Did you know that tomorrow is your day off? Even if it’s not, that feeling you just experienced, that fleeting moment of sweet relief – that’s what this new song Weekend’s Coming is all about. This beautiful slow-burner from Brisbane/Meanjin brass-led octet The Steele Syndicate is out TODAY – September 2.
With a four-piece horn section and equally-weighted rhythm section, the exceptionally talented group’s live raucous energy has made them a festival favourite, with appearances at 2021’s Woodford Folk Festival, Caloundra Music Festival, Mitchell Creek Festival, Tablelands Folk Festival and headlining Summer Sounds in Melbourne/Naarm.
The title track from their upcoming album –and the second song to be released after the brilliantly infectious and cheeky One Beer (Is Never Enough)– has the groovy funk-rockers continuing to impress with Weekend’s Coming.
Taking us on a more heartfelt journey than ever before, Weekend’s Coming is more ‘swoon’ than high-energy tune. And it’s a beauty. Embellished with their signature horn-led magic, the song erupts in cathartic release with blissful harmonies and a singalong outro that feels as uplifting and majestic as a band that is half-brass instruments should.
A sincere and emotive indie-rock number that builds from the mood of a melancholic Monday up to an anthemic cry, it’s a desperate plea for the weekend and everything it represents. Steele McMahon elaborates: “The tune is a cathartic release from the day-to-day grind, and taps into the shared human experience of hard work for something important. Even in the hardest of times, what gets us through is knowing what we’re fighting for. And the weekend is always just around the corner.”
Definitely not strangers to the stage, The Steele Syndicate have played a myriad of festivals and live gigs, and are similarly gaining support from Double J, Australian Music Scene, AAA Backstage, MTV, The Music, LiveWire AU, Scenestr, The Point, as well as a host of community radio stations, the band are taking their raucous and punchy energy to great heights.
