Hey Geronimo Unveil New Single ‘Mutant’ and Announce Upcoming Album
Hey Geronimo are set to release their newest single “Mutant”, an incredibly vivacious and warped indie-rock track that features some aggressive swampy guitars, weighed against vibrant and colloquial storytelling. The track is off their upcoming sophomore album due for release later this year, and features Pluto Jonze (the newest member of the squad) on lead vocals. “Mutant” will be released Friday 14th of April 2017 via MGM/Chugg Music.
“Mutant” is an anecdotal journey of personal embarrassment. As described by co-writer Pete Kilroy, the song details the unfortunate true story of the two times he met Courtney Barnett. Both times he was nervous, and both times he had too many drinks to settle those nerves. As Kilroy recounts, “The two times I met Courtney I was a babbling, indecipherable mess. It’s hilarious now, but for a long time after I was mortified that I couldn’t keep it together. Not once, but twice!”
In 2016 Hey Geronimo released their debut album CRASHING INTO THE SUN to widespread critical acclaim. CRASHING INTO THE SUN became one of the best-reviewed independent Australian Records of 2016. Praise for the album came from The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Rolling Stone, and The AU Review, amongst others. Other highlights of 2016 included performing on triple j’s Like a Version, being nominated for a Queensland Music Award, and adding Sydney based songwriter Pluto Jonze to the line-up.
“We believe that if your band stops evolving, it dies. Every one of our favourite acts reinvented themselves at various times of their career, and we’re very conscious of that. If you churn out the same old thing over and over, you become very creatively redundant – and then you’re cooked. That’s why we’re doing something a little different for everybody in 2017”
– PETE KILROY
Hey Geronimo have spent the summer writing and recording their sophomore album, along with crafting a brand new live show that will debut at Sydney’s Rare Finds in April.
“Hey Geronimo live on pop’s fast and curious side. Think jangly riffs, sped up lyrics, warped vocal loops and crashing riffs aplenty.” – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
“There is a remarkable consistency of style and vision… Every tune has moments of melodic perfection worth of The Beach Boys” – THE AU REVIEW
