne with My Bloody Valentine, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Swans, Thee Oh Sees, and more. Complete details below.
