Currently touring Australia as part of the Laneway Festival lineup City Calm Down are back with "Joan, I'm Disappearing," a sweeping indie meets '80s synth-pop masterpiece taken from their forthcoming sophomore album, Echoes In Blue.
Channeling the emotion of The National, and the brooding unease of early Editors, "Joan, I'm Disappearing" is a sombre yet catchy pop tune. Frontman Jack Bourke's commanding baritone grabs you by the scruff of the neck as the lush instrumentation fills your heart with a feeling of melancholy. Speaking about the track frontman Bourke commented:
'Joan...’ is about coming to terms with the dissolution of a long-term relationship and how neglect ultimately led to its breakdown.
"Joan, I'm Disappearing" is another step forward for City Calm Down and continues their growth as a band. Coupled with first single, "In This Modern Land," City Calm Down's Echoes In Blue is shaping up as one of 2018's most anticipated albums.
Echoes In Blue is set for release April 6. Tour dates can be found below. To pre-order the album and get more information about the tour click here.
