Ahead of their national tour (including supporting Pavement) and subsequent SXSW shows, Aussie alt-rockers on the rise Floodlights have dropped their latest single Lessons Learnt, alongside the announcement of their sophomore album, Painting of My Time (out April 21).

An intense and emotional slice of post-punk meets Aussie rock & roll, Lessons Learnt is the follow-up to last October's single Human, and comes alongside an adventurous music video directed by Tim Williams and produced by Amy Pollock/Strange Paradise, and features dancers Michaela Tancheff, Nikki Tarling, and Harrison Ritchie-Jones.

Vocalist/guitarist Louis Parsons explains, “To align with our musical progression as a band, we wanted every aspect around the new album to convey a sense of expansive change. We did this in Lessons Learnt by using new mediums of expression such as dancing and dramatic lighting to capture the essence of the song, as well as giving the viewer a glimpse of what’s to come.”

Floodlight's new album Painting of My Time is out April 21
