Fresh from a video shoot in the states, Gypsy & the Cat are back in their Aussie homeland - hitting the road to promote their new single 'It's a Fine Line'. Xavier took some time to tell us about what audiences should expect on their nation-wide tour and a whole lot more.
Gypsy & The Cat will be back to touring in June, as they celebrate the release of their track, "It's a Fine Line". Their latest album, The Late Blue, is more than a fitting return to form for Gypsy & The Cat, bringing with it great buzz both in Australia and on an international front. The duo have been drumming up love from UK and US industry, so we can only welcome them back properly and advise y'all to get along and check them out!
God bless the singlet-making industry, because it seemed the whole customer base was at The Future Music Festival this past weekend. An insane amount of arms and biceps were on display for everyone to see, and I wouldn’t be too surprised if any other strays from a muscle convention during the week popped on by. The music was probably a secondary thing.
It seems to be mother nature’s tradition to always ensure that Future Music Festival in Brisbane is as wet, rainy and muddy as possible. Future 2013 was no disappointment and it was with poncho in hand, woeful visions of sludge and a heart as heavy as the rain that I set off.
Gypsy and the Cat put on a great show for a big crowd at the Amplifier Bar. Supporting them were New Gods.
Gypsy & The Cat create sounds that make you want to dance in the rain. Not your everyday rain, I'm talking about electrically-charged rain that rebounds off the ground and back into the sky, shooting off colourfully in every direction. That sort of rain. Elke caught up with Xavier & Lionel of Melbourne's Gypsy & The Cat to talk shop about their upcoming album
The line up for the 2013 Future Music Festival has been released and as it promised, it's Dead Set Awesome. Past Future guests and some of the world's hottest acts in trance, electro, rock and pop will be making the journey down under for the national festival next year, raising the bar for the Future Music Festival once more.
The dates for the Future Music Festival next year are below.
Melbourne's Gypsy & The Cat return to the scene with a killer new album The Late Blue. To be released next month, the recent effort from the duo comes hotly anticipated following their debut Gilgamesh. Gypsy & The Cat have also announced that they'll be embarking on their first Australian tour in quite some time in support of the new record from this October, following on from an intensive bout of touring overseas!
Gypsy and the Cat have today released the video for their first single "Sorry" off their new album. Directed by Melbourne's Krozm, the track is a mix of hip hop drums, acoustics and electronics which provides a taste of what's in store with the full record. The experimental spirit of this single is also reflected in the cover art which is the result of the band's collaboration with Sydney-based artist Mark Alsweiler.
In this week's column: Universal and the Parker & Mr. French group team up, Ed Sheeran tops the album chart after nearly a year meandering in it, an opportunity to write music for next year's Sydney Festival, and news from three industry awards nights that occurred last week!
The last day of The Queenscliff Music Festival thankfully provided some welcome respite from the rain, in fact the sun was out and we could once again walk the streets of the pretty little town on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Upon arrival at the festival grounds, Kimbra, the woman out of the moment, was in full flight, belting out a selection of tunes from her hit debut Vows, as well as some newer material.
