When it comes to local Sydney bands fast making a reputation for themselves as a formidable live band on an as-of-late struggling music scene, Lost Tropics are ones to watch. Out of The Shire, the indie pop group have brought influences ranging from The Strokes to fellow Sydneysiders Sticky Fingers together in producing a sound that is fun, memorable and well-produced.
Their single “Charlie’s Van”, which has been circulating online since July, is steeped in the feelings of bittersweetness and nostalgia that surrounds leaving home, growing up and enjoying time with mates while it is available. The music video, premiering today on the AU, was captured by Aaron Bull largely up at St Peters’ One Flight Up Studios and the Brass Monkey in Cronulla, capturing the band in a great space and demonstrating the dynamic between them all.
“It’s essentially a toast to the good times I’ve had with some great people.” Lost Tropics’ Alex Black notes. “In the video, we wanted to give people an impression of what a day in the life of Lost Tropics is like! We work hard in the studio, we give it 110% when we perform live, and afterwards we party like drunken idiots.”
