Picking up right where they left off with 'Change My Mind', IV League return with guitar-heavy, garage-pop banger 'Superstar', the first cut from their forthcoming EP, out later this year.
Conjuring visuals of the late nineties, IV League's new single could easily slot in on the 'Ten Things I Hate About You' soundtrack, sitting snugly between Letters To Cleo and Hole. 'Superstar's' slick, contemporary sheen smooths IV League's bubble-grunge influence while retaining the quintessential ringing guitar tones and pop-infused fuzzed out vocals that have enamoured fans since the bands inception.
Employing the assistance of producer Malcolm Besley (City Calm Down, The Creases, Northest Party House, Client Liason) and mastering magic from Grammy award winning Joe LaPorta (David Bowie, Phoenix, The Killers, Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear) 'Superstar' gives an enticing first taste to forthcoming EP.
Up-sizing the musical treats, IV League present a visual accompaniment to 'Superstar' which sees from woman Bella Venutti leading the sonic revolution and inspiring the four-piece to break free from their mundane, fast food jobs that quash their creativity, grab their instruments and drive off into the sunset.
The double up release is comin' in hot off the back off triple j approved sizzler 'Change My Mind' and supercharged live sets at St Jerome's Laneway Festival, BIGSOUND and Falls Festival and a promise that 2018 will be even bigger. IV League should be experienced live, in all their sweaty, sugar-punk glory and East Coast fans will get their chance in early May. Kicking off at The Foundry on May 6, hitting their hometown haunt The Gasometer on the 25th and sinking their teeth into Sydney as part of Vivid Live.
IV League are officially off the market now, joining forces with Ben Preece in a new partnership, coinciding with Mucho Bravado's ten year anniversary of artist management and breaking Australia's best independent bands. IV League also welcome new booking agent Josh Lane on behalf of Sydney's newest-agency-on-the-block Four Tone Artists.
