Imbibe’s debut single ‘Mirage’ is the year’s best existential jam

Australia’s coastal town Byron Bay is doing well for itself at the moment. Garage-rockers Skegss released their mighty debut album earlier this year, while Parcels’ ready theirs for next month. Now, we’ve got a taste of the next brilliant band from the region in the shape of Imbibe.

Today, the band share their debut single ‘Mirage’ exclusively via NME – a thumping slice of electro-pop that channels Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Grizzly Bear. “It’s really about the different mirages all humans have – the things we keep striving for that represent our deep longings and hopes. The never-ending search for meaning,” brothers Tennyson and Holden Nobel say to NME.

They’ll also be heading out on the road with Parcels in the UK in November – check out the dates below.
