ALBUM NEWS: Tempesst - 'Must Be A Dream'

Dreamy news for your Thursday! It may be drizzly outside, but Tempesst are back with their gorgeously sunny vibes with new single On The Run and they're not stopping there.... they've got a debut album on the horizon, Must Be A Dream (that's the album name but it is also a dream, I'm sure) which is due for release via Pony Recordings on September 30th. 

The new track, vocalist Toma Banjanin explains, "was written about a close friend who disappeared for a decade and returned as someone completely different, and it's an ongoing trauma. When I connected the music to the lyrics, to try and finish the song, it felt like it had a rolling rhythm, so the chorus fell into place from there. For me, this song carries a lot more emotional weight." 

The video for the track, below, is directed by Toma's twin brother Andy Banjanin, the drummer in the band and no stranger to the blog - he's directed videos for the likes of Geowulf and Pêtr Aleksänder

The new record was produced by the band's longstanding collaborator Elliot Heinrich and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet CourtsTemples). Though the band are predominantly Australia born - with the brothers being joined by fellow Aussies Kane Reynolds (keys) and Blake Misipeka (bass) and Swiss/American guitarist Eric Weber, they're all now residing in London. That's where the album was written and recorded, in the band's own Pony Studios, a studio space that the band built themselves in Hackney. Can't wait to hear more!!
