Tasmanian indie-shoegazers, Lyke Giants are once again expanding their body of work to follow their debut album. Brothers Callaghn and Luke Thomson, and close friend James Brewer are set to release their brand new track Let Up this August 2014. The Aussie trio is currently putting the finishing touches on a group of new tracks, of which Let Up is the first taste. Let Up manages to be punchy and gritty but still maintains a sense of space and smooth movement into a polished package with seamless transitions. All of this provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the earnest and commanding vocals of James. Let Up serves to portray someone in a hopeless situation, who is encouraged to stop what is happening and change the outcome for the better. “Let Up happened very naturally for us, with the parts coming together fairly quickly. We feel it’s a great transition into our next body of work.” – Lyke Giants.
Much of the band’s existing success has arrived from overseas, charting in college radio and being featured on many blogs worldwide. However home success hasn’t been shortcoming, with the trio performing at The Falls Festival and supporting bands such as British India and Faker.
Throughout the production process of Let Up, Lyke Giants had producer Paul Mckercher (Eskimo Joe, Pete Murray, Bertie Blackman, You am I) behind them. Recorded in Tasmania, and mixed and mastered in the US, Let Up is set for global release 4th August 2014.
