Sitting at over 20 million streams, having played the likes of Glastonbury and Falls Festival, an Australian support slot with Rufus under their belt and a series of forthcoming UK / European shows in October, Byron Bay electronic four-piece Tora announce their debut album ‘Take A Rest‘. Set for release 9 June, the outfit drop the second cut from the album – the lush, layered sounds of “Another Case,” which they will perform live on their Australian album tour this June before heading to Europe and the UK.
Singer Jo Loewenthal details the album:
“Most of the songs on the album have been written over the last 2-3 years and were influenced by experiences we had whilst touring the world, resulting in quite a broad sound. We borrowed a few synths from friends, and we recorded a lot of organic sounds in the cactus garden at Jai’s house, where a lot of the songs were produced. Some of the songs have flies, bamboo creaking in the wind, washing machines and even the sound of us scraping and hitting cactuses with rakes.”
Produced and mixed by the band in the idyllic surrounds of Byron Bay, before being mastered by Grammy nominated Engineer Andrei Eremin (WAFIA, Chet Faker & Hiatus Kaiyote), “Another Case” follows on from the intricate first single “Amsterdam” – a track which traverses from pocket grooves and bass-driven beats to soaring vocals.
