The Seven Ups – 'The Old World' Album launch
Melbourne’s 7-piece heavy groove combo, The Seven Ups, are releasing their fourth studio album, titled: The Old World.
In line with the Governments "Open Premises Directions", the "Stay Safe Directions", and for the health and safety of all our guests and staff, all staff and guests will be required to show certification that they are fully Covid-19 vaccinated, or a valid exemption, in order to gain entry to the venue.
After many lockdown delays, Melbourne’s 7-piece heavy groove combo, The Seven Ups, are finally releasing their fourth studio album, titled: The Old World.
The latest offering from the band is an abstruse journey into the darker fringes of instrumental music, drifting from funk to spiritual jazz and through to psychedelic fuzz rock.
Inspired by the catastrophic year that was 2020, the bands recording sessions were rescheduled three times due to extended Melbourne lock downs, before finally being recorded in November 2020.
The album’s title, The Old World, refers to life before the onset of the pandemic which shattered 21st century humanity’s sense of stability and invincibility. Arcing back to the simplicities and blissful ignorance that existed before the grim onset of empty supermarket shelves, deserted streets and a world locked down.
Released via Northside Records on limited edition, “night-sky” marbled vinyl, the band will be launching the new album with special guests Thando and Charlie Need Braces.
