Introducing WHITE SUMMER, the howling, swamp-blues playing trio made up of Jimmy Stanfield, Michael Barnsley and Anthony Zielke from Melbourne Australia. White Summer will be releasing their first single “Head In The Sand” from forthcoming 4-track EP on Friday 11th October with an official Single Launch Party on Thursday 24th October at The Evelyn, Fitzroy. Joining them to celebrate the release will be Kashmere Club, Winter Moon and Bones Blackwood.
Following the success of their 2012 Double-A-Side, including feature track “Dirty Highway” which showcased on A&E Network’s U.S series “Longmire”, “Head In The Sand” is a heartfelt addition to the band’s growing repertoire. Featuring a towering guitar hook, vintage drums, a garage-charged bassline and Jimmy Stanfield’s angst-filled vocals, the track would sit comfortably for anyone swaggering into their local beer-drenched oasis.
“Shit hot” and “enthralling, mesmerizing” – The Ripe
