To coincide with the release of his sophomore album 'Easy Dazy' out July 13 on Caroline Australia, Fraser A. Gorman has announced a national Australian tour kicking off in Adelaide on August 18 and finishing in Brisbane on September 28.
'Easy Dazy' - the follow up to Fraser's debut album 'Slow Gum' - was recorded at Head Gap with producer Nicolas Vernhes (War on Drugs, Silver Jews, Cat Power) and Melbourne musician Dan Luscombe (The Drones). The record also features guest musician friends including members of King Gizzard, Leah Senior, Anika Ostendorf (Hachiku) and Hollie Joyce.
Gorman's songwriting builds around his ability to convey his life, hopes, and fears openly with sun-drenched tones and lyrical wit. Sonically, the album has a warm and timeless feel. Taking a slight step away from the country folk vibes of his previous releases, 'Easy Dazy' is more laid-back Americana with a driving pop sensibility. Tasteful horn arrangements sprinkled on a few tracks evoke the vibe of contemporary blue-eyed soul and the lush background vocals evoke the sound somewhere between Transformer era Lou Reed and Bill Fay's 'Omega Day'.
