Meanjin/Brisbane dream-pop duo Sunbather return with the release of their spirited new single Out Of Context. The track channels newfound energy and positivity for the duo, with a play on traditional song structures.
Out of Context fastens Sunbather’s ability to create music that fuses the spirit of enquiry and curiosity. On the track, they explain “The song is about change, and the new perspective that it brings. The lyrics were written while walking, inspired by being outside on a cold morning, when the world seems clear and sharp, the wind is blowing, and it’s like you’re seeing everything with new eyes. Love weaves hope through the good, the bad, and everything in between, and Out Of Context was written in that spirit.”
Produced and mixed by Aidan Hogg (Jaguar Jonze, Holy Holy, Asha Jefferies), and mastered by Matthew Gray (Carmouflage Rose, The Veronicas) Out of Context draws elements from the duo’s rock/alternative sonic landscape and highlights them with Sally’s dreamy pop-inspired vocals.
This breezy new single follows on from their debut EP ‘Brown Bread’ which was released in 2020. Their songs received airplay on triple j and triple j Unearthed, national community radio and rage, as well as praise from Atwood Magazine and NME Australia. Sunbather has played at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl 2021, Felon’s Barrell Hall and supported Brisbane artists Hallie and Ayla.
