Following on from working tirelessly in 2015 traversing the country and performing at prestigious international showcases CMJ and Canadian Music Week, Sunshine Coast-based indie-rock group Selahphonic have just unveiled their new anthemic-pop single ‘Ghosts Of 1999’ and East Coast tour dates.
The feel-good power-pop vibes of ‘Ghosts Of 1999’ are likened to that of The Wombats, Walk The Moon and St. Lucia, and driven by an infectious lead guitar hook whilst melding a wall of synth and backed by an enormous rhythm section. The new cut continues on with sheer exuberance throughout the whole piece and is further complimented by charismatic front man Jamie Coyle’s uplifting and energetic vocals.
Aside from extensive touring throughout 2015 in the US and Australia, Selahphonic received praise and support from local tastemakers triple j Unearthed, The Music, Semplesize, Acid Stag and also managed to take out Channel [V]’s DISCO[V]ER competition in March.
In line with promoting the new single, the band have announced five East Coast dates in Brisbane, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, Melbourne and a spot on Sea N’ Sound Fest in Moolooaba, QLD.
In the coming weeks the quartet will also be revealing an accompanying music video.
