"And the winner for most glorious new band goes to Cousin Tony's Brand New Firebird." - Dave Le'aupepe, Gang Of Youths
"Melbourne Bitter is such a $%#^ing good song" - Montaigne
Following their critically acclaimed Melbourne Bitter EP and a string of sold out shows in Melbourne and Sydney, Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird have emerged from the belly of the studio with 'Blaze': a psychedelic shedding and shredding of old habits, making way for a bigger and bolder Firebird. Soaring on a cloud of dense synths, Lachlan Rose spews absurdity around blistering guitars and pounding rhythms, all punctuated by Francesca Gonzales’ ethereal vocals. Blaze is unapologetic and powerful, heralding in a new era for the Bird and a glimpse of the colourful, intriguing and strange world of the soon-to-be released debut LP, 'Electric Brown'. Catch the weirdness at Leadbelly on Thursday August 17, as Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird preview brand new tunes off 'Electric Brown', as well as old favourites from the Melbourne Bitter EP and Queen of Hearts EP.
