Woodes announces headline tour with new single, Change My Mind
The quickly-rising Melbourne musician will be touring the country – including Adelaide and Perth in September.
Our love affair with Melbourne musician Woodes has been incredibly well documented over the last few years. After initially capturing our attention with her collaborational project with Elkkle, Woodes has continued to impress us time and time again, most notably on her incredibly fleshed-out and slick new EP Golden Hour, which arrived earlier this year with one of the most comprehensive track-by-tracks we've ever hosted on the ol' site. Her new single Change My Mind sees Woodes enter a new era, bursting out of the gates with her first single since the EP, a single that comes with a bunch of headline shows in September.
Written in an APRA AMCOS Songhubs writing camp in Auckland, Change My Mind is an upbeat, electronic-driven return from Woodes that combines these natural landscapes and slight acoustic melodies with this pulsing back-beat that further pushes Woodes into a more electronic-leaning direction. It's a great mix, and sort-of aurally maps out this vast natural landscape – something which probably came from the single's natural inspiration: "New Zealand is one of my favourite places to go to escape and the first day I was there, this song came out," she says on the single. "Mountains and epic landscapes outside the window. The first week was spent writing and the second was a break on the South Island, roaming around on the edge of bright blue lakes, climbing rocks and finding secret beaches."
The single arrives ahead of a slot at Splendour In The Grass this July, but following that, she's kicking off an Australia-wide headline tour that includes her first headline shows in Perth. Catch Woodes and her live band's enchanting and captivating live show in person in September – full dates below.
