You Can’t Change It is the first offering since the majestic Take Your Rest –released late last year and supporting Boy and Bear on an Australian tour. Singer and songwriter Jordan Sturdee has since been hard at work preparing new material.
You Can’t Change It has been engineered and mixed by Karl Cash (Andy Bull, Art vs Science) and mastered by Don Bartley (The Vines, Silverchair, Savage Garden). It is available now through all online digital music retailers.
The cogs have been spinning and turning and now resulting in The Grand Machine being fully operational.
Following on from the success of their first album Polarity and single Borderline, The Bloodpoets released their new album The Grand Machine on August 15. Since its release, the album has reached Number 13 on iTunes Australian Rock Charts.
The Grand Machine was sometime in the making, allowing the band to produce a rawer and high-energy sound to encapsulate the essence of their live show. The songs are a mix of light and shade while still maintaining catchy hooks. The album overall creates a loose story overall that can be enjoyed as a whole or with individual songs.
With the album already containing singles, War, Dance and Ra Ra Ra Ra Riot that have received support from all over the place, including Triple J, Triple J Unearthed, Triple M, Passport Approved, Amazing Radio.
New single, Destroy the Sun, is out now.
The Grand Machine is a punk/pop/rock album where every song is a single (standalone track), however the storyline is carried throughout the album as a whole. In pieces it’s a typical album – as a whole with all the cogs spinning together, it’s art.
The Bloodpoets album The Grand Machine is looking to be the best offering from the band yet.
Jesse Taylor has just released the brand new video for his single, In My Bones.
Born in Queensland Australia, Jesse Taylor is a singer/songwriter with a lot to offer. His brand new single In My Bones is set for release this August 2014.
In My Bones illustrates the idea of two different types of people in the world; one type, who get everything handed to them and haven’t learnt anything in the process of life – people who maintain a complete sense of entitlement and then the people who try their best and who are amazing at what they do but are often under appreciated.
Jesse admits that the lyrics for In My Bones, which eventuated in just around 30 minutes, are an expression of something that he needed to say in a not-so upfront manner: “I was dozing off to sleep at around 2am in the morning and the melody for In My Bones just somehow magically appeared in my head, it was kind of weird.”
From the tender age of 16, Jesse has been writing and performing music. Over the years, as Jesse Taylor’s love for music and song writing grew stronger, he found himself with a remarkable desire to pursue music as his career.
Recorded at Heliport Studios in the Sunshine Coast, produced by Elliot Hienrich and Matt O’Connor, In My Bones was released 4 August 2014.
