THUNDER PERFUME is out now!
Aotearoa born, Melbourne/Naarm-based artist dœgægé has dropped his new single, THUNDER PERFUME, taken from his forthcoming debut EP GOBLIN BLISS ETERNAL RELIEF. To celebrate the release, the musician is taking us behind-the-scenes of the making of the track
"I think this one is my favourite song I’ve ever made. It’s one of the best examples of my sound & style. THUNDER PERFUME is the song that initiates the EP, setting the tone for the entire project. It plays with the idea that souls don’t die, with a naïve perspective of life. I made it with a horrible dented microphone, I remember completing the song in only an hour.’ dœgægé shares.
The musician will return to the stage on August 10 at a secret location in Melbourne to celebrate the release of GOBLIN BLISS ETERNAL RELIEF. Tickets are on sale now!

Step one is embodying a phoney rockstar anima, none of the other steps work without this. Very vital requirement.

Life changing big muff pedal for my birthday, I’m so smashing pumpkins, like 1 to 1 practically indistinguishable.

A place to channel inspiration…. I channelled soooo much inspiration.

Making sure my safe music space is secure, I can’t have anything throwing off my aura and vibe.

The Adidas sponsorship that is 100% legitimate played a huge part in the creation of this song.

I scrapped the whole song and rewrote it at 3:33am, feeling bewitched as fucked. The song you hear today was conceived in this moment.

The song comes out today but I got this plaque shipped to me in advance, what can I say.
