Purple Sneakers, Triple RRR & Video Shoot Pics…

June 27, 2010 § Leave a comment

Ello Ello Ello,

So in some more rather exciting news surrounding our July national tour, we’ve been asked to Dj at Sydney’s favourite indie club, Purple Sneakers, as they help launch our debut E.p. ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’…

“Purple Sneakers is like a big house party in your own lounge room – sweaty, packed dance floors, random pushing, sticky carpets and non-stop dance-riot action all night long.”

Taking place on July 9th at the Gladstone Hotel, Sydney, this is gonna be one hell of a way to kick off our inaugural tour of this great country and a kick ass way for us to celebrate the E.p. hitting stores! We’ll be playing a heap of our favourite tunes and showing off a bunch of our influences so you can be sure, it will make one hell of an eclectic night of music.

There will also be a bunch of giveaways of the E.p. and very cheap drinks so if your in the area, make sure you come down and come celebrate with us!

Also be sure to tune into Melbourne radio station, Triple RRR, as they’ve added our debut single ‘Soul Digger’ to their playlist. Remember too, the more you request, the more it will get played so help us bring ‘Soul Digger’ to the masses and start requesting…

Finally, speaking of ‘Soul Digger’, we’ve uploaded a few shots from behind the scenes of our first ever video shoot for said single at

Hope to see you at a show sometime soon…

‘Soul Digger’ Music Video…

May 31, 2010 § Leave a comment

Hello all,

So just thought that we’d give you a quick insight into one of our more recent endeavours in what is now becoming, the remarkably busy world of ‘Alba Varden’…

In the very near future, we will be hitting the skies once again and will be travelling to the very fine city of Sydney to begin production on our debut music video for our debut single off of our debut e.p. Thats 3 firsts for those of you playing at home! For those of you who haven’t been paying enough attention, the single in question is in-fact, ‘Soul Digger’ and we cant wait to get it all underway.

We will be working alongside esteemed Australian music video producer and Director Of Photography, ‘Adam Howden’. Adam has produced and shot over 35 music videos for artists as varied as You Am I, Children Collide, Kram, Kisschasy and many more.

Directing duties will be handled by up and comer, one ‘Alex Ryan’. Alex has directed some striking and unique short films and will be taking this opportunity to foray into the world of music videos, where I’m sure he’ll feel right at home.

Now we wouldn’t want to give too much away but expect a video that will be, as always, a little left of centre and something that will definitely have a lot more to it than first perceived.

Look forward to keeping you all up to date and showing you the finished product!

Peace

New Remixes…

March 10, 2010 § Leave a comment

Hey all,

So we’ve been quite lazy as of late while other people continue to do amazing work with our music!…

We have 2 brand new remixes for ‘Soul Digger’, the first single off of our debut E.P, ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’…

Up first is a banging club mix by none other than acclaimed Australian producer  M. Phazes.  Renowned for his ability to craft the perfect beat, this certainly does not disappoint. Absolutely had no idea what to expect but the finished product is nothing short of amazing!

2nd on the line  is a cruisy and uplifting mix from the wonderful Dj Jean Pierre of  Boy+Girl fame. Its a smooth french, chic, housey mix that takes you on a ride throughout its many swirls and layers. An unmistakably flawless finished product and  we wouldn’t expect anything else from such an accomplished musician.

You shall all get to wrap your ears around these killer mixes in due time but if you cant wait, come to the ‘Soul Digger’ launch on the 20th and you just may get a cheeky sneak peak…

Special thanks to M Phazes and Jean Pierre for putting in their time and effort and for their amazing work!

Take care and until next time…
