Art of Fighting, one of the most revered and acclaimed Australian bands of the 00s, have returned in 2019 with their first new music in twelve years. Following on from single ‘Genie‘, described by The Guardian as “a little luxury, a pattern breaker, an opportunity to breathe clean air again” – Art Of Fightingnow share beautiful new track ‘YourLove‘.
Premiered via Triple R Breakfasters and The Music – ‘Your Love’ arrives with a Geoffrey O’Connordirected video clip.
Ollie Browne shares his insights on the track – “Your Love is about that feeling when what your fear the most in the world is the inability to contain and rationalise your love for someone. How that makes all the other genuinely terrifying things in both the internal and external world seem completely insignificant.”
Video director Geoffrey O’Connor explains that the video is making up for lost time – “As a child I always covered my eyes when people kissed on TV, depriving myself of one of life’s only pleasures. This video is a way of making up for those wasted years. I also wanted to depict a world in which romance is still alive and well, and sending actors engaging in PDA to a parallel universe seemed like a wonderful way to do that.”
In April, Art of Fighting will play their first shows in over a decade in Sydney & Melbourne. Melbourne’s Howler show is sold out and Sydney’s Lansdowne is selling fast. Leo Mullins formerly of Small Knives, 2 Litre Dolby and The Welcome Mat will be supporting both tour dates. Full tour dates and ticket links below.
Art Of Fighting is Ollie Browne, Peggy Frew, Miles Browne and Marty Brown.
