Flyying Colours have announced a brand new album. The Melbourne group are set to release their second album, “Fantasy Country”, on Friday 26 February. 

“This album was supposed to now be 6-12 months old,” said songwriter and guitarist Brodie J Brümmer of the album.

“We take touring and supporting our music live quite seriously so it would have been very difficult for us to put out this album in the early stages of the pandemic… but here comes a time now where we need to get these songs out there and make it work in any way that we can.”

The band have announced a tour in celebration of the release, which will kick off at Adelaide’s Grace Emily on release day. They’ll then head to Melbourne’s Corner Hotel, Brisbane’s The Brightside and wrap up at Sydney’s Lansdowne Hotel. 

Big Mess” by Flyying Colours Released via Club AC30 (UK & Europe) and Poison City Records

After two critically acclaimed EPs, Flyying Colours are set to release their second album  ‘Fantasy Country’ later this year on Club AC30. Residing in a dream-world that sits somewhere between psych, indie, grunge and shoegaze, the Australian band’s beautifully dynamic new offering showcases their talent for uniting a delicate vocal melody with a satisfying thick wall of abrasive drums and guitars. Flyying Colours premiere their video for Big Mess and let’s just say, we haven’t seen such an aptly named video for a while.

“The video for Big Mess was made with our long time collaborator Thomas Russell,” explained vocalist and guitarist Brodie J Brümmer. “We filmed it in the kitchen at The Bergy in Brunswick, across the road from where the guitars for the album were tracked. We didn’t think we would make such a mess when filming started but as you will see things escalated and we ended up covered head to toe in unbaked sponge cake.

“That’s what happens when you spend as much time with one another as we do and you have an opportunity to crack an egg over your bandmate’s head. “I think the video kind of represents what the song is about – doing what you think is right, but ending up making a big mess of an entire situation. As for the recipe, I wouldn’t suggest trying it at home.”

Leading track and first single “Goodtimes” further stirs the melting pot. Opening with a chaotic looped squeal, the knockout punch of the frenzied opening riff and steady, driving drums sets the bar high for the tracks that are to follow.

For most of their career, Russian trio Pinkshinyultrablast established themselves as one of shoegaze’s finest outfits. While Slowdive and Ride were on hiatus, they filled the void with the expansive, chiming flair. For their third album, Miserable Miracles, however, the band expand their reach and unveil their most expansive LP to date.

Miserable Miracles is more than just a record. It is an experience that features three destinations (or layers if you will). The first is the dance floors of Earth. The intoxicating opener “Dance A.M.” buzzes with bubbly synths and percolating beats On “Eray”, the threesome head back in time and the age of early ’80s new-wave disco. A psychedelic-disco vibe, meanwhile, percolates on fantasy-like “In The Hanging Gardens”, which is as imaginative as Tim Burton’s films.


The heavens is the next stop. The groovy and relaxing “Triangles” is the soundtrack to the journey through the clouds. Upon arrival, the soft notes of “Blue Hour” and the gorgeous “Find Your Saint” welcome all newcomers. Beyond the clouds awaits the cosmos, which is where Pinkshinyultrablast reside.

In The Hanging Gardens was released on February 23rd, 2018 via Club AC30 and Shelflife Records,

The striking instrumental “Earth and Elsewhere” is an alluring spectacle while “Looming” is Pinkshinyultrablast as their dynamic shoegaze best. Whether they send listeners floating through galaxies or grooving in little clubs, Lyubov (vocals), Rustam (synths/electronics), and Roman (guitars) demonstrate they can appeal to all of our senses. They show there is more to their art than meets the eye.

Miserable Miracles is out now via Club AC30.

Fever Dream impress on ‘Heads Will Roll’

London trio Fever Dream are releasing their new album ‘Squid’ this Friday (29th September) via AC30, and we’ve got the first play of the latest of its tracks titled ‘Heads Will Roll’ .

‘Heads Will Roll’ is a swirling storm of a track, with barely contained reverb mixing with washed out vocals. Straddling the line between shoegaze and grunge, it’s an intoxicating blend.

The band are set to play an album launch show at the MOTH Club in London this Friday (29th September) to celebrate the release of ‘Squid’.
