BOAT SHOW Headed for the big smoke

They’ve already released our second favourite album of the year, Groundbreaking Masterpiece, and now Fremantle outfit Boat Show are back with a brand new single, The Big Smoke, the first taste of their as yet untitled sophomore record and second for 2017. The Big Smoke is out digitally on August 18, with special guests Childsaint, Peter Bibby’s Dog Act and Worried About Lizards joining them for the launch this Saturday, August 19 at The Bird.

While on tour in Melbourne this May, the five-piece delved into Black Pearl Studios with Dean Tuza to record album number two. Deciding to go all out after recording their last album in three hours, Boat Show spent two days in the studio.

The Big Smoke is the first single to be released from the sessions. Centred around the frustration of singer Ali Flintoff at all her friends moving from Perth to Melbourne, she says, “It’s like trying to run away from a ghost that you think is haunting your house but it’s actually haunting you, so it follows. Do you like my metaphor? I’m pretty witty, hey.”

Warmly welcomed by sellout crowds across the country while on tour with San Cisco and Thelma Plum earlier in the year, the band are back on the east-side this August and September off the back of their BIGSOUND showcases. In their short time together Boat Show have also supported the likes of Cate le Bon, Cameron Avery, Gooch Palms, Pond, Alex Lahey, Jebediah and Gyroscope.

The Big Smoke is out digitally on August 18. Boat Show launch it with special guests Childsaint, Peter Bibby’s Dog Act and Worried About Lizards this Saturday, August 19 at The Bird.
