Wollongong band TOTTY is touring their Garden EP this April 2021 with the ‘Better Late Than Never Tour’.
Touring the East Coast of Australia, the band will hit Wollongong, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney next month featuring the band’s new bass player Josh Fogarty (Ok Hotel). See dates and details below.
After spending the last 3 years touring Australia and sharing stages with some of Australia’s biggest contemporary rock acts Dune Rats, Skegss and Hockey Dad, TOTTY released their second EP Garden last November via Ratbag records/BMG Australia.
The band took their time to write and record a collection of honest and emotional alternative rock songs that represent their growth and development as a band. Lead singer and guitarist Kelly Jansch shares, “This EP is a reflection of growth in our individual selves, and in the band as a whole. Even though these songs were written almost two years ago now, they still do hold so much relevance to our lives today. Having my brother Brett (Dune Rats) producing and Jack Nigro engineering, gave us the opportunity to really translate the live sound of the band into the recordings. A lot has changed since we wrote our EP but we are proud of where the songs came from, and where we are now. Learning to embrace all the different parts of growing and changing.”
Recorded between the legendary ‘The Grove Studios’ on the NSW Central Coast and The Brain Studios in the heart of Sydney’s Inner West, the EP was produced by Brett Jansch (Dune Rats) and engineered by Jack Nigro (Skegss, DMAs). Both studios feature vintage large format recording consoles and large live rooms adding that ‘in the room’ feel to their tracks, accurately representing how the band sounds live and loud. The EP features performances from members of TOTTY at the time, Kelly Jansch (Vocals, lead guitar), Max Pirrodi (Bass), Chris Peruch (Drums).
