Lowrider still aim­ing high

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE 'N' LOUD -

quar­tet Lowrider – Joe Braith­waite, brothers Paul and John Bartlett and Scott Dun­can – launched their na­tional Black Stones al­bum tour this month. Recorded last year be­tween the famed Red Bull Stu­dios in Los An­ge­les and Chapel Lane Stu­dios, in Ade­laide, the band’s third stu­dio al­bum is a lush col­lec­tion of beau­ti­fully pro­duced songs that hang to­gether in per­fect har­mony. Cat­e­goris­ing Black Stones’ time­less sound seems un­nec­es­sary. Suf­fice to say, it’s an al­bum in the all-killer, no-filler sense; its over­ar­ch­ing vibe 100 per cent Lowrider. ‘‘It’s taken the good part of two years mak­ing this al­bum,’’ Braith­waite says. ‘‘We’re very proud of it.’’ Nova has al­ready picked up the boom­ing first sin­gle, Golden Sun. The group re­leased a spe­cial pre-or­der of the al­bum that came with its very own ‘‘beefed up’’ Black Stones McLaren Vale shi­raz. ‘‘We’re all very big wine fans and this time round specif­i­cally we wanted to do some­thing with a lo­cal win­ery,’’ Braith­waite says. Lowrider and Red Bull also re­leased four be­hindthe-scenes videos on Red Bull Aus­tralia’s web­site in the lead-up to the al­bum’s re­lease.
