Dew Process is pleased to welcome The John Steel Singers to the fold. With their exciting debut album "Tangalooma" ready to unfurl in November, The John Steel Singers are poised to become one of the bands of the year. Having already gained kudos as the inaugural triple j unearthed award winners for their Scott Horscroft produced EP, "The John Steel Singers: In Colour", the six-piece continues to pack a punch. Inspired by Queensland's beautiful bay area, "Tangalooma" enlisted the skills of the gentleman of indie-pop, Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens to take the production reigns. The John Steel Singers have a long history with the Brisbane purveyors of pop music The Go Betweens. One night at Rics Bar, the great, late Grant McLennan bailed up frontman Tim Morrissey in the toilet after they had played one of their very first gigs and told them he thought they were really good. Tim, shy in the presence of greatness, remained silent and modest, awe-struck by what had just taken place. A few weeks later, Grant McLennan sadly passed away and Tim never got to say all the things that later ran through his head. However, Robert Forster picked up the mantle of championing these young Brisjanglions to become their producer. It's a dream come true for the band to be working with their musical heroes. With six members traversing across instruments like explorers, The John Steel Singers bring another dimension to the indie pop aesthetic with an accomplished brass section on trombone and trumpet. "Tangalooma" maintains John Steel's unique sense of indie rock, whilst bringing that unique dance-a-long joyous pop that has been their trademark on hits such as 'Evolution', 'Rainbow Kraut' and 'The Masochist'.
