Australian electronic duo Hermitude have linked up with indie-rock outfit The Jungle Giants for the latest single ahead of their forthcoming album, ‘Mirror Mountain’. The penultimate single, ‘When You Feel Like This’, is out now and includes a music video.
The track combines metallic synths and rhythms with choir-like vocals. The track will be featured on their forthcoming album, an LP that was recorded at Angus' home on the outskirts of the Blue Mountain town of Blackheath, just as the rest of the world went into lockdown.
Hermitude: “Out of an almost zen-like location, we managed to tap into some properly energised rhythms. You can hear it in the way the drums coil themselves around the closely recorded vocals on the song.”
The single is a collaboration between two of Australia’s musical exports. Consisting of Luke Dubber (aka Luke Dubs) and Angus Stuart (aka El Gusto), Billboard-chart topping outfit Hermitude have been releasing music since the turn of the century. They have since released six albums, most recently last year’s ‘Pollyanarchy’. Hailing from Brisbane, The Jungle Giants formed in 2011 and have since released four full-length albums and two EPs, including last year’s ‘Love Signs’.
‘Mirror Mountain’ is out 6 May via Elefant Traks/Nettwerk.
