Savage Garden: Australian pop duo Savage Garden have taken the world by storm without the record company hype and career-establishing game plan that is often the background for pop-oriented acts.
Daniel Jones comes from a long line of musicians. When he was ten, he was already playing the keyboard and drums in bars and hotels. Darren Hayes' show business experience extended no further than his involvement in many school plays. When Jones and the band he'd started with his brothers advertised for a singer, the inexperienced but enthusiastic Hayes was the only hopeful to answer. He wasn't what was needed for a covers band playing the Gold Coast resort area of Queensland, but Hayes inspired a different flame in Jones and the pair broke away to start writing original songs.
Train was formed in 1994 with the collective belief that if you write and perform great songs, people will listen. The band's self-titled debut album was produced by Train and Curtis Mathewson and mixed by Counting Crows guitarist David Bryson (with the exception of "If You Leave," which was produced and mixed by Matt Wallace). The album showcases the band's strong, honest songwriting, great musicianship and straightforward approach to music. Lead singer Patrick Monahan says, "The whole band is involved in the writing of the music. We inspire one another, in a very collaborative, mutual way."
TesseracT have released a lyric video for their track Messenger, taken from fourth album Polaris.
The record, announced last month, was recorded with vocalist Dan Tompkins, who returned after being replaced by Ashe O’Hara for previous outing Altered State.
The band say: “Polaris is a different scenario – the first chance for us as a group to stop and take stock of what we are right now, to explore a TesseracT of melody, dynamics, and singular focus. For the first time, too, we feel free from the bounds of genre-specific expectations."
The album arrives on September 18 via Kscope and it can be pre-ordered in physical and digital formats.
