SUPPORT FOR PREVIOUS SINGLE ‘RADAR’
Premiered on triple j’s Roots n’ All program
“Radar is a funky slice of indie rock’n’roll that ebbs and flows across a spectrum of genres”.
“Unconventional and saucy, Papaya Tree brings a truly spectacular new rock sound”.
Ear To The Ground Music (USA)
#42 on Spotify’s Australian Viral 50
After releasing their critically praised single ‘Radar’, Sydney-based indie sextet Papaya Tree have just unveiled tour dates and their striking new cut ‘Youth’ – recorded and produced by Phan Sjarif (Middle Kids) at Parliament Studios, Annandale.
Papaya Tree yet again produce a splattered canvas of colourful horns, crooning vocals and pure indie-rock sweetness; guaranteed to pull at those heart strings. ‘Youth’ builds to a frenetic crescendo, vividly unmasking the hidden angst of lead singer, Lee McDermott, who explains the meaning behind the track “Youth addresses the age-old wives tale; the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”.
Off the back of supporting Sex On Toast on their Australian East Coast Tour and a sold out Lansdowne Hotel show earlier in the year, the band will be performing launch parties in both Sydney and Melbourne.
Since Papaya Tree’s conception two years ago they have toured Australia extensively, playing boutique festivals Psyfari and Wollombi.
Their previous tracks have been supported by the likes of triple j, MTV and tastemaker blogs Ear To The Ground Music (USA), Savage Thrills, Life Without Andy and Pilerats.
In the coming weeks Papaya Tree will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Youth’.
‘Youth’ will be available worldwide on Wednesday October 17
