EXCLUSIVELY PREMIERED ON RHYTHMS
OUT ON JUNE 8
On a journey that began in a solar powered shack in Nowhere NSW with a soundtrack of old bluesmen, Jack Tully has made pit stops in strange places. What remains after the rest has fallen away is a map that visits sprawling and rollicking rock n roll and experimental, ethereal sounds from somewhere else altogether.
2018 has seen Jack Tully and The Seers in the studio recording a soon to be released album. Spending the last two years playing and writing as a band, the songs have a collaborative feel to them and were recorded live in one room with producer Jordan Power (Angus Stone/ Kasey Chambers) at Inky Studios (Byron Bay). The first sneak peak of the album comes with first single “The Great Tragedy”.
“The Great Tragedy came to us in parts, over the last 5 years or so. My partner and collaborator, Deborah Marie, wrote the lyrics for the beginning verses the first night I found myself drinking wine on her lounge room floor. I thought they were great but we didn’t do anything with them. More lyrics came the next year, and some more after that. One morning we got talking about the tragedy of always wanting what we don’t have and moving the goal posts when we do have it; a perpetual cycle of longing. How can we find redemption from that, you know?”
“incredible musicianship that helps you feel pretty darn great” (Surfing World Magazine).
“You can trace the roots of the music, Texan troubadours like Townes Van Zandt, and Neil Young but there is something distinctive about Tully’s style too.” – Noel Mengel, The Courier Mail.
The new single follows on from Tully’s debut album, The Keeping (2015), a poetic reflection of a troubled past with a humble realisation of a brighter future. The album was warmly received, with the debut single, Prairie Lawn premiering on Triple J Roots N All. Listen to the latest offering “The Greater Tragedy” exclusively here on Rhythms.
