Sydney-based skewed pop outfit Community Radio return with new album "Look Now You’re Cursed", the follow-up to their highly regarded 2012 debut "Serious Magic".
Community Radio are led by former Youth Group and Songs member Cameron Emerson-Elliott, and also feature Patrick Matthews (The Vines, Youth Group), Jen Kevin and Mal McKernan.
Early in 2014, as the band was preparing to commence work on the follow-up to their debut record (with cheap mics and ad-hoc gear they’d amassed through eBay), drummer Mal fell seriously ill. During a window of good health for Mal at the start of 2015, the band decided to abandon their plans to record themselves and to get the record done as rapidly as possible with the best help going. They headed into Alberts Studios in Neutral Bay with producer Wayne Connolly for four days of tracking, capturing Community Radio’s run down, buzzing gear and stripped back elemental pop in the highest fidelity.
With "Look Now You’re Cursed" the band have matured and developed, deepening their sound and sharpening their songwriting to a unique singular point. The album delivers eleven tracks of literate guitar pop that brim with melody and mood.
The album will be released on July 15th and will be available on CD via the band’s own imprint Novella Records and on LP through Tenorio Cotobade.
