The good people at Thump have premiered new Roland Tings' jam 'Pala' and had these great words to say about his forthcoming self titled album which drops on January 26...
"Now that we’re all well acquainted with 2015, let us introduce you to its first great album. On January 26, Melbourne producer Roland Tings will release his self-titled debut album Roland Tings. Those who fell in love with his slew of earlier EPs should be far from disappointed by this one. The album sits somewhere in between Italo-disco and house; South American percussion elements ensnare a melodic synth and a dry bass drum.
It’s the kind of album that begs for summer weather―but before you get irrationally angry at Australians and their year round sunbathing, take a moment to grab a fresh mango lassi and hear out his new track 'Pala.' We might not be dealing with the ideal listening environment, but Pala' helps us pretend."
We'll be announcing Roland Tings' album tour soon. But before that there's the small matter of being main support on Chet Faker's rather large national tour kicking off next month...
