Bio

Bronte Public Housing take their chilled psych pop in a new direction and present ‘High Tide’. A self produced hip hop meets rock ballad featuring outrageous vocals, chopped drums and a bouncy groove. Written in April the song is a reflection on the strange times we are living through. It was an acoustic number until BPH bass lord Sammy Von Barron came along and laid down the funk.

Recorded in the height of the COVID lockdown, the sessions had a definitive lack of timeframes, deadlines and boundaries. Bronte Public Housing tapped into creative freedom that is evident in the less than subtle nods to greats such as Prince and Queen throughout Jimmy’s unhinged vocal.

Further referencing acts such as The Panics and Pink Floyd, High Tide looks at a more simple form of songwriting that aimed to be a pick-me-up in those strange quarantine times, reminding the listener ‘the tide turns’.

Bronte Public Housing are an independent Australian band. Growing up on the Australian coastline, BPH was influenced by its mellow lifestyle and indie musical culture. High Tide was produced in Sydney by Bronte Public Housing at the same studio as notable acts like Genesis Owusu and World Champion. High Tide is the first single to come from the band since the release of their debut EP in 2020 which was described as "a cool blend of indie rock and psych-pop, the perfect amalgam of all things summery, sweet and splendid." - TONE DEAF (AUS).

Wasn't expecting the vibe to get so suddenly thick with passion and soul - but then it went and did it!

i'm loving the really lush side to this one, something to whisk your cluttered mind away from the mess and into some heavenly place.

those vocals reach some real heights! big Bee Gee's energy when it hits the falsetto. that over a healthy dollop of indie-folk makes for a breezy listen.
