Sounding completely fresh and new, and yet irresistibly familiar all at the same time, Hermitude’s new single ‘Northern Lights’ will lure you in with its light beginnings, before pulling you under with its earth-shattering drops. Sonically reminiscent of their mammoth single, ‘The Buzz’, which saw the Blue Mountains duo rise to International success, ‘Northern Lights’ signifies their most bright and brash release thus far.
Flexing new sounds on previous singles ‘Stupid World’ and ‘Every Day’ allowed them to introduce more intimate and chillaxified aesthetics in their work, paving the way for this glorious, calamitous, momentous release… “We have arrived and tbqh the track bangs hard!”
Joining Hermitude on this track is co-writer Soaky Siren (US) and rapper Vory (US), courting each other in an old-school lovers’ duet. Reaching new heights with each release, the duo have found inspiration from working with a myriad of vocalists on their new music. Hermitude explain further, “Northern lights’ is part homage to early dance and rave music, which we love, but also mixed with a signature Hermi drop that's likely to blow a few wigs back! Having Soaky Siren and Vory on the track is the icing on the cake that makes it shine.”
Joining the boys across all Australian dates will be interstate collective Haiku Hands and NINAJIRACHI, a 19-year old producer from the NSW Central Coast. As a finalist in triple j’s Unearthed High competition in both 2016 and 2017, Nina’s ‘lush and ethereal’ (Indie Shuffle) sounds to the stage, warming things up each night with her chart-topping singles ‘Pure Luck’ and ‘Thursdays’ which has been heard across festival stages at Listen Out, Falls, Groovin’ The Moo and Field Day. Following up to more than 40 shows in 2018, Haiku Hands have firmly established a presence for their tongue-in-cheek, rave inspired bangers that are equally outrageous as they are bold and at times unconventionally pop. Their synchronised dance moves and high energy production have turned dingy clubs into heaving sweaty messes – a sure fire way to warm things up every night!
Accompanying this big song drop, Hermitude today announce their world tour which takes on Australia this November.
