Bio

Archers are five musicians from Adelaide, SA that marry psychedelic post-rock with aggressive overtones of post-punk. The robust energy and ghostly contrast of their music have made striking impressions with selections for Big Day Out, Spin Off Festival and Rip It Up's Hot Six (2013), as well as supporting fellow Australian artists Alpine, DZ Deathrays, Snakadaktal, Glass Towers and The Morning After Girls. Their debut release 'What Birds Think' – featuring singles 'Seven Skies' and 'Old Parades' – stirred audiences on the What Birds Think EP Tour with songs that bloomed floating melodies, telltale rhythms and a slow-burning nostalgia of all that should have never been left behind. Now the dawn of their sophomore follow up offers the new single, ‘Nobodies’. ‘Stretches to the sky, moves at his complacent pace / Folds up into the crowd, the man without a face’ Submerging into darker grooves and psychedelic textures, the guitars (Brian Bolado, Simon Hatch) and rhythm section (Daniel Appleby, Sam Kolesnik) swim fluidly amongst the soft musings of vocalist Hugh Black to culminate in a transcendent finale. ‘Nobodies’ will be available for release in September 2013, along with the third Archers/Capital Waste Pictures film-clip collaboration. ------------------------------------------------------------ Download Archers' debut EP 'What Birds Think' at: http://archersadelaide.bandcamp.com/album/what-birds-think Film clip for 'Seven Skies' produced by Capital Waste Pictures: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NVaB8O3xLQ Flim clip for 'Old Parades' produced by Capital Waste Pictures: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkT-5waQIFU Facebook: https://facebook.com/archersmusic Twitter: https://twitter.com/archersadelaide Bandcamp: http://archersadelaide.bandcamp.com Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/archersmusic Triple J Unearthed: http://triplejunearthed.com/Archers Instagram: @archerssaynamaste

There's a lot of sweet guitar work in this song. The vocals mightn't be for everyone but after a few listens I'm vibing on this one.

Ohh, now this is...

Ohh, now this is nice. Those guitar harmonics sit nicely above the fuzz, I like the slight wail to the vocals, and then that pace at the end sets it all off!

As soon as I hea...

As soon as I heard the muted tinkling on the guitar, I was won over. Fortunately they didn't blow it after that either.
