Following the announcement of a Victorian tour this February, today, Children Collide reveals the bruising and breezy new single Trampoline, alongside a cinematic spectacular via Spinning Top Records. The song is taken from their highly anticipated forthcoming fourth studio album ‘Time Itself.’

A twirling, acid-tinged affair, frontman/guitarist Johnny Mackay describes Trampoline as, “an ode to magnetic, magical and emotionally unavailable unicorns who enter your life and bounce you into space once you form a connection.”

“Sonically, Loren’s production managed to do that thing we love with the song, straddling two eras but still making sense. A lot of this record we were thinking about Sabbath, The Stooges and Sonic Youth but on Trampoline it was late Beatles meeting early Smashing Pumpkins, ” he adds.

Shot in Bellambi, NSW, by director Cybele Malinowski, the visual reverie captures an aura of nostalgia in an avant-garde technicolour suburban dream.

Recorded by Loren Humphrey at Diamond Mine & Stockholm Syndrome in New York City, ‘Time Itself’, Children Collide’s long-awaited fourth studio album will land this year.  The LP will feature the post-punk lead single Aurora, the propulsive Funeral For A Ghost, the aforementioned  Trampoline and all of the unmistakable trademarks of Children Collide.  

A live phenomenon, Children Collide have played sets at SXSW, The Great Escape, Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Groovin The Moo and the Big Day Out. They’ve performed countless sold-out headline shows across the nation in addition to dates in London, Paris, LA, New York and Tokyo.  Following the release, Children Collide will perform a headline tour in Victoria this February with live bassist Chelsea Wheatley, who also performs as Chela.

‘Time Itself ‘ will follow the twice ARIA-nominated band’s third studio album ‘Monument’, released in 2012.  It was another enduringly popular LP, following 2008‘s ‘The Long Now’ and 2010’s ‘Theory Of Everything’, which debuted at #5 on the ARIA album chart and claimed the triple j feature album. Their repertoire includes some of the most well-loved Australian singles of the past decade, a roll call that includes Social Currency, Skeleton Dance, Chosen Armies, Loveless and triple j hottest 100 entries Farewell Rocketship, Jellylegs and My Eagle.
