We’re going on tour in May! We are stoked to be hitting the road with old pals @youthgroupband. We’ll be playing Adelaide, Melbourne, Castlemaine, Sydney and Wollongong. We have never done a double headline before so that’s extra exciting. We are long-time fans of YG’s warm, heartfelt, intelligent songs and look forward to catching them perform tunes old and new.

In a press statement, AoF said they were “stoked to be hitting the road with old pals Youth Group this May. We have never done a double headline before so that’s extra exciting.

To accompany the tour announcement, AoF have shared a video for ‘Conjuror’, a cut off their latest studio album, ‘Luna Low’. The heartfelt visual is directed by Luke Mclean Stephenson and Hayley Miro Browne, who is the sister of Ollie and Miles Browne from AoF.
The clip stars Miles’ son and pays tribute to their late father Allan Browne, who was also the inspiration behind the song. “Ollie first showed me a rough demo for ‘Conjuror’ during a visit to Denmark in 2017. I felt a pang of desire to be a part of the song, somehow. So when I was asked to make this video, I was ecstatic,” Hayley said in a statement.
“My nephew Arty (Miles Browne’s son) was a perfect fit, Dad adored him. The song soars. The lyrics describe a glider up above, the metaphors both lyrically and visually are plentiful and personal and the rest is history.”
