ARIA-nominated act Hermitude are hitting the road! The duo have announced a string of wast-coast tour dates, following the release of their collaboration with The Jungle Giants, When You Feel Like This.
Kicking off in Sydney on June 2, the Mirror Mountain Tour will continue on to Brisbane on June 10, before coming to a close in Melbourne on June 11. The Sydney leg of the tour will run as part of VIVID's 2022 programming. Along for the ride is Eora/Sydney-based DJ Dameeeela and Melbourne-based musician Juno Mamba. Head to the bands website to gain access to pre-sale tickets.
Serving as the latest taste of their forthcoming album Mirror Mountain, When You Feel Like This brings together Hermitude's spellbinding production, married with The Jungle Giants’ frontman Sam Hales beguiling falsetto vocals. Built upon a two-step rhythm, modulated synths and driving percussion run wild beneath feel-good lyricism.
"When You Feel Like This is the positive peak of the album, it's the feel good vibe that we wanted on the record. It was mid pandemic when we were writing and we wanted some positivity to burst through the bleakness of the time. Getting Sam on board for 'When You Feel Like This' was a great experience. He’s one of those people with a really infectious energy and it was super inspiring to be around in the studio. Just good vibes and fun and I think his style was a perfect fit for the positive angle we were looking for with When You Feel Like This and the album." Hermitude share.
Mirror Mountain is out May 6. Watch the visual for When You Feel Like This below!
