I OH YOU is thrilled to present ‘Television’ – the new single from acclaimed Melbourne four-piece City Calm Down, the track premiered last night on triple j’s Good Nights.
Recorded with producer Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, The Drones, Julia Jacklin), ‘Television’ is a prescient pop anthem for our times, and the band’s first new material since 2018’s masterful Echoes In Blue. That record debuted at #20 on ARIA Album Charts and #6 on iTunes, earning wide critical acclaim at home and abroad, with NME hailing the band’s “undeniable ambition”.
Now, that same spirit and drive finds City Calm Down hungrier than ever and determined to not repeat themselves on their upcoming third album, due out this year.
In celebration of their new single, City Calm Down will be performing two exclusive headine shows in May/June, and returning to the UK/Europe in Sept/Oct. Tickets are on sale now via www.citycalmdown.com.
‘Television’ is inspired by 1976’s Sidney Lumet-directed satire Network – an Oscar-winning howl of protest. Four decades on, Network’s bleak vision is more relevant than ever.
