Retiree release ‘Mystery Bay’ live video ahead of upcoming UK Tour

by the partae
Retiree release their live video of  ‘Mystery Bay’, filmed at their album launch at Northcote Social Club by  Yannick Jamey.  Their live rework of the 'House Or Home' track features a driving club beat and a new emphasis on the bass lines, giving the originally understated track a new lease of life. Speaking on the new version Retiree said: “Mystery Bay appeared on House or Home as a 6 minute slow burner with a tease of bass and drums in the back half. This is how we felt it worked best in an album context, but we always had a plan to create a more expansive version  to play live, and this is it!” The lyrics are about an Australian Indigenous seaside community who, after thousands of years of living sustainably off the land, were banned from fishing due to commercial fishing decimating local sea life.  The area was classed a marine park and all fishing banned by the government which led to the indigenous people being prosecuted for doing so.  A few kilometres inland there is a heritage town preserved by the National Trust where you can visit a vintage petrol station and buy some gold rush era lollies. Through the lens of a disgruntled campground manager, the song explores the juxtaposition between these two towns. Retiree will be performing this version of ‘Mystery Bay’ live at their upcoming debut UK tour in April/May 2019. The Australian trio will be touring off the back of their critically acclaimed 2018 Album ‘House or Home’, the tour includes show’s in key UK cities as well as a slot at All Points East in London and The Great Escape in Brighton.
