The Hi-Fi - Brisbane, QLD
ON SALE THURSDAY 7 JUNE, 10AM. New Zealand's Opossom, Los Angeles' White Arrows and Australia's very own Jinja Safari are combing their hair, shining their shoes and putting on their Sunday best for a triple-headline tour that is sure to spark some long-term relationships with fans.
Our favourite party starters Jinja Safari are very pleased to be joining The Blind Date Tour. As way of a welcoming corsage (the kind you take home to your mother) the band have a brand new track to get you shaking. 'Toothless Grin' premiered Wednesday night this week on triple j. Although Australia has been pining for their live antics, don't expect any cobwebs with the band recently getting the UK and North America on board their safari. Trend setting NYC label Neon Gold called their shows at this year's Great Escape Festival in the UK a 'bristling force of nature'. BBC1's Rob Da Bank also jumped on the bandwagon, naming the group a 'cosmic pop safari'. The band have plans to return to the UK, as they were hand-picked for Bestival in September later this year, but not before reminding Australia why the are one-of-a-kind on the Blind Date Tour.
For Kody Neilson, the mastermind behind Opossom, music is in each step, each breath and every waking moment. The ten tracks on debut album "Electric Hawaii" are testament to Neilson's devotion to music. Following the acclaim for his previous incarnation as the singer of The Mint Chicks, the New Zealand born producer, writer and performer, now delivers a rolling debut, drenched in groove-laden psychedelia.
Rounding off this triple bill is Los Angeles' White Arrows. Dizzying new single 'Roll Forever' saw the band take on the UK with their storming live set. With a show compared by the Daily Post as being led into "a cul-de-sac of orgasmic, sweet indie-synth-psychedelic pop" that "blow(s) our tiny little minds".
