MORNING HARVEY ANNOUNCED AS THE DANDY WARHOLS NATIONAL TOUR SUPPORT

Banding together some of Brisbane’s finest musicians, Morning Harvey is the hook-laden, sunshine-drenched pop brainchild of lead singer and songwriter Spencer White
 
“Seriously though. You need to be on this now. Out of Brisbane, Australia”
 
These are the words of John Richards at KEXP Seattle/Washington, one of the most influential tastemaker college radio stations in the US on the release of Morning Harvey’s debut EP “love&loveand”. Single ‘Smith Street Swap Meet’ went on to receive KEXPs much coveted “Song Of The Day” and the EP remained in the CMJ Radio 200 Chart for three weeks.

 

Now running full steam ahead with their newly released single ‘Susanne Monday’, the band is proving a favourite at Triple J with six rave track reviews for the single, a Feature Artist of The Week on Unearthed, as well as a full-rotation add.
 
“Such a solid tune, it’s been stuck in my head since my first spin – 4.5 Stars”, Nick Findlay on ‘Susanne Monday’
 
“Love this. It’s got a stack of personality. Great indie rock with a decent dose of bravado – 4 Stars”, Richard Kingsmill on ‘Susanne Monday’
 
Proving a “tour de force” on the live circuit with countless performances alongside the likes of Royal Blood, The Charlatans, Hoodoo Gurus, and Steve Malkmus of Pavement, two BIGSOUND showcases, three headline tours, and a cracker performance at Groovin’ The Moo Townsville, Morning Harvey are said to boast one of the country’s best live shows:
 
“Overseen by the soulful strains and reliably entertaining, downright sultry, gyration-heavy dances of insanely charismatic frontman Spencer White… The bar has been set high” (The Music at BIGSOUND 2015).
 
Despite the band’s indisputable swagger (“like Mick Jagger playing Wembley Stadium kind of swagger” – Dom Alessio), Morning Harvey yet remains one of Australia’s best-kept secrets, but not for long as they take on a nationwide tour supporting The Dandy Warhols this October and November.

THE DANDY WARHOLS: DISTORTLAND TOUR AUSTRALIA

Regarded as one of the best live bands around, The Dandy Warhols or the Dandys as they are affectionately known, have earned their reputation by delivering performances which garner reviews such as – ’handclaps, sing-alongs and bouncing galore as the Dandys energised the room and made people forget they had to work the next day  Fasterlouder

the-dandy-warhols-01.jpegIn 1994 a groovy little band outta Portland, Oregon burst into life  they were called THE DANDY WARHOLS. There were a group of friends who needed music to drink to. For the last two decades, THE DANDY WARHOLS have solidified themselves as a veteran rock act that combine a detached garage rock cool with effervescent pop melodies, creating a sound that has been described as Portland’s answer to Brit-Pop.

“one of the best shows of the year, or at least one of the most freakin’ e-p-i-c” – The Dwarf

THE DANDY WARHOLS return to Australia thanks to www.metropolistouring.com & www.selecttouring.com.au in support of their latest album, DistortlandDistortland was first recorded in frontman, Courtney Taylors basement on an 80s cassette recorder with the band putting on the finishing touches in a studio. Jim Lowe – best known for his work with Taylor Swift and Beyonce – mixed the album.  Courtney notes that the end result is an album that is organized like a pop record but still has the sonic garbage still in there. This will be Australias first chance to hear new material live and in living colour. Speaking to Mixdown Magazine, frontman Courtney Taylor spoke about the upcoming Australian tour, We love Australia! Its part of our family, its part of our body.”

“cool-as-fuck” – Vanyaland

With an impressive back catalogue of iconic hits, The Dandy’s set list is sure to not only include Distortland future classics, but also be jam packed with pure pop crowd favourites, including We Used To Be Friends, Horse Pills, Get Off, Godless, Everyday Should Be A Holiday, Boys Better and of course the evergreen crowd pleaser Bohemian Like You.

Well leave the final words to NME  The Dandy Warhols are a lifestyle, not a performance; an intoxicating and unpredictable band
