It’s the return of Sydney trio Art vs Science (Dan Mac, Dan W and Jim Finn) who today share new single ‘SWEAT’. Produced by Kim Moyes (The Presets), ‘SWEAT’ sings of the desire to get back into a buzzing festival crowd, with 90s house notes, disco flavours and a boogie-infused bassline. The new single arrives alongside the very fun, very lively and very chaotic accompanying video, which is a classic addition to the AvS cinematic universe.
Of the release, Dan Mac shares: “SWEAT started in the middle of 2020 lockdown with an instruction from Jim: ‘can you make something that feels like the whole world kicking in as you enter the nightclub and you lose yourself, get carried away and fall in love with a stranger’. I don’t actually like that feeling and prefer to be cool and calm but after hanging up the phone I thought, why not! So I got out my drum machine and put together a bass line and beat, and by the end of the week the chorus was written in my head. A year later we were sifting through our creations and found it again, and loved it. We asked Kim Moyes from The Presets if he could give it some extra production love – happily he said yes! And the first thing he did was delete everything except the vocals and bassline. We’ve never written this way for Art vs Science and it was really fun to just throw the rule book out and do whatever was making our heads nod.”
Marking the front end of an exciting new chapter for AvS, ‘SWEAT’ is set to be followed by a series of B-sides released up until Christmas, kicking some energy into the back end of the year before capping it off with a series of shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney as well as a headline slot at the sold out NYE On The Hill.
The achievements over the past decade for this fiercely independent band are notable: two albums, three EPs, four consecutive years in the Hottest 100, multiple gold and platinum accreditations, a #2 ARIA Chart debut and ARIA Award for their debut album ‘The Experiment’. They’ve dominated festival line-ups, playing almost every major festival multiple times (including an unprecedented three consecutive Splendours), and sold out numerous laps around the country including their latest 10 Years Tour.
