WE ALL WANT TO
‘ON THE DOTS’ | ALBUM
OUT FRIDAY MARCH 1ST
Four years on from critically-acclaimed album The Haze, alt-rockers We All Want To todayrelease fourth album On The Dots.
It’s a significant change of pace and sound for the much-loved outfit with two new band members – bass player Scott Mercer and guitarist Arron Bool – playing a significant role in defining the more stripped back sound. After years of blood, sweat and tears rebuilding, revising, re-arranging the music, mixing duties were then shared between Magoo, Bryce Moorhead and Keelan Sanders securing this album a true body of art.
The songs have arrived, quite literally from opposite ends of the earth. Tim Steward writing from England during his Grant McLennan Fellowship Trip had said of the experience “It really made sense to me why English songs sounds like they do, a lot of minor keys and subtle elements … I ended up writing a lot about the boredom, monotony and small-stuff of everyday life…Also, memories again, and that “rose-coloured glasses” thing which is a part of everyone“.
Skye Staniford, collected observations from the south coast of NSW, “My songs came through in a time of loss and isolation. Think of a wine – stained notepad in a muddy cold caravan in the middle of nowhere. Those songs were gradually realised, fleshed out and honoured by my band mates, who kept working on them even when I wanted to let them go.” A personal set of songs alongside melodies intertwined over subtle yet solid rhythms prove big things can be expected from this album.
Feature track ‘Come Home, Be Mine’ shows the band effortlessly blend ambient melodies and infectious guitar riffs to create a truly alluring tune. Lead singers Tim Steward and Skye Staniford have perfected their vocal harmonies, allowing their emotive narrative-style lyrics to resonate with listeners.
With a track record of National radio support by Double J and community radio, universal acclaim from the world’s top music critics and past albums making the AMP long list & finalist for Queensland Album of the year, this is a body of work that can’t be missed. In support of this album release, We All Want To are planning a national Australian tour with dates to be announced soon. This band has ten years experience up their sleeve, to guarantee a good time.
‘ON THE DOTS’ IS OUT EVERYWHERE DIGITALLY NOW!
