Brisbane prog-rock band, Patient Lounge's new single is titled 'Places'.
Brisbane prog-rock band Patient Lounge recently released their third single of 2020,'Places', which the band says is their most accessible song yet.
The first track the band wrote together, fan favourite 'Places' was inspired by Dr. Seuss book 'Oh, The Places You'll Go', a gift given to Nick and Zach by their music teacher upon graduating Grade 12.
"'Places' is a really special song for us, because it's the first song Eric and Zach wrote together," the band says.
"The song ended up sounding really hopeful and happy, so while we do play around with a few funny time signatures and grooves, the guts of the song is pretty accessible."
'Places' was engineered by Bernie Wedrat (Chris Lord-Alge, Tom Lord-Alge, Michael Brauer) at Lush Recording Studios (The 1975, Katy Perry) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Green Day, Mastodon).
The band have produced an accompanying music video for 'Places', which was filmed at the Brisbane Powerhouse and directed by Adrian Goleby (Caligula's Horse, Glass Ocean, Voyager).
scenestr is stoked to premiere the 'Places' music video today, which was also inspired (art style and editing) by Dr. Seuss's 'Oh, The Places You'll Go' as well as a-ha's classic video 'Take On Me'. Enjoy.
"The film clip was probably the most fun six guys can have with their clothes on," the band says. "We got the whole thing shot in one day, which was tight given the different locations, but man what a blast.
"The strangest part was playing the song over and over again in the pretty public (and totally beautiful) space outside the Brisbane Powerhouse.
"There ended up being quite a few shots that weren't usable because of some excitable kids who were enjoying the play-throughs a bit too much and getting in frame. But no complaints here, it felt great that people were enjoying hearing us and definitely gave our performances that bit more juice.
"'Places' is one of our favourite songs to play live," the band adds.
"It's a really nice moment in what can otherwise be a pretty frenetic, energetic set, to take the foot off the gas just a touch and really connect with the audience and the lyrics of the track."
