World’s End Press
“You’ll hear that house piano made popular in the decade of yore, but it’ll mash up comfortably with early 80s disco and funk and thick beats that could easily find a home in the DFA stables… All four members grew up on a steady diet of Primal Scream, Happy Mondays and Underworld and you can hear it… This is straight up, feelgood dance music”
Zan Rowe, Triple J Mag.
Melbourne’s World’s End Press have spent the year working audiences into a fever pitch of anticipation for their debut album Music For The World, due in early 2011. With press fizzing over the band’s highly infectious cosmic disco singles, ‘Only The Brave’ and Triple J, community radio and Kiss FM chart favourites ‘Faithful’ and ‘Golden Child’, the band has played up and down the country and supported acts as diverse as Delphic (UK), Miami Horror, Temper Trap, Art Vs Science, Regurgitator and Pikelet, and will bring in the new year at Falls Festival and Southbound, before heading off around the country with Laneway Festival this February.
Onstage, John Parkinson (vocals / guitar), Rhys Richards (synthesizers / electronics), Sashi Dharann (bass) and Tom Gould (drums) are literally bouncing off the walls, the energy levels are off the scale – and audiences have responded in the only way they know how – dancing like it’s peak time at an underground rave in a forest off the M25 London ring road in 1988.
World’s End Press tantalise their fans with the release of the Fatihful EP, a taster of the forthcoming debut album. Recorded in Melbourne’s Electric Dreams studio with producer Qua (Cornel Wilczek),‘Faithful’ jacks up the disco-synth pop high all the way to euphoric, while the EP features the band’s live favourite, a knock-out cover of Pet Shop Boys’ ‘West End Girls’, an exclusive album taster with the long groove of ‘Long Live All of the Nights to Come’ and the killer house piano-breakdown Gloves remix of ‘Faithful’.
Adding political and social insights to their massive tunes, World’s End Press hark back to the days when pop music really meant something.
