Playing Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in-stores
PRAISE FOR GETTING THE TEAM BACK TOGETHER
“It’s no wonder so many people want to join his team” – The Courier Mail
“It’s Neale’s idiosyncratic style that shines through, everything liberally slathered in pop hooks, gang harmonies and earworm melodies.” – The Music ★★★★
“The knockabout charisma of Jeremy Neale informs every nook of this impressively self-assured solo debut, his tilt at the title of Australia’s foremost wonky indie pop impresario backed by an album brimming with power pop and hooks.” – Rolling Stone ★★★★
“Jeremy Neale is here to make a name for himself.. a collection of fun, infectious tracks that cement his knack for melody.” – STACK
“Taking slick classic sounds from the 1960s to the 1980s and putting his particular retro-modern take.” – Sydney Morning Herald
Jeremy Neale’s highly anticipated debut album Getting The Team Back Together is out today via Dot Dash / Remote Control.
Catch him play free in-store performances tonight in Brisbane at Jet Black Cat, Sunday 5 November in Melbourne at Oh! Jean Records on and Thursday 9 November on Sydney at Red Eye Records. Full details are below.
Recorded at Brisbane’s storied studio The Plutonium, with producer Miro Mackie and a who’s who of Brisbane’s leading musicians including Charles Sale and George Browning (Babaganouj), Harriette Pilbeam (Hatchie), Liam Campbell (The Good Sports), Scott Bromiley and Luke McDonald (The John Steel Singers), and Jaimee Fryer (Pool Shop, Major Leagues), Getting The Team Back Together is the most comprehensive representation of Jeremy’s style to date.
The album is a collection of tracks assembled during a period of self-analysis – a record of unassailable power pop that documents growth, love and the eternal pursuit of happiness. Getting The Team Back Together touches on all manner of concepts surrounding identity and self-care. Whether it’s building confidence in social situations without the aid of alcohol in ‘Small Talk’, putting the needs of others above your own in ‘Video’, or facing up to the fact that one’s battle with mental illness could be a lifelong struggle in ‘All My Life’, Jeremy has stripped himself down to his most vulnerable state.
Each track by itself is exemplary, but as a whole each song supports the other. Like friends. Like a team. Getting one’s team together could refer to working on the self to build a contented whole, or it could mean seeking friends that will have your back through thick and thin. Regardless of your situation, Jeremy’s got your back and when you need him – he’s on your team and believes in you.
