Multiple longtime members of Melbourne’s underground music community have joined together under the name Power Supply, announcing plans to release their first album with the moniker.
‘In the Time of the Sabre-toothed Tiger’ is set to arrive on October 22, and will be released in Australia via Melbourne label Anti Fade. Pre-orders are available now.
To coincide with the announcement, the band have shared the album’s lead single, ‘Infinity’, anchored by bright, jangly guitars and singer Leon Stackpole’s buoyant vocal delivery. Listen to that below:
Each member of Power Supply has kept fairly busy independently over the last decade or so, with singer Stackpole releasing music mononymously as Leon.
Bassist Richard Stanley, meanwhile, has released music as part of Drug Sweat, and drummer Per Byström’s band Voice Imitator released their debut album ‘Plaza’ last year.
Prolific guitarist Mikey Young is a member of bands like Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring and more recently The Green Child. The latter, his duo with former Grass Widow vocalist/guitarist Raven Mahon, released their second album ‘Shimmering Basset’ last year.
Per a press release, the band began working together again after Stanley, Byström and Young were all recruited as the live band for Stackpole’s solo project, completing a Victorian tour together.
