Premiere: HYLA announces Australian tour with grungey new single, Fraction

Taken from HYLA's upcoming new album, Osaka, due September 15.

This Friday sees the release of a brand new HYLA track, Fraction, a track that we just so happen to be premiering for you today. It's exciting for a number of reasons, firstly because it's a great track - exhibiting a tougher, grungier side of the project than we're used to. Frontman Alex Hayes fills us in: "Fraction was one of the heavier songs written for the record and does stray from the dreamy and spaced out side of our music a bit. I guess it's a slight tip of the hat to grungier garage influences, but with a call and response like a 60s pop vocal line. I think I was listening to the a lot of Ty Segall and Black Lips at the time. Lyrically I was writing about feeling limited in realising where I wanted to be, like there was always things getting in the way. So I guess that aggression found its way onto the record in the form of this tune."

The track comes from HYLA's debut album, Osaka, due for release on September 15 and getting a special vinyl release via LXVI Records (which you can pre-order via their WEBSITE). And it looks pretty bloody gorgeous:
