Melbourne post punk/krautrock/indie rock band Children Collide have unleashed their new single "Aurora".
The song is the first taste of the band's upcoming fourth studio album, set to arrive on early 2020 via Spinning Top Music.
Returning with a post-punk charge and the unmistakable trademarks of Children Collide, Aurora is a love letter to humanity’s grand illusions. “I kept listening back to the demo and remembering how much fun it was playing this kind of music,” says vocalist / guitarist Johnny Mackay of the track.
“It was originally written for our third album Monument, so it’s felt like unfinished business ever since and a big part of the reason we made another album. In the end if felt like it was burning a hole in my hard drive, so we had to put it out.”
“I never really stopped writing music that felt like it belonged to Children Collide. In 2014 Heath, Ryan and I jammed and did a couple of shows and remembered how much fun it was to play that stuff together. The idea of a fourth album was thrown around in those sessions, but we were all busy pursuing our own paths,” he adds.
