Premiere: Naarm/Melbourne band Jazz Tiger signs to False Peak Records and exclusively unveils a soothing sonic journey to ‘Batemans Bay’ ahead of debut album.

Ultra cool Brisbane label False Peak Records has announced the signing of Naarm/Melbourne band Jazz Tiger and we are honoured to premiere their first single on the label, the atmospheric and languid ‘Batemans Bay’. Like warm summer shower, the song flows with a soothing delicacy, dappling guitars and a frisson of melancholy augmented by the harmonies in the chorus. A weeping violin adding a haunting texture.

The result is something quite hypnotic and enchanting as the intensity picks up and then recedes like waves on a sandy beach. The band says of the track:

Batemans Bay is based on a long trip interstate, travelling to a wedding. It details the intrinsic thoughts on the complexities, dedication and commitment to someone you love forever. Delving into if love is forever, how the current challenges and complexities of everyday life can have an impact on this love and whether a marriage can withstand this pressure in modern times and whether anyone else at the ceremony feels this way or am I alone in this thought process?

There is an aching beauty in the delivery. The track comes with a suitably enigmatic video which sees the band performing, trance-like, interspersed and bisected with fuzzy scenes of nature: a transformative collage of evocative visuals:

‘Batemans Bay is released digitally tomorrow via all the usual download and streaming sites, and heralds the band’s debut album ‘Shooting Stars In My Blind Spot’ later this year.
