Alt-rock five piece, Birds Of Tokyo have dropped their brand new single, Superglue. Teaming up with Stand Atlantic’s Bonnie Fraser, the release arrives alongside a nostalgia-fuelled visual, directed by Zac Lynch-Woodlock.
“We always heard this song as coming from two distinct viewpoints so it made sense to share the vocals and get both sides of the story”, says guitarist, songwriter and producer Adam Spark. "We’re all fans of Stand Atlantic so Bonnie was the first name on our list. Hopefully we can get to play the song live together somewhere when borders eventually reopen.”
Fraser adds, "We are so excited to team up with Birds of Tokyo for Superglue. The guys have been a staple of Australian rock music for years and so when they asked us to be a part of the release it was a no-brainer!"
Last year, Birds of Tokyo released their sixth studio album, Human Design. The record marked a shift lyrically and conceptually, inspired by a tumultuous period in the personal life of frontman Ian Kenny. Leaving behind ambiguous metaphors present in their earlier releases, the band left it all on the table to craft cathartic, relatable and anthemic tracks that resonate with their listeners.
Formed in Perth back in 2004, Birds of Tokyo have grown from independent roots to become one of Australia’s most popular contemporary rock bands. The five-piece have performed at every major festival in Australia, including Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival and Groovin’ The Moo, with mammoth headlining slots at the AFL Grand Final andNRL’s flagship State of Origin game. Their singles Good Lord, Two of Us, Plans, Lanterns, Brace and I'd Go, have all been top 10 airplay hits and gained the band a legion of fans nationwide.
