Young Franco

^^

When: Friday 30th November
Where: Metro Theatre

Seemingly right on time, the spectacled Young Franco has returned to his seat at table with a brand new single. And what a fine seat it is! From extensive plays across Triple J, BBC Radio 1, and Beats1 to sold out tours across Asia, Europe and Australia and backing from names such as RUFUS, SG Lewis and Rudimental, the Brisbane/Sydney resident continues to conquer. Off the back of his previous single ‘About This Thing’ the seasoned producer has joined forces with close confidant Maribelle to deliver the funked out ‘Girls Don’t Cry’. A powerhouse in her own right, having previously featured on Skrillex’s OWLSA label along with her prolific solo catalogue, Maribelle also oversees her own publishing company, Defs Not, and Crush Club, a label dedicated to showcasing the new breed of electronic pop talent. In tell tale fashion, this new cut is 100% groove. A track you’ll find impossible to sit still to. Founded on those delectable synth chords fans have come to love, a thick as bassline and playful cowbells, Franco has set his mind to a jam and yet again succeeded. Add in Maribelle’s empowering vocal performance, as she belts out a story of female resilience and ‘Girls Don’t Cry’ is looking a solid record. It’s no surprise these two have struck gold in the studio, after their previous collaboration ‘Miss You’ went gangbusters, clocking over 5 million streams on Spotify along with a host of national/international radio play. Fans will have the chance to cop Franco roadtesting this new piece across the lands as he tackles shows across Europe and Australia for the next three months. For a full run of dates take a look below. Until then wrap yourself in some fresh Franco warmth! Young Franco – ‘Girls Don’t Cry’ is out September 14th via advocates of fair play Of Leisure.

Thundamentals

^^

When: Saturday 1st December
Where: Enmore Theatre

Following the release of lead single ‘I Miss You’, Thundamentals have announced their new album I Love Songs will drop on September 21st, and deliver yet another track from the album, ‘All I See Is Music’. In more news, the hip-hop heavyweights have announced they will be taking their new album on the road for their I LOVE SONGS TOUR. Fans of the group will be familiar with their frequent political commentary, but amongst an increasingly turbulent society, Thundamentals have decided to focus their album on what's been lost amongst the chaos: Love. As a result, I Love Songs is an intensely personal listen, focusing on love in its varying forms, and showing Thundamentals' undeniable writing ability in a more intimate light. "Everyone knows how f**ked we are politically, and Thundamentals have been banging on about it for ten years," Tuka says. "We just wanted to write love songs instead, ones that would actually make people feel calm and connect with people around them”. With the subject matter at hand, it's no surprise that this is Thundamentals' most effortless album, and their quickest to complete. "I really feel like we made it without a lot of preconceptions. It just feels like the most natural, 'true to us' project that we've ever released." Jeswon says. The concept was conceived and executed while the group were touring their 2017 album Everyone We Know, written in candid moments of on-road reflection. I Love Songs explores the isolation and broken romances that happen behind the scenes, away from the sold-out crowds and star-studded festivals. It's an album of stark contrast, and brutally honest introspection that yearns for something more. In terms of production, the album reflects the vast array of emotions explored by the band, while pushing further into the sonic territories of electronica, gospel and R&B. There's the silky modern hum of album opener 'All I See Is Music', 'Eyes On Me' transports you to sunnier times with its warm island embrace, and 'Everybody But You' builds slowly into a mesmerizing sing-a-long at its conclusion. Mostly self-produced alongside acclaimed Sydney multi-instrumentalist Carl Dimataga (Khalid) and featuring guest appearances from Australian upstarts Eves Karydas and Adrian Eagle. I Love Songs is a contemporary and adventurous approach, while still retaining Thundamentals' traditional roots in rap. 2018 marks a 'Decade of the Thundakat', and with 10 years under their belts Thundamentals are now moving with more momentum than ever.

Toto

^^

When: Thursday 3rd January
Where: Hordern Pavilion

They say fashion is cyclical... and they’re right. Truly amazing things never go out of style, regardless of when they first popped up. Toto’s tune ‘Africa’ is one of these things. First heard in 1982, this masterpiece of popular prog has been a staple of pop culture since release. Taken from their massive second album Toto IV, it combined their other calling card Rosanna to introduce Toto to a massive audience. That record would go on to win several Grammy Awards and establish a base from which the band grew into one of the most prolific and durable acts in modern music history. Musically mind blowing and with more hits that you can poke a stick at, there’s no doubt that people will ask “where were you when Toto played the Hordern?” for years to come.

Teenage Fanclub

^^

When: Friday 15th February
Where:
Metro Theatre

Frontier Touring is delighted to welcome back Glasgow five-piece Teenage Fanclub, returning to Australia and New Zealand in February 2019. The iconic ‘What You Do To Me’ rockers will perform four headline dates in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. Over the course of almost 30 years in which they released seminal albums such as A Catholic Education, Bandwagonesque, Thirteen, Grand Prix, Songs From Northern Britain, Howdy!, Man Made, Shadows & Here, Teenage Fanclub went from being scrappy indie underdogs, through band-most-likely-to, eventually arriving at the status they’ve held ever since: one of Britain’s most beloved cult bands. Not liked, or admired, or respected: beloved. Teenage Fanclub’s most recent studio album is their tenth effort, 12 tracks and a textbook representation of democracy in action: 2016’s Here. Formed in 1989, Teenage Fanclub are a rare thing: a group who have grown old with their audience, reflecting their changing lives and shifting concerns. When Teenage Fanclub’s crowd looked at the band in 1991, they saw people just like them: boozy, boisterous and rambunctious. When they look at the band now, they still see themselves in them: they’re like the old best friends you see a couple of times a year, and come away from each meeting with your affections revived. Don’t delay in grabbing tickets to Teenage Fanclub, touring February 2019!
