We're extremely excited to officially announce that Future Classic's latest signee World Champion will be represented by the UNDR Ctrl agency.
World Champion is the brainchild of Sydney pairing William Campion and Julian Sudek. Sudek and Campion met quickly bonding over their love of psych pop and electronica. They also bonded over their dangerous love for Avocados. The project started as a little studio beast; a patchwork of ideas and jams that they had individually been sitting on for years. Together, with Julian on drums and William on vocals the transformed those sketches into fully formed jams.
Anyone who saw them play live at our UNDR Ctrl 1st Birthday will testify they are truly something extra special...
“Avocado Galaxy” is the debut single from latest Future Classic signee World Champion. The Sydney two-piece that is Julian Sudek and Will Campion today share the title track from their forthcoming EP – grab the free download HERE.
The track, which premiered on triple j’s “Good Nights” show this week, is co produced with Jono Ma, combines his signature fingerprints with Sudek’s punchy drum work and Campion’s unmistakably soothing vocals.
The “Avocado Galaxy” remix package will also include edits by Melbourne house hero Tornado Wallace as well as Swedish heliocentric production power Dan Lissvik.
Julian was a founding member of Mercy Arms and has since played with Canyons, FLRL (Jono Ma, Kirin J Callinan) and most recently George Maple. Will Campion has mostly been a bedroom producer, as well as venturing out with local Sydney indie band, The Chevaliers.
As they gear up for their first string of live performances - at Sydney’s Volumes fest this weekend and Brisbane’s BigSound next month – the duo will make it a month of firsts by dropping the accompanying video for “Avocado Galaxy” soon, directed by Elliot Shields of Sydney design collective Pelvis.
Scratching the surface with the backing of some of Sydney’s well-respected creative minds like Future Classic, Jono Ma, and Pelvis - round 1 goes to World Champion.
Upcoming Live Shows:
August 29 - Sydney, Volumes 2015 @ Oxford Art Factory
September 9 - Brisbane, The Winn Outdoor Stage for BigSound
