Listen: East Brunswick All Girls Choir – ‘Leave The City’

East Brunswick All Girls Choir are excited to share new single ‘Leave The City’. The track is the second cut from their new album Teddywaddy to be released Friday 29th June. Listen below!

The band are launching the album at the Northcote Social Club on Friday 13th July before touring across Australia with Courtney Barnett in August. Tour info below!

‘Leave The City’ takes a slower, more reflective pace, than previous single. As frontman Marcus Hobbs describes the song – “Everyone’s rushing to get somewhere but they don’t know where they’re actually going. A need to be busy driven by the guilt of sometimes taking the time to do nothing.

It’s a fairly simple song in context. I remember one Christmas heading back to the farm and having some time to wander around in the evening. I’d almost forgotten how bright the stars can get. It’s about taking some things for granted. I also really remember the smell of the air. I think the same could also be said for living in the city, people forget to look up. Even in Bendigo it took me so many years to actually notice the buildings. It’s easy to get distracted by what’s right in front of you. . Things are constantly moving and changing but perhaps the most interesting things can be things you have forgotten about or are simply just “part of the furniture”

Teddywaddy is a slumbering patch of country just off the Calder Highway in northwest Victoria, where Marcus Hobbs grew up. It’s also the namesake of the Melbourne ensemble’s long-awaited second album.

Alongside Hobbs who pens the songs is bassist/keyboardist Rie Nakayama, drummer Jen Sholakis and guitarist Rob Wrigley. Co-produced with Anna Laverty, the album is available for pre-order here.
