Luude Drops New Tour Dates & New Single “Hurricane ” Feat. Great News

Perth  producer  LUUDE​ is  continuing  to  blaze  his  own  sonic  trail,  unveiling  a  daring  new  single  in ‘Hurricane​’,​ featuring Norwegian daze-pop act GreatNews.​

The Soundcloud breakout (real name ChristianBenson) ​smashes the alien worlds of electro and psych rock together in his hypnotic new bop, channelling the kind of stacked 60’s-inspired vocals and woozy vintage synth tones you’ve come expect from acts like TameImpala or TheFlaming Lips,​and twisting them with his trademark percussive flair.

Speaking about the creation of the experimental new track, LUUDE says he wanted to write something that “mighthopefully stand the test of time”:

“I’ve been listening to lots of bands like Battles, Tame Impala, Holy Fuck and The Flaming Lips and I really wanted to find a way to bring those influences into something that made sense for LUUDE, The guys from Great News brought the perfect vocal vibe to get out the feeling I wanted in the track and it all came together really well. It had to be organic sounding, but still knock hard enough that I could play it in my shows”.

LUUDE will celebrate the arrival of ‘Hurricane’ with a handful of live dates across Australia​ this March, April and  May​,​ kicking  off  at  Adelaide’s Electric Circus then  hitting Perth​,​ Canberra​,​ Wollongong​,​ Brisbane,​ Newcastle​​and Sydney​​before heading to the US for two months of touring.

It comes after LUUDE kicked off the year with a performance at Sydney’s iconic FieldDay festival, after selling out huge venues across Australia on his 2018 TheDark Room tour and playing an impressive collective of club dates across the globe.

‘Hurricane’ is the first in a string of new releases to arrive from LUUDE’s cache of fresh sonic gems, in a year that will also see him continue to tour extensively.
