Exclusive Single Premiere: We All Want To "Wish You Didn't Go Straight" (2015)

Brisbane's We All Want To release their new album The Haze at the end of the week and, if we're honest, the sound definitely conjures up the imagery you'd think of when you hear the words 'hazy', 'summer' and even 'nostalgia'. Too often there are songs released that promise to evoke memories of those summers of youthful innocence or the dawns you'd witness as a teen on the beach after a night out (beach kids, you're with me), but they don't deliver the whole way. We All Want To do. The Queensland Album of the Year finalists have delivered an album of compelling and vibrant music, each track having its own identity. We premiere the band's latest single, taken from The Haze, in "Wish You Didn't Go Straight" - get a taste.

Album Review: We All Want To – Come Up Invisible (2012 LP)

Combining the candid honesty of Frank Turner, the addictive pop melodies of The Naked and the Famous, and the haunting male/female harmonies of The xx, We All Want To are, in a few words, bloody awesome.
