New Music: Halcyon Drive ‘Books For The Holidays’

Following on from the release of their standout singles ‘Reset’ and ‘Untethered’, Melbourne-based indie alt-pop trio Halcyon Drive have announced national tour dates and unveiled their new track’Books For The Holidays’ – lifted from their forthcoming EP ‘Untethered’ (due 13 May 2016).

Recorded with producer Steve Schram (San Cisco, Eagle & The Worm) in a makeshift studio in the Otways National Park, Victoria, ‘Books For The Holidays’ is a gorgeous indie-rock ballad that takes cues from the likes of Foals and Bombay Bicycle Club.

Discussing the inspiration behind the track, vocalist Michael Oechsle said:

“The song is about being frustrated with the state of loneliness. Part longing over unrequited feelings, part despair, part wonderment at the beauty that surrounds us everyday- this is definitely the most heartfelt tune on the EP.”

After touring the country relentlessly over the last twelve-months, playing a slew of club shows and boutique festivals, Halcyon Drive are excited to set forth on their most extensive run to date performing cuts from their brand new EP at eleven shows spanning across NSW, QLD, VIC, ACT and SA.
