Fremantle alternative rockers Figurehead's newest chapter is the party jam 'One More Time'; a lustful track about connecting with a stranger and dancing the night away. . . together.
After a soothing, gorgeous vocal opening as frontman Joe coos about newfound love discovered while out on the town, a hypnotic guitar groove kicks in before the rhythm section takes over with a racing tempo that's complemented by searingly good electric guitar licks that enter at the mid-point of the song.
The follow-up to their previous single 'On Repeat'
(a laidback jam that features Ocean Alley meets Sticky Fingers feels) released in the winter, 'One More Time' will feature on the group's forthcoming EP they recorded with Dave Parkin at Blackbird Recording Studio.
"'One More Time' was written as an ode to the invigorating sensation of connecting with a stranger on a night out and dancing any past worries into yesterday," Joe says.
"Sometimes a conversation, a dance or a kiss can be all you need to charge on with a newfound spring in your step."
Ahead of the song's release tomorrow (13 October), scenestr is stoked to premiere 'One More Time' today. Enjoy.
When it came time to record 'One More Time' inspiration came via an iconic name from the '70s and '80s, Rod Stewart. "On the way to the recording session, 'Do Ya Think I'm Sexy' by Rod Stewart played on the radio," Joe says.
"It's a song that we all love, and it inspired us to make the track what it is today."
It wasn't all fun and games though during the recording process. "While recording at Blackbird Studio with Dave Parkin, we took our daily power break and Jac got banned from the local bakery for flooding the the entrance," admits Joe.
Figurehead have also locked in a launch show for 'One More Time' and are looking to capitalise on the momentum they've built with a string of local sell-out gigs.
"We've actually been pretty busy with gigs throughout 2020-21, thanks to Western Australia's limited cases of community transmission and relaxed COVID restrictions," guitarist Josh says.
"It's been great to see crowd numbers grow at our gigs and we have been able to road-test an entire new set of songs and locked in the new five-piece line-up."Figurehead launch 'One More Time' at The Aardvark (Fremantle) 23 October.
