Brisbane’s Flynn Effect are today rolling out their second single from their upcoming OBSIDIAN album tour. Obsidian is their second album and will be available for purchase on August 4. The album can be pre-ordered now at Bandcamp.
The bombastic heavy rock single premiered on Andrew Haug Radio Monday night and today the track is available online to purchase at iTunes and stream on Spotify.
The short but excellent tour, announced a few weeks ago, takes in Sydney’s The Factory Floor on Friday August 11 with Gods of Eden, Mercury Sky and Reign on Mars, Melbourne’s iconic The Workers Club Sunday August 13 with Caution:Thieves, Enlight and Terrestrials and hometown Brisbane on Friday August 18 at The Brightside with Mercury Sky, Seraphic and Periapsis.
Vocalist Tomina Vincent says of the track – “We want people to see and hear the light and shade in what we do with our music. ‘Give in to me’ is one of the most fun tracks on the record and somewhat of a departure from the usual for us. It was initially rejected but once we rediscovered it took an hour to finish and we were stoked to have a happy and catchy track to lift people up at the end of such an emotionally heavy record. ‘Obsidian’ is all about contrast and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Surfacing as a live band in 2014, Flynn Effect have established themselves within their scene as a force to be reckoned with – delivering music with a theatrical flair, dramatic poise and a sound that hits like a hurricane. The band’s debut album, ‘Skin’, was released in October of that year, with Heavy Magazine calling it “highly impressive”. New single ‘Fade’ takes the building blocks of that album and previous single ‘All for Love’ and goes deeper and broader on their sound.
