Brisbane six-piece First Beige are backwith glittering new single, ‘Details‘ premiering with Belgian tastemakers HighClouds and receiving a first spin from FBi Radio this week. The track arrives alongside the announcement of the band’s single launch in Brisbane in May.
Written, recorded and mixed entirely by David Versace, ‘Details’ displays the collective’s masterful ability to combine intricate soul, jazz and disco-inspired textures with delicate funk grooves resulting in something distinctly memorable. Employing a lyrical trick reminiscent of Hall & Oats’ ‘I Can’t Go For That’, the track enlists the honeyed vocals of Pink Matter’s Kerry Raywood as well as shimmering strings courtesy of David Versace’s mother.
‘Details’ is about “the importance of one’s perspective on their life”,David Versace explains. “Sometimes it can be easy to get caught up in thinking about your lifetime as a whole rather than a path. It’s about accepting that everyone’s going to have a different way they want to live their life so do what want to do and stand tall”.
First Beige is made up of David Versace (vocals, synthesizer), Troy Doolan (guitar, flute, congas, backing vocals), Jasper Gundersen (drums), Cain Robertson (guitar), Oscar Borschmann(synthesizer) and newest member Julia Beiers (bass). Having quickly gained a reputation as a formidable, dynamic live band, the band have recently supported the likes of Harvey Sutherlandand Sweater Curse and will perform a string of east coast live dates including a support show for Melbourne’s Mildlife as well as their hometown single launch at The Brightside in May.
With more music on the way this year, First Beige are set to lead an exciting new sonic charge with their future-facing soulful groove.
‘Details’ is out everywhere NOW.
