Hot Pink, the new single from Cousin Tony's Brand New Firebird
“Deep vocal-ed, imaginative, handcrafted indie masterpieces” – Subba Cultcha
“An act set to blow up.” – The Music
“One of the hottest exports to come out of Melbourne in recent years" – The Fountain
Premiered by The Music and available everywhere from today, ‘Hot Pink’ is the second taste of the upcoming sophomore album ‘New Romancer’ from popular Melbourne act Cousin Tony's Brand New Firebird. Produced and mixed once again by Matt Neighbour (The Avalanches, Courtney Barnett, Matt Corby), it’s a joyful and danceable explosion of a track that might be the band's most immediate single to date.
Frontman Lachlan Rose says of the song: “Hot Pink captures the dangerous but simple pleasure of relapsing into memories that you perhaps perceive to be more colourful than your present reality. Memory is an important theme of this record and of heartbreak itself - Hot Pink is a twisted celebration of that theme.”
Currently smack bang in the middle of a national headline tour of Australia, the ‘bird is set to make their first trip to the UK in May for shows in London, Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester and Brighton.
