DEAR SEATTLE are taking to the motorways on a mammoth regional tour across Australia in 2024 off the back of their recent single ‘idc’. An instant modern-day grunge classic, Sydney indie mavericks DS return armed with the anthemic new single, out now via Domestic La La.
Packed with fuzzy guitars, nostalgic rock nods and catchy melodics for days,
‘idc’ follows on from the quartet's recent upbeat outing ‘Nothing's Stopping Me Now’ with lashings of heart and a criminally catchy chorus primed for group singalongs.
Produced by long-time Dear Seattle friend and producer Fletcher Matthews
(Trophy Eyes, The Buoys, STUMPS), ‘idc’ cuts a sharply fun figure, with the
latest track ultimately starting life as a joke, springing to life at the end of an
extensive writing session.
"idc started out as a joke," shares guitarist and vocalist Brae Fisher. "Our
producer Fletcher and I had spent almost a month writing a song every day, and I think we both went a bit loopy and needed to blow off some steam. I was actively trying to write the worst lyrics I could for the chorus, which is where the line “write a chorus rhyme it with nirvana came from”... and we were just laughing the whole session. Annoyingly the song itself and the melodies turned out to be sick and our whole team loved it. The more I listened to it though, the more I realised how much I loved it’s message, namely that I need stop taking myself so seriously all the time, sometimes it’s nice to just be a dumb kid again."
"Nowadays we’re constantly being polarised, judged and becoming more and more detached from each other in the process. It sucks. Life is tough. It gets expensive, it’s constantly demanding, and we’re surrounded by so much
negativity that it’s hard to find the motivation to put on pants in the morning, so whatever you need to do to make it that little bit easier, just do it."
Tickets to the ‘idc’ tour are on sale now, catch Dear Seattle throughout May,
June & July.
