Frontier Touring, Soothsayer and I OH YOU presents
CHANNEL TRES w/ special guest MISS BLANKS
Frontier Touring, Soothsayer and I OH YOU are thrilled to confirm debut Australian performances for LA artist Channel Tres in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane this November. In advance of his self-titled EP out July 27 via Godmode (Yaeji, Shamir), Channel delivers new single 'Jet Black', another taste of his unorthodox union of four-on-the-floor and Compton.
Jet Black is an oozy ode to the blackest of black over a ferocious modular synth that takes cues from industrial and early electro. Directed by cult filmmaker Anthony Sylvester, the accompanying video captures Channel's hometown of Compton at its most contorted, where barbershops double as churches and liquor stores become after-hour raves.
The new track follows on from Channel's imposing debut 'Controller'. With an effortlessly deep voice, as if Barry White didn't realise he was Barry White, Channel took classic Detroit house and reimagined it with the surly attitude of West Coast rap. Pitchfork, NPR, Gorilla vs. Bear, BBC Radio 1, Spotify, Apple Music, and KCRW were early champions and the track claimed the #1 position on the Spotify Viral chart in Australia.
'...commanding first impression..' - Pitchfork
'..unmissable artist..' - Pigeons and Planes
'..hypnotic..' - Earmilk
Performing at Howler in Melbourne, Woolly Mammoth in Brisbane and Oxford Art Factory in Sydney, Channel will deliver a mesmerising mix of music and movement. Backed by a vibrant dance troupe, this production is set to be one of the most highly anticipated tours of the year.
