WORLD’S END PRESS
THINK LOCAL ACT GLOBAL
THE ARTIST: Melbourne’s new wave, no-wave throwbacks who point their hips/lips forward.
CURRENT RELEASE: Tall
Stories EP set to drop on September 25 via Liberation.
THE DEAL: WEP have been toiling away, working on the follow-up to the lauded, pitchperfect pop adventures of their self-titled debut album. The Crystal Waters meets Simply Red track Tall Stories dropped this week and lit up the blogosphere. Premiering on revered tastemakers site The 405, they wrote “Like their contemporaries The Presets and Cut Copy, Melbourne band World’s End Press make disco-tinged, energetic dance music bursting with dizzy energy.” Athens’ site
Last Gas Station says it “delivers an addictive slice of dance pop with ridiculously catchy melodies. It’ll be rattling around your head for days.” Pilerats noted WEP have “returned to a vibe similar to their popular debut album. Tall Stories is a dynamic twist on their original sound, with frontman John Parkinson’s vocals breezing over a house-infused dance beat” and added “Tall Stories is the first single by World’s End Press under their new agency UNDR CNTRL.” Acid Stag quipped
‘Stories is “a super fun, energetic tune that is said to be the first taste of a larger announcement that will be made next week — wonder what that could possibly be …?” Why, that’d be a national tour. They’ll play Wooly Mammoth on Oct 10 and then prepare more Second Day
Uptown funk for Michael Gudinski’s Liberation stable.
