PNAU soundtrack the season's change with new single, All Of Us

On their first single since May's Solid Gold, the electronic trio welcome a new collaborator in Ollie Gabriel.

Despite only just recovering from an extensive album campaign that stretched from their 2016 return Chameleon (and their simultaneous return to the live circuit) right through to a deluxe, tour-centric edition of the record that arrived amongst festival slots at the tail-end of last year, it's clear that PNAU aren't slowing down. Done with the six-year hiatus between Soft Universe and their comeback Changa record, the trio - one of Australian electronic's long-defining acts since the mid-00s - are now steaming towards their next venture, bookmarked by May's anthemic return Solid Gold; their first solo material since Changa's arrival back in 2017.

Now, moving into spring and thus the festival season, it's clear that the PNAU machine will be heating up again. Over the New Years, they'll perform at Falls Festival and there's no doubt a couple of other summer slots that'll join in the months ahead, but in the meantime, they've welcomed their next taste of what's next with All Of UsAll Of Us is a single that seemingly highlights PNAU's mantra for crafting danceable moments of electronica that are as infectious as they are hyper-accessible and perfect for any mood, strengthening their knack for sweaty dance-pop that this time around, incorporates a new collaborator to their close-knit collection - US vocalist Ollie Gabriel.

"All Of Us is in essence what PNAU has always stood for; togetherness," says Nick Littlemore on the track. I found this feeling as a young teen on the warehouse floors of rave parties and clubs of the underground. As kids in an adult scene we were taken in by the older, wiser revellers; we were open-eyed and filled with wonderment. In those places, those hidden spaces, we found acceptance and love. It’s that feeling, doing what humans from all cultures have done since the dawn of time - we danced. Just like Havelock Ellis had understood, that the ritual of dance is really the most human instinct of all, and dance is full of love and creativity. This song speaks to that sensation. This is our ode to the ritual that we’ve in so many ways dedicated our lives to. You don’t need to know the steps or be an expert; you just need to lose yourself to dance."

There's more to come, but in the meantime, dive into All Of Us below, and be swept up by the group in a live setting at this year's Falls Festival.
