Delivering what can only be described as cement-punk with forward thinking lyrics, Concrete Surfers land a 360 today with new single ‘My Life On Repeat’ plus the announcement of a forthcoming EP and East Coast live dates.
Grappling with “being stuck in a routine – and becoming unsure of what direction to take moving forward in life,” ‘My Life on Repeat’ is an explosion of fuzz and frenetic fretwork.
However routine and ruts are soon to become a thing of the past in 2019 with the high school mates releasing their second EP also named My Life On Repeat on Friday 22 March. Produced by good friend Alistar Richardson (The Cairos, Zeferelli, Clea) and mastered by Grammy Award winner William Bowden, My Life On Repeat is a step towards a more focused direction for the group.The band have encapsulated the rambunctious nature of their tunes visually too, enlisting Illustrator Freak Street for an eclectic splash of colour that’s going to be hard to pass by when putting together that backyard playlist. Also featuring already released singles ‘VCR’ and ‘Miscommunication’ it’s a perfectly packaged six-track whirlwind.
Their innately aussie rock tunes are connecting live too.Recently selling out out their hometown single launch for 2018’s ‘VCR’ on presales, the track also received rotation on Australian tastemaker station triple j Unearthed as well as spins on national youth broadcaster triple j. Concrete Surfers have also shared stages with heavyweights like like Royal Blood (UK), The Gooch Palms, Harts, Ocean Alley, Pist Idiots, Ruby Fields, Drunk Mums and more recently. All this among appearances at The Blurst of Times Festival, Against the Grain Festival and Beach Sounds with more to be announced in 2019.
To celebrate My Life On Repeat’s imminent release the Surfers are hitting the road. Surf’s up right up and down the East Coast for their first big headline tour this April. There’s only one thing left to do. Just ride the wave.
