Australian sensation, TORA have unveiled their new single, “Amsterdam” from their upcoming debut album to be released mid-year on Indica Records. Listen + share the track HERE. The 5-piece band from Byron Bay has already built a legion of fans with their brand of ambient harmonies, layered instrumentation and pulsing soundscapes. The hauntingly beautiful new single “Amsterdam” was self-produced by the band before being mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Andrei Eremin. “Amsterdam” continues on from previous singles “Poly Amor” and ‘Twice (Little Dragon cover)”, which alongside EP’s Eat the Sun and self-titled Tora, have amassed an incredible 20 million online streams.
Since releasing their self-titled debut EP in 2013, Tora’s soulful electronic music has had them compared to seminal artists such as Radiohead and James Blake. Tora (Greek meaning ‘now’) have kept up a continual progression since their inception, dropping an array of singles and collaborations, which have enjoyed high rotation on Australia’s triple j. In a country that boasts an ever growing and internationally acclaimed electronic music scene, the boys from Byron Bay have earned their place as one of Australia’s most promising young acts, winning the triple j ‘unearthed spot’ in 2014 to perform at legendary festival, Splendour in the Grass, and attracting the attention of LA- based producer Galimatias who’s remix/collaboration on Tora track “Jaigantic” has since clocked up over 10 million streams online.
2016 saw the band playing slots at major festivals including Glastonbury and Falls Festival, as well as supporting ARIA and Platinum-award winning RÜFÜS on their Full Bloom tour. Boasting an extensive touring CV, Tora have also performed at The Great Escape (UK), Best Kept Secret (NL), and Germany’s premier festivals, Fusion Festival, and Reeperbahn as well as over 70 other festivals and headline shows across Europe, the US, Mexico and Canada. More information and tour dates will be announced when available.
