Melbourne indie-pop outfit Cool Sounds have announced plans to take new album ‘Bystander’ on the road, announcing an east coast album launch tour.
From there, the band will make stops in Brisbane and Sydney along with regional Victoria and New South Wales, wrapping up with a show at Frank’s Wild Years in Thirroul, Wollongong on May 30.
The album moves away from the introspective folk of their home-recorded EP ‘Sleepers’, released in July last year, back toward the lush jangle of their earlier material.
Last year, the band also released the one-off single ‘Vice’, a kitsch reimagining of The Doobie Brothers’ song ‘What A Fool Believes’.
Cool Sounds’ ‘Bystander’ 2021 tour dates are:
Sunday 28 — Melbourne, Brunswick Ballroom
Saturday 20 – Beechworth, Tanswells
Friday 26 – Brisbane, Felons Barrel Hall
Saturday 27 – Eltham, Eltham Hotel
Sunday 28 – Yamba, Bowlo
