Sydney art pop darlings I Know Leopard head out for their first headline national tour since 2015 to celebrate the release of their long-awaited debut album, Love is a Landmine (out 5th of April).
Whittled from over three years’ worth of demos, and written against a back drop of emotional turmoil that culminates with new love blossoming, Love is a Landmine is an unashamedly romantic record that pulls you deep into love’s rich gamut of emotions. Produced by The Preatures’ Jack Moffitt and mixed by Luke Million (who also added sounds from his legendary synth collection), I Know Leopard has created the perfect musical complement to the album’s open and impassioned lyrics.
In an indie rock landscape dominated by 90s grunge throwbacks, hardcore punk and scrappy garage bands, I Know Leopard are something of an anomaly. Gloriously out of step, and toting a sense of luxury, glamour and brains with bags of style. As a finished product, Love is a Landmine is the musical equivalent of a space blanket. Gleaming. Shimmering. Retro-futuristic and synthetic, and guaranteed to envelope you and warm you to your very core.
After touring with Gang of Youths, Montaigne and Holy Holy, this is the furthest reaching headline tour to date for lead vocalist LukeO’Loughlin, Rosie Fitzgerald (bass), Jenny McCullagh (violin and keys) and Todd Andrews (guitar). Don’t miss their Vivid Music appearances.
