Exclusive: Stream The Pink Tiles' butt-kicking new album, #1 Fan, a week out from release

The Melbourne-based rock'n'rollers latest is an absolute pearler.

Mashing snarling garage-rock riffs with 60s pop to perfection, The Pink Tiles’ second album, #1 Fan, is an absolute joy to behold.

It comes after a couple of ripping singles in For Tomorrow and Time For Love, and backs up the boundless good times that were had with their debut self-titled record. Led from the front by Victoria de Fruita and Mara Williams, #1 Fan is as infectious as it is rocking as it is supremely fun. And like any good record, they're not afraid to delve a little deeper into social commentary, like on Internet, which blends seamlessly with tales of love and heartbreak like on For Tomorrow and Writer's Block.

On the album, Williams said that inspiration "comes from experiences and environments, other people's stories, playing music in a band, Internet anxiety, fear of failure, dysfunctional relationships and turned into 2-3 minute sugary pop narratives... It took maybe two years to make - from recording mixing, mastering, pressing, artwork, [and] they're a collection of songs written over three-year period in laundromats, dark rooms, on late nights, and quiet afternoons, walking down the street, and via dreams."

As rock'n'roll ready as it is dancefloor focused, #1 Fan is a rawkus good time from start to finish, and we're very excited to premiere it a week out from its official release next Friday 24th of March, and the album's launch on April 8 (more info HERE).
