Premiere: Say hello to Tales, and their stunning new single/video clip, So Blue
The Adelaide group ditch their old moniker for new beginnings, and it's off to a great start.
Formerly known as The Winter Gypsy, Adelaide outfit Tales are re-born with a band name and a shift in sonic direction with their dreamy first single, So Blue. Dropping officially today, the song also comes with an equally wistful and a little bit dark video clip, co-directed by Rory Pipan (Mallrat, Tigerlily), Luke Franceschini and Nikita Kimiye. "This clip portrays a man going through the process of dealing with a dark time in his life. It shows the vulnerability in one person, and how it can slowly but surely effect you in times of struggle. It's very imagery- and metaphor-heavy – it’s a piece of art that we're proud of."
On the single itself, they said, "This track was co-written with our friend Timberwolf (Chris Panousakis). We took the song to him with only the chorus written, and Chris really helped bring the song to life for us. For us it’s essentially about living with free minds and not letting little issues strike us down in times of vulnerability. We worked hard to fuse dark and light sounds into this one, so it lifts you but gives you chills too. The build in this track is so epic, it definitely pulls on the heartstrings for us!"
They'll be joining Timberwolf when they launch the single at Crown And Anchor in Adelaide on September 28, but until then be absorbed into the lush soundscape of Tales below:
