Event Details

Today beloved Melbourne band Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird release their driving latest

single  ‘Red Dirt Angel’, and announce details about their album tour kicking off in September. On

their new track, Lachlan Rose proves again that he can combine addictive melodies and poetic lyrics

with a comment on modern Australia. Along with the other tracks from their new album, ‘Red Dirt


Angel’ was written during the last Melbourne lockdown.


“An Australia dreamscape, ‘Red Dirt Angel’ was the first song that opened up the doors to ‘Smiles of

Earth’ - the album it now belongs to. Somewhere during our lengthy Melbourne lockdowns I began

dreaming constantly of the outback. The red dirt angel was a faceless usher who continuously led me

through the arid, red-earth deserts of Australia. I longed to be behind the wheel of a filthy car with no

real destination. For one reason or another, that visual represented ultimate freedom for me, which is

the one thing none of us had. The song followed shortly. It’s unapologetically Australian, euphoric and

a contribution to the wonderful world of road trip music.” Lachlan Rose (Vox/Piano/Synths/Guitar)

‘Red Dirt Angel’ is a timeless and intricate song - an ode to the arid adventures awaiting us in the

post-pandemic world. It was mixed by Melbourne-born, Los Angeles-based talent Matthew

Neighbour (Matt Corby, The Avalanches, Sky Ferreira) and co-produced by Stephen Charles (Ali


Barter, Gretta Ray) and Lachlan Rose at The Aviary in Melbourne.  


Having endured multiple lockdowns and canceled gigs, Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird are now

poised for the wide open road and are excited to announce an extensive east coast run of shows to


support their upcoming album; with more shows TBA.


“I think we’re the kind of band that wins people over one heart at a time. Playing shows is

fundamental to who we are. The last few years have reminded us with absolute certainty that there is

nothing quite like the live music experience, and we couldn’t be more excited or more grateful to be


on the road again.”
