REVEAL NEW SINGLE
‘I THOUGHT WE KNEW EACH OTHER’
& ANNOUNCE HUGE NATIONAL TOUR
‘Is there anything harder than watching something beautiful die? The human instinct is to hold on but, all too often, we realise that there is nothing left to do but let go.’
Following its premiere on triple j, British India’s new single ‘I Thought We Knew Each Other‘, takes that moment and holds it up to the light.
Layered in a film of shimmering strings and guitars, and with an unrelenting break-beat to match, the hushed intensity of the song’s verses make way for the dizzying rush of a mile high chorus. Indeed, ‘I Thought We Knew Each Other’ sees the band’s effortless intensity honed razor sharp.
Since the release of British India’s last long-player, the inventive and original Nothing Touches Me – which landed neatly in the ARIA Albums Chart at an impressive #5 – the Melbourne based four-piece has been somewhat quiet, bunkered down in the studio. ‘I Thought We Knew Each Other’ smashes that silence; the song harnesses the stylistic innovations of Nothing Touches Me and synthesizes them with the wide-eyed fury of the band’s earliest offerings.
In support of the new single, and following last year’s hugely successful album tour – which included multiple sold-out shows in Melbourne and Sydney – and rave reviews for performances at this year’s Groovin The Moo, British India will return to the road for an epic 20+ date jaunt. As part of the tour, the band will take their high-octane live show to twelve regional centres along with six capital cities.
Now with a whopping four Top 10 ARIA albums under their belt, seven entries into the coveted ‘Hottest 100’ countdown, and over 10 years in the biz, there is no stopping this indie-rock juggernaut.
‘I Thought We Knew Each Other’ is released this Friday September 9. Tickets for the tour are on sale Thursday 9am. Don’t miss out!
