Following the announcement of their debut album ‘Tracing Faces‘ out Friday, August 7 via ADA Worldwide and the release of latest new single ‘Blur’, today Great Gable shares the majestic new album track ‘I Wonder’. The Perth four-piece will celebrate this October and November on their biggest tour of Australia and New Zealand to date.
‘I Wonder’ is a sprawling, soulful journey blooming with lush layers and rich textures. “The song is a snapshot of the first couple weeks of dating someone and not knowing how they feel,” says lead singer and guitarist Alex Whiteman of the track.
The track follows on from the hypnotic and buoyant new single ‘Blur’, which claimed the #2 most played position on triple j, and their addictive lead single ‘All My Friends’.
TRACING FACES sees Great Gable’s classic sound augmented and empowered by producers Alex Heriksson and Matt Corby. Recorded at The Music Farm in Byron Bay, their debut LP is upbeat, yet dreamy, lush and vulnerable as it tackles themes of love, heartbreak and mental health.
“Being engulfed in nature definitely influenced the overall vibe of what we came out with,” says bassist Chris Bye of the recording process. “It was sick working with Alex Henriksson and Matt Corby on the album , they are full legends. They helped us to write better tunes and really inspired us,” adds drummer Callum Guy.
Melbourne-based Velvet Bloom will deliver her unique blend of jazz, pop and soul to all Australian shows. Additional special guests will be announced in due course.
Great Gable has quickly amassed a fervent, die-hard fanbase following the 2019 release of THE LAZY BONES EP featuring singles; ‘I Swear’ and ‘Cool Mind Blue’. Renowned for their mesmerising and commanding live performances, they’ve supported the likes of Ocean Alley, The Jungle Giants, Thelma Plum and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and performed festival sets of Groovin’ The Moo, Falls Festival and SOTA Fest.
