Brisbane alt-rock, electronic outfit Strangely Enough return with the follow-up single to their debut release ('Change') with 'Graceville' available tomorrow (15 June).
But today, scenestr is amped to premiere 'Graceville' and its synth-heavy ride that has a strong Radiohead vibe with a hint of Keane.
Formed in 2017, Strangely Enough is fronted by Brisbane-based multi-instrumentalist and studio engineer Greg Olley. "'Graceville was written in the middle of the Australian desert," Greg says.
"The power of the landscape made its way into the bones of the song, while the lyrics, about a search for utopia, reflect the vast loneliness of the red earth and endless sky.
"'Graceville', after dozens of iterations, was finalised in the front room of an old Queenslander with grand, high roofs, funnily enough in the Brisbane suburb Graceville."
Greg has pieced together this new alt-rock/ electronic group featuring Adam Brill of Faux Bandit (guitar and synth), Zac Sakrewski of Valtozash and Milton Man Gogh (bass) and Ben Shannon of Kodiak Empire (drums).
Strangely Enough launch 'Graceville' at The Bearded Lady (Brisbane) 7 July.
