Ahead of his debut LP Into The Distance, which is slated to be released early next year, singer, songwriter and producer Surahn has released this single, 'Wanted To Fly'. Surahn is a founding member of dance group The Swiss and a long-time touring member of Empire of the Sun; in addition, he took a spot as guest vocalist for Flight Facilities on their most recent tour of the US.
If you're a Pink Floyd fan, you'll dig 'Wanted To Fly': it's a joyful psych number featuring soaring synthesisers, upbeat key progressions, sporadic licks of piano and impassioned vocals, all glued together by a truly groovy bass line. We recommend that you squeeze into a pair of flares and chuck on some orange-tinted shades before kicking back to listen to this one.
Surahn has embarked on a national tour and recently hit Melbourne alongside Flight Facilities and the MSO. He's moving on to WA, SA and Queensland next, so grab some tickets if he pops up in your area and keep your eyes on him into the new year.
