AUG 16 @ Terrace Bar Newcastle: Pop Singles + Housewives + Polyfox + Hell Setzer

Pop Singles play Newcastle as part of their 2012 LP Launch tour this Thursday night August 16 at Terrace Bar with special guests Housewives, Polyfox And The Union Of The Most Ghosts, and Hell Setzer.

RSVP on Facebook

ALL GONE is the much anticipated debut LP by Melbourne based trio Pop Singles. The band draw similarities with the melodic post punk of the 1980’s (The Triffids, Husker Du, Sad Lovers & Giants), as well as inspiration from local pop luminaries Popolice and Dane Certificate. The production of ALL GONE is assured and composed, encompassing the polished sound of the groups earlier EP and 7″ with the jangly, raw feel of their cassette releases and live shows. A record revealing inner tension, hope and hopelessness: Pop Singles have made a relatable and affecting debut.
