PREMIERE: Humble Armada Serve Up Dreamy Vibes With New Single ‘September 24th’
WA band Humble Armada are set to release their new track ‘September 24th’ tomorrow, and we’re pleased to share early access here for you today.
The rising Perth quintet draw from multiple genres to establish their own brand of shoe-gazey heartfelt rock, appealing to fans of The War on Drugs, POND, Beach House and Babe Rainbow. They’re branching into a slightly different sound in their upcoming releases, in their words: “Our new LP has a dreamier feel with a greater focus on ambient sound, and one that we think appeals to a wider audience of music lovers.”
With healthy servings of dreamy synths, a grooving bass & rhythm section and generous reverberated leadlines, ‘September 24th’ marks a new chapter in their artistry, serving as an expression of their grief. They explain that “the music we’re starting to release now is easily our most emotional. We’re definitely shooting for an audience response that has undertones of nostalgia, loss, and memory. September 24 is one of those tracks we quickly decided would be a lead single of ours and probably the most excited we’ve been for a release”.
The band tracked both ‘September 24’ & their upcoming album themselves in a makeshift studio in WA’s Margaret River region. The single was then mixed by Andrew Lawson (Tired Lion, Eskimo Joe, Gyroscope) at Debaser Studios and mastered by luminary Simon Struthers (Something For Kate, Eskimo Joe, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets).
