You may recall last month we told you about a fab new collaboration between The Vines frontman Craig Nicholls , Pnau and Empire Of The Sun’s Nick Littlemore and Nick’s producer brother Sam (aka Sam La More) called White Shadows.
Triple J scored the exclusive premiere of lead single ‘Give Up Give Out Give In’ back then and it’s since been piquing the interest of local fans.
“I thought it would be so cool to make an electronic record with someone with such a wild, colourful voice,” Nick says of the project. “We got in touch and it turned out Craig had this collection of songs he’d written. The music was very strong, very simplistic. So we talked about it a fair bit – what he wanted to do with it and where it could go.”
Now comes the announcement that it’s not just a single track proposition, with an album – ‘Secret Of Life – confirmed to drop in just a few weeks time.
Like the single, it’s an addictive blending of Craig’s husky rock-leaning vocals with Nick and Sam’s oh-so-smooth electronic production. From what we’ve heard of the LP, it’s a smash just waiting to be discovered.
‘Secret of Life’ will be released on Friday April 10.
