Off the back of an electrifying east-coast tour, Adelaide pop-punk duoÂ TOWNSÂ reveal Speak For Myself â€“ the latest taster from their upcoming EP ‘Things You Might Feel Sometimes’ to be released on 18 November.
TOWNSâ€™ Dan and Aston say of Speak For Myself,Â â€œThereâ€™s no hiding behind what this song is about, social anxiety. Now I love my friends and being around people from time to time, but there have been moments where I’ve been in situations meeting new people and I lose all sense of my personality and it destroys my confidence. Iâ€™m so aware of everything Iâ€™m doing, I try to be funny to break the ice but it never works, I try to talk about topics I know nothing about to slide in and it just sucks. So I wrote a song about it, everyone can relate to this in some matter because weâ€™ve all felt like we don’t fit in at one point or another and it sucks because I think once you acknowledge the awkwardness it tends to disappear, but for some reason weâ€™re conditioned to be social and conversational experts or weâ€™re the awkward ones, well youâ€™re not alone, Iâ€™m bad at talking too.â€
The new single and video comes amidst a packed schedule for the Adelaide duo who are currently on tour with Brisbane locals Beddy Rays and fresh off supporting Aussie rock icons Dune Rats in August. The self-proclaimed â€œtwo-piece puzzleâ€ have no plans of slowing it down any time soon, set to playÂ The Drop FestivalÂ andÂ Harvest RockÂ later this year.
Blending the essence of modern pop-punk with 90â€™s nostalgia Speak For Myself is another sneak peek into whatâ€™s yet to come from the duoâ€™s upcoming EP â€˜Things You Might Feel Sometimesâ€™ dropping on 18 November. The new music follows on from the duoâ€™s most recent single and video for Season 5 (Break My Fall) and exciting signing with Farmer And The Owl / BMG, home to the likes of Hockey Dad, Moaning Lisa, Bad//Dreems and more.
In 2018,Â TOWNSÂ released their debut EP ‘Television’, which swept listeners off their feet from the first spin with its unique blend of 90s pop rock and Australiana. Â Proving they love all things 90â€™s, the duo have even created a YouTube seriesÂ TOWNS TV, hosting their own nostalgic TV show drawing inspiration from the ever-popular Cheez TV that captivated young Australianâ€™s during the late 90â€™s. The duo has been named â€˜Best Rock Groupâ€™ three years running for the South Australian Music Awards.Â
TOWNSÂ continue to deliver their good-time vibes with their live shows, having joined fellow AdelaideansÂ Teenage JoansÂ on a sold out co-headline tour, they also hit the road for their own headline shows and supportingÂ Ruby Fields,Â playing to packed out venues and bringing the high octane energy they are known for. Â This is in addition to supports forÂ The Jungle Giants, WAAX, Bugs, Dear SeattleÂ among many others. They have also been regulars on the festival circuit appearing on the bills of Yours & Owls Festival, Groovin’ The Moo, Falls Festival, NYE On The Hill and Spin Off Festival.
â€˜Things You Might Feel Sometimesâ€™Â is out on Nov 18, but available to pre order now on Limited Edition Marbled Pink Vinyl, or as part of an album bundle. Pre-order the EP HERE.
