Byron Bay, Australia’s rising dance band Tora deliver a thrilling new brand of electro-centric indie rock for their newest full-length record, Take A Rest. The 13-track album is a rare record, as challenging as it is radio-friendly. It’s once-removed club music with a lounged-out, analogue twist–a fresh new indie-electro sound that fails to feel referential or dated.
The newly released album features Sam Lawrence, Meryn Jeann, and Grace Pitts on a handful of cuts on the record’s B-side, but it’s largely frontman Jo Loewenthal that lands the most formidable melodies. His voice provides a cool, unhurried counterpoint to the album’s quirky, near-unpredictable productions.
