Tales In Space - Release Debut Album 'Formula' & Announce Tour
Sydney electro-pop duo Tales In Space are excited to announce that their long awaited debut album, Formula, will be released on June 6, 2014 via MGM. The band that brought us the 2013 hit single ‘Shades’ will celebrate the arrival of the LP by hitting the road for a five-date tour, including shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Bursting with quirky and imaginative indie-pop gems, Formula builds upon the same rousing, anthemic stylings of ‘Shades’, a track that featured in the top 35 songs played on Triple J in 2013.
From the buoyant, can’t-get-out-of-your-head chorus in ‘Grow Up Together’ to the cosmic rock of ‘In A Million Places At Once’, Formula’s musical nuances are held firmly together by the group’s fun, creative style. A cathartic journey that explores the trials and tribulations of love, life and everything in-between, the uplifting collection will give you that ‘new lease on life’ feeling.
Recorded in their own studio, this is the start of an exciting new chapter for band mates Luke Bert and Simon Widauer. The synth-loving pair met while studying audio engineering, a shared passion that began their musical partnership – forming Tales in Space in 2009. Fast-forward to 2014 and we have Formula – a collection that builds upon years of hard work, cementing their ability to produce an array of infectious, dance-pop numbers.
Tales In Space, who use a montage of samples, loops, radios, keyboards and triggers, won the International John Lennon Songwriting Competition in the ‘Rock’ category last year for ‘Shades’, as well as being a finalist in the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition. The track was on Triple J high rotation for a staggering four months, whilst also receiving solid support from Triple R, 4ZZZ and FBi, to name a few.
Renowned for their animated live show, the upcoming July tour will be a chance for their loyal fans to hear Formula come alive in the flesh!
