Gold Coast’s favourite brothers have announced the upcoming release of new single ‘High Life’, the much-anticipated follow-up to ‘Diamonds’.
‘High Life’ is a frenzy of firsts. It will be the first female collaboration for Hanlon Brothers, their first electronic / dance track, and the first song produced outside of the band with Xy Latu (Australian X Factor winner) taking on production.
“Hanlon Brothers are known for our versatility, we’re always playing around with the boundaries between hip-hop, RnB, soul and jazz, so we thought it was high time we explored a bit of electronic / dance and I reckon our fans will love it,” Saia Hanlon (drums), told Blank Gold Coast.
Gold Coast artist TOBI features on the new track.
“TOBI is bold and sassy with a very big, bright future in music,” said Saia Hanlon said. TOBI shared the band’s enthusiasm for collaboration.
“Usually I’m more of a producer, so I’m excited I get to write and sing with Hanlon Brothers on this track,” said the 23 year old.
“’High Life’ is about being young and in love and whilst not necessarily being rich you still feel like you’re living the high life with each other.”
‘High Life’ will be available for pre-order from mid September and it’s been some time between tracks. Saia says the band has been working on its future plans.
“The past year has been all about performing as much as possible to develop our show for a global audience,” he said. “We’ve built our new studios in Miami, which are so awesome, it feels like home already and we’ve been kicking things up a notch with the Hanlon School of Music too.”
“We’ve basically been working towards the next phase of our career. We have the Katchafire tour coming up, we’re releasing the new single and showcasing at Australian Music Week in November. So it’s exciting times ahead.”
