Last night, World Champion premiered their brand new track "Shakes" with esteemed musical tastemaker Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio. The single is the second release off the pair's forthcoming Avocado Galaxy EP, out on December 4th via Future Classic.
The band first appeared on our radar with their infectious single "Avocado Galaxy," described by Noisey as "zingy synth-pop at its finest" with Red Bull also chiming in calling it "a delicious slice of spacey indie-electronica." More recently, Future Classic gave the single the remix treatment, releasing the 'Avocado Galaxy Remix EP' featuring collaborations from Lissvik, Tornado Wallace and Ras G.
World Champion, aka William Campion and Julian Sudek, have a few exciting months ahead. Not only will December see their debut EP drop on Future Classic, but the duo will also be touring the nation. Having lined up multiple festival appearances kicking off with At First Sight in Sydney, alongside a string of dates including Beach Road Hotel (Bondi), Lost Paradise Festival, FBi SMAC Awards, Mountain Sounds Festival, the pair have also locked in a sought-after support slot for Toro Y Moi's Sydney show come January.
If “Avocado Galaxy” earned this two-piece the backing of some of Sydney's well-respected creative minds like Future Classic, Jono Ma, and Pelvis, with “Shakes”, World Champion take it interplanetary.
