To celebrate the forthcoming release of her sophomore album Blastoma available on 10 June via her own label Maximillion Brown, Ngaiire is set to hit the road and blast stages in Adelaide, Perth, Ballarat Central, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Jindabyne and Hobart with her powerful vocals.
Ngaiire serves up the next cut of her forthcoming LP. Titled ‘I Can’t Hear God Anymore’, the devastating track tells more of the Blastoma story, the heartbreak that came before the strong survival messages of ‘Once’ and ‘Diggin’.
The songstress’ unique brand of future soul has seen ‘Diggin’, the second single from the upcoming album, achieve high rotation spins from radio around the country, and the first single ‘Once’, landed at No. 73 on triple j’s Hottest 100.
Joining her will be Melbourne producer and multi-instrumentalist Lanks – who has just come off his own headline tour off the back of his new single, ‘Golden Age’ – as well as co-collaborator, and one half of Blastoma’s production team Jack Grace.
Aside from ‘Golden Age’, Lank’s massive Just a Gent collaboration Heavy as a Heartbreak has also conquered national airwaves and garnered high streams. Lanks initially captured the attention of the blogosphere with his debut EP ‘Thousand Piece Puzzle’ and has shared the stage with electronic favourites such as Airling, Broods, SAFIA and The Acid.
Ngaiire’s second LP, Blastoma, saw her team up with long time collaborators Paul Mac and Jack Grace as well as new friend Megan Washington. Ngaiire has gone some way to become a powerhouse songwriter and vocal force to be reckoned with in the past couple of years, selling out shows around Australia and supported John Legend, Alicia Keys, Cody ChestnuTT, and Sufjan Stevens, with upcoming shows with Leon Bridges in July already selling out.
Under Ngaiire’s belt are festivals including Glastonbury, CMJ and Falls Festival. Last year, she soulfully interpreted the Tame Impala single The Less I Know The Better for triple j’s Like a Version. Those still chasing the spine tingling feeling that her Like A Version elicited can find it in ‘I Can’t Hear God Anymore’; available for individual purchase via iTunes, or as an immediate download with pre-orders of Blastoma.
