Blank Realm – Go Easy (single) – 7″
Hailing from Brisbane, Blank Realm consists of three siblings, Daniel, Luke and Sarah Spencer, and Luke Walsh. Renowned for their ecstatic live performances and boundary-pushing, yet listenable records, the group have released several sold out recordings on labels including Not Not Fun, Digitialis, Albert’s Basement and MusicYourMindWillLoveYou.
The band’s formidable live reputation has been earned over the course of over 200 live performances with acts such as the Kurt Vile, Wild Flag, Zola Jesus, Sun Araw, The Clean, Robert Forster, Wet Hair, Jandek, Grouper, Damo Suzuki and Royal Headache.
Their new album, Go Easy, is an incredible blend of psychedelic rock & roll and super-catchy pop smarts. Sometimes their sound approaches the post-punk desperation of Joy Division, other times it possesses the playful, superfuzzed psych of the Flaming Lips. More than anything, Go Easy has THE SONGS. It comes in late and without much warning, but it is absolutely worth it and has received a lot of attention from the indie music press, blogs, Triple J, community radio etc.
