Prepare for Some Quality ‘Lax with Emma Russack’s Album Tour

Emma Russack

Emma Russack has announced she’ll be hitting the road to bring her relaxed brand of indie-pop to the masses in support of her third studio album ‘In a New State’.

Russack has been killing it internationally with the release of ‘In a New State’ on June 10 garnering the praise of Rolling Stone, UNCUT, Vice, and many more.

Singles from the album If You Could See Me Now and My Own Friend are both terrific examples of an artist completely laying their heart down on a track. Brooding guitar and drums lay the groundwork as Russack sings of her independence and freedom, serenading with a voice that sounds out of place for the subject matter in the best possible way.

Think a slow song from Courtney Barnett but with the vocals sounding closer to the dreamy lustre of Beach House.

Wollongong, Melbourne and Sydney are currently on the cards for the upcoming headlining tour, but there’ll be plenty more dates announced.

These dates aren’t the only chance to see Russack in the flesh, and not the earliest either, as she’s supporting Alex Gow and Dan Kelly on their Australian Dreamers tour.

Since touring her sophomore album ‘You Changed Me’ in 2014, Russack has left Perth, moved to Melbourne, and spent enough time there to become mates with psych-legends King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard (who helped on producing duties alongside John Lee of The Ocean Party).

All these changes are reflected in the new material from Russack which paints “memories of me floating on my back in the ocean at Cottesloe, Perth, and feeling free.Walking through Melbourne CBD and realising how I finally feel at home”.

To get a taste of what you can expect when Emma Russack comes to a town near you, give this a listen!
