Tassie legends Luca Brasi have gifted us with a fresh new single Every Time You’re Here (I’m Gone), lifted from their fifth album, Everything is Tenuous, out February 12 via Cooking Vinyl Australia.
Everything is Tenuous is a natural progression from 2018’s breakthrough ARIA nominated album Stay, which soared to #10 on the ARIA chart and catalysed the biggest tours of their career. Uplifting, powerful and sophisticated, Everything is Tenuous is the Luca Brasi record fans have been pining for.
The album’s next single Every Time You’re Here (I’m Gone) is another top shelf Luca Brasi number that hugs the soul and doesn’t let go. A stirring ode to the most important people in life, Every Time You’re Here (I’m Gone) is a timely reminder that life flashes by fast, so stop and let them know how vital they are, no matter how difficult it is.
Frontman Tyler Richardson explains: “Using songs is a great way to get it out there, stuff that is hard to say, but that you always mean to. I owe my friends and my partner Alix the world, I don’t think you could ever properly explain what people mean, but ‘Every Time You’re Here’ is an attempt to do so. I owe them the world, here’s an attempt to let them know.
“A lot of the record is about the fragility of life, I’ve been thinking about how a lot of things stay, a lot change, and a lot just completely disappear. I don’t necessarily think any of the above is bad, there’s zero you can do to change it, but all the same, it’s on my brain a lot. Everything really is tenuous and sometimes a lifetime feels like a lifetime, sometimes a lifetime feels like a second.”
Luca Brasi have reached a new level with their fifth album, Everything is Tenuous. Propelled by the inactivity of COVID lockdown and encouraged by friends, the four-piece took their first foray into self-recording. After buying a bunch of gear and teaching themselves how to use it, Luca Brasi also self-produced the album with a little help from Darren Cordeux (Kisschasy) before shipping it off to the mainland to be mixed by Grammy-nominated engineer Andrei Eremin (Tash Sultana/Chet Faker).
Empowered by their time at the helm, Luca Brasi have written their most potent songs to date. Already spawning three other beautiful singles in Tangled; Content, This Selfish Love and Dying To Feel Alive, Everything is Tenuous is trademark Luca Brasi – sweetly melodic with a lyrical undertone of melancholia as the band wrestles with losing mates, regret and burnout while also serving a reminder that life is fragile and fleeting, so take a moment to appreciate what matters.
