TORA has unveiled a new video and new single ahead of their debut album Take A Rest which will be released June 9 on Indica Records. The band premiered the video for their blissfully upbeat single “Another Case” last week via We Are Sweet which features a riveting dance sequence choreographed and performed by Aisha Mary Kuryana, and directed by Coco and Maximilian. Says Tora, “Whether it’s at a show or via our social media, we’ve had a lot of people interact with our music in the form of dance so we decided to highlight this in the video. We collaborated with Melbourne-based creative team Coco & Max to portray a cool rendition of this.”
The band has also premiered haunting piano-driven single “Too Much” available here: http://radi.al/ToraTooMuch. With over 30 million streams on Spotify, the 4-piece from Byron Bay has already built a legion of fans with their electronic brand of ambient harmonies, layered instrumentation and pulsing soundscapes. Recently released single “Another Case” is already picking up steam with airplay on triple J in Australia, and across Europe, as well as special features on BBC and Beats 1. A pre order for the new LP is available HERE.
Inspired while touring Australia, Europe and North America, Tora wrote Take A Rest over a two year period in various locations around the globe. The band composed, recorded, produced and mixed the album in their home studios in Byron Bay, Australia. Tora took a novel approach to recording Take A Rest by incorporating organic sounds heard in guitarist Jai Piccone’s garden, including the buzzing of flies, bamboo creaking in the wind and the scraping of cactuses with rakes. Take A Rest was mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Andrei Eremin (Chet Faker, WAFIA, Hiatus Kaiyote).
