City Calm Down announce album release date, share new single
Joan, I'm Disappearing is taken from the band's long-awaited second album Echoes In Blue, which will arrive on April 6.
After becoming one of Australia's most adored indie groups with their sensational debut album In A Restless House, Melbourne four-piece City Calm Down are set to do it all again this year with album number two. After teasing the album and its creation with their two 2017 singles in Blood and In This Modern Land – the latter of which's long-winded and densely layered sound created something really quite epic, the group have officially announced their sophomore record with the release of Joan, I'm Disappearing – the album's latest cut. It's a tender and emotional single which puts forward everything we've come to love from City Calm Down but in a way quite different and unique to the rest of their catalogue, further solidifying the group as one of Australia's best (not that anyone was really thinking otherwise at this point).
Echoes In Blue, the second album, will arrive through I OH YOU on April 6, but it already sounds like an absolute cracker of a record. "We wanted to start opening new doors," says Jack Bourke, lead vocalist of City Calm Down, on Echoes In Blue. "But we weren’t really thinking about what might follow. We were conscious of not repeating ourselves, while also wanting to keep some of the things we really liked about the first record: aspects of the sound palette and emotion."
