NEW SINGLE // RAAVE TAPES - 2 U xoxo

Rob Carroll

Emerging from the beer-soaked and glitter-filled local house party scene, indie-punk rock trio and Newcastle’s favourite sons, RAAVE TAPES, have just revealed their new single ‘2 U xoxo’ and East Coast tour dates.

The unapologetic garage grit of ‘2 U xoxo’ is a raw and infectious party thrasher, taking cues from some of the groups staple influences, Death From Above 1979, Crystal Castles and The Mess Hall. The track is also an ode to the intricacies of modern dating and how annoying it is that good looking people don’t have to be able to dance.

Front man and guitarist, Joab Eastley, further describes the meaning behind ‘2 U xoxo’ –

“These damned pretty people just stand on the wall & people fall all over them. Get in the trenches & get your hands dirty like the rest of us plebs. Open a beer with a lighter. Consume a beverage at a faster than average speed. At least do the damned sprinkler for fuck's sake! WORK FOR IT!”

Since their inception in 2014, RAAVIES (as they’re affectionately known) have cemented themselves as local crowd favourites in the Newcastle music community. They’ve shared stages alongside Hockey Dad, The Gooch Palms, The Bennies and Skegss, sold-out headline dates across six-hundred capacity venues, and even curate their own mini-festival RAAVE TAPES Winter Wonderland’ at a local warehouse.

To celebrate the release of ‘2 U xoxo’ the band will set off on a ten-date tour across the East Coast and in Adelaide, which includes a slot on NSW Central Coast boutique festival ‘Mountain Sounds Festival’.

In the coming weeks, RAAVE TAPES, will unveil an accompanying music video for ‘2 U xoxo’.

‘2 U xoxo’ will be released via No-Fi Records on Friday February 17th, available worldwide via Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and all other good digital retailers.
