Following the recent release of ‘FREE THE LIGHT’, taken from the album SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE released late last year through MGM Entertainment, Melbourne rockers ZOOPHTYE are proud to unveil the new video.
Premiering across the Triple M Network platforms, the video connected immediately with fans and saw views hit just over 2000 in 24 hours with nearly 4000 Unique Browsers within the same timeframe. By the end of the one week Triple M Network exclusive period, the video had escalated to in excess of 5000 views on YouTube and continues to climb.
Blazing back into the spotlight throughout 2012 with the release of singles ‘LET YOU GO’ and ‘EARLY MOURNING’ along with their sophomore album SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE, the band quickly emerged as media darlings with wide support from media nationally. Since kicking off in March 2012, the band shared stages with the likes of INXS, Eskimo Joe, Tex Perkins and Jebediah completing 60 odd shows around the county and a string of dates in Noumea, New Caledonia.
‘FREE THE LIGHT’ is the third instalment from SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE and is one of several songs written during a weekend writing session in a huge tin shed, in the Victorian country town of Alexandra.
“All the songs that came out of this session had a largeness about them, probably due to the wide open acoustics of the space we were in,” explains lead singer Cam Lee.
And ‘FREE THE LIGHT’ is no exception. The rolling fuzz bass line generates a great driving feel in the verses, and the punchy chorus vocals provide a catchy hook that will see the most timid of people bopping along. Lyrically the song explores the range of feelings experienced when a relationship first begins and how that attraction can be all consuming whether it is the right thing or not.
Reinforcing the strength of the new album SOMEWHERE ELSEWHERE, late last year ZOOPHYTE joined the ranks of the extraordinary talent roster at Mushroom Music Publishing. This has seen their tunes featured regularly across some of the nation’s most established TV shows, including Home & Away and Neighbours.
With a killer live set, the band has generated support from fans and media alike, carving out their own niche in the Aussie rock landscape with their latest album. ‘FREE THE LIGHT’ and SOMEWHERE ESLEWHERE are available digitally through iTunes.
To celebrate the release of the video, ZOOPHYTE will be headlining a series of shows in Melbourne at REVOLVER throughout June and July.
