Kiama-based quartet Pacific Avenue have delivered a new slice of indie-rock goodness with their new single, Leaving For London, produced by Chris Collins (Skegss, Tyne-James Organ, Middle Kids).
On the track, the band continue to flesh out the threads of Brit-pop in their last single, Give It Up For Yourself, building to a sing-a-long hook that will be buzzing in your head for days to come. The song takes the standpoint of supporting a loved one as they embark on a new journey abroad, made complete with storytelling lyricism brought to life by frontman Harry O’Brien's captivating performance.
“Leaving For London is about loving and wanting to be with someone, but at the same time ensuring you’re doing what’s best for them, and understanding what makes them happiest, even if that means not being able to be with them. It’s about doing your best at supporting who you love, to become who they want to be.” the band share of the track.
Having wrapped up their own national headline tour in July, the band joined former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson on his debut Australian tour. Next month, the four-piece will join Crooked Colours on their national tour, before taking to the stage at Festival Of The Sun in Birpai/Port Macquarie.

Earlier this year, the four-piece scored the 108th spot in the 2021 triple j Hottest 200 countdown for Easy Love.
