The Goon Sax Share New Single Make Time 4 Love + Announce Tour Dates
"Make Time 4 Love" is the thrilling new single from Australian teen trio The Goon Sax, which is taken from their forthcoming album We're Not Talking, due out on Wichita on 14 September. Having toured Europe with Frankie Cosmos and played a sold-out show at London's Sebright Arms in May, they return to the UK in September and October, with shows in Glasgow, Leeds and Birmingham plus a London show at The Garage on 16 October. The band will then head out on a headline tour in the US.
Gloriously catchy with a triumphantly satisfying hook, "Make Time 4 Love" encapsulates their brand of awkwardly transcendent guitar pop. It is taken to another level with a flourish of horns and strings, not to mention the inspired addition of a cowbell as a lead instrument. The video for the track, directed by Ryan Daniel Browne was premiered via NPR, who wrote: "Fans of early Talking Heads albums, listen up. This group of teenagers from Brisbane could be your favorite new band."
Louis Forster from the band said of the video; "James was bitten by the dog, luckily not rabid! Aside from that we had a lot of fun shooting, ended up just fitting it in at the end of our America tour back in June. Seeing all that desert around L.A was pretty amazing. We just wanted time to go there so we wrote to Ryan, who made the video, a couple of days before shooting and he drove us out and took some shots. The song was playing from the car but it was so windy we couldn't really hear it even at full volume."
