Towns release new single ‘l8tely’ + Supporting Trophy Eyes next month

Adelaide pop-punk, self-professed “two-piece puzzle”, TOWNS have shared their introspective new single ‘l8tely’ out now everywhere via Farmer & The Owl/BMG. 

Following on from recent single ‘Birthdays’ released in April, new single ‘l8tely’ takes inspiration from the iconic pop punk bands of the early 2000’s like Good Charlotte and Sum 41 that the guys had been spinning on repeat when working on the song. “‘l8tely’ is written about feeling like sh*t but being aware of it” TOWNS say. “It’s that introspective realisation of knowing you’re feeling a certain way and knowing how to fix it but not doing anything about it. Within reason, I think it’s healthy to wallow a little bit but not get too caught up in your own thoughts. We’ve been listening to heaps of Y2K pop-punk over the past year and it definitely reflects in this one.”

The new single follows on from TOWNS joining Australian punk legends Between You & Me on their national headline tour earlier this year in May playing to raucous, high energy crowds across the country. ‘l8tely’ also lands ahead of the duo jumping on tour with Trophy Eyes and Boston Manor playing as a special guest on their national headline tour coming up in August.

In 2018, TOWNS released their debut EP Television, which swept listeners off their feet from the first spin with its unique blend of 90s pop rock and Australiana.  Proving they love all things 90’s, the duo have even created a YouTube series TOWNS TV, hosting their own nostalgic TV show drawing inspiration from the ever-popular Cheez TV that captivated young Australian’s during the late 90’s. The duo has been named ‘Best Rock Group’ three years running for the South Australian Music Awards.

TOWNS continue to deliver their good-time vibes with their live shows. Over the past few years the pop punk duo have joined fellow Adelaideans Teenage Joans on a sold out co-headline tour, have hit the road for their own headline shows and supporting Ruby Fields, and played to packed out venues and bringing the high octane energy they are known for.  This is in addition to supports for Dune Rats, The Jungle GiantsWAAXBugsDear Seattle among many others. They have also been regulars on the festival circuit appearing on the bills of Yours & Owls Festival, Groovin The Moo, Falls Festival, NYE on the Hill and Spin Off Festival.

With no signs of slowing down 2024 is gearing up to be a huge year for the duo, with more new music and more electrifying live shows on the horizon (to be revealed soon…)
