Great Gable have you sorted with new music and a national tour! The Perth four-piece have dropped their new single Hazy, which arrives alongside an official visual, directed by Jeremy Hancock. Alongside the release comes the announcement of a national tour and their signing to Matt Corby and Alex Henriksson's label, Rainbow Valley Records.
Kicking off in Hobart on March 17, the run of shows will continue on to Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Byron Bay and Brisbane, before wrapping up in Adelaide. The shows follows the bands 2020 tour of their home state of Western Australia, which came to be after band were forced to postpone their Australian and New Zealand tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Hazy started out as some happy sounding chords that I’d play most days during lockdown, before we were able to meet up in person and jam together. It’s about trying your best to stay positive during uncertain times,” says bassist Chris Bye of the track. “We had such a rad time shooting the film clips at Rainbow Valley, especially working with someone like Jez who has so much experience. He had the cameras on us all day but we didn’t even know!” says frontman Alex Whiteman of the visual
Speaking of the signing, ARIA award-winning artist and producer Corby and his long-time producer, writer and collaborator, Henriksson share, “To work with a real band in a world full of fake overproduced and sometimes exhausting music is a blessing. Great Gable is as real as they come. They know what it takes to be one of the best and are on a constant pursuit of this dream. There are no fancy tricks to get it to where it is, only solid musicianship, attention to detail and an honest connection to the musical spirit that guides us all.”
The bands debut album Tracing Faces offered a continued exploration of the sound the band have been building upon, taking their to new levels. The collection of songs are an incredible showcase of each members musicianship and talent, full of catchy melodies and guitar lines that will be stuck in listeners heads.
