City Calm Down tease their new album with a new single, In This Modern Land

The moody, five-minute epic is one of their best yet.

After the release of their spectacular debut album In A Restless House last year, City Calm Down are already charging towards the release of their sophomore follow-up, which is expected to arrive in early 2018. First teased with the soaring call-to-arms Blood, the road to the band's second album has already given us a couple of this year's best singles, most notably, the slow-burning track Blame and now, a five-minute epic titled In This Modern LandIn This Modern Land encapulates everything we've come to love from the group in a long-winded, heavily layered epic, with Jack Bourke moody, almost Matt Berninger-like (The National) vocals hauntingly capturing us amongst the flurry of synth, guitar and percussion that drive the single's instrumental. With In This Modern Land being another A+ single from the group this year, it looks like their forthcoming sophomore album may just trump their last. "In producing this album, we wanted to introduce new musical ideas whilst retaining the many production qualities and melancholic tension present on In A Restless House," Bourke said on the record. "It was difficult getting the balance right between stepping too far to the left and repeating ourselves. We certainly learnt a lot as a group."

The group will be touring the country early next year as a part of the Laneway Festival team. Check out the full line-up, dates and more information HERE.
