Returning with a new single that is primed and ready for the warmer months ahead, Perth’s Great Gable unleash the melodic and evocative ‘I Swear’. Another solid snapshot of the band’s growth and dynamism over the last year, ‘I Swear’ comes jam-packed with honesty in delivery and genuine charm to match.
Served up with a laid-back attitude and on-record presence, Great Gable exude warmth and rich depth in their music. Much like Ocean Alley, Lime Cordiale and The Jungle Giants, the music of Great Gable is music to get lost in. Recorded at Perth’s Rada Studio with Matt Gio (Birds of Tokyo, Troye Sivan, San Cisco) and mastered by William Bowden (Gotye), the band shines when demonstrating subtleties and with ‘I Swear’, they open themselves up again and put emotion on the table. “‘I Swear’ is a short sweet song about remaining patient and positive for the people and things that we love in life.” Alex Whiteman, Great Gable
2019 has kept Great Gable busy on the live front; May had the band touring internationally for the first time on a completely sold out tour of New Zealand while in coming months, their touring schedule ramps up again as Great Gable chart not only their NZ return, but a headline Australian tour that has already seen them sell out Northcote Social Club and add new shows added for Melbourne and Fremantle.
The band have also aligned themselves with the new solar initiative FEAT. for this tour, donating $1 from every ticket to the organisation, which has been recently launched to invest in the creation of solar farms; a move by artists to help offset the carbon footprint in place as a result of touring. “We’re stoked to be involved with such an important cause as promoting safe and renewable energy for the future. Touring is the main way Great Gable promotes our art and earn a living, which means a lot of travelling and flights (especially for us Australian artists!). FEAT allows us to balance our carbon footprint by donating $1 of every ticket sold for a show towards the financing of new and existing solar farms around Australia”. Great Gable
The band are also CanTeen Side of Stage ambassadors, providing free tickets to their shows for young people who have been affected by cancer.
