Brisbane indie-pop act Fresco Kyoto bring together meticulous production, gorgeous textures and the exceptional voice of frontman Robbie Balmer in their powerful new single, ‘Whatever You Say’, set for release Friday April 3rd via Double Drummer.
Co-written and co-produced by Aidan Hogg (Jaguar Jonze, Holy Holy, Hatchie), ‘Whatever You Say’ is the follow-up to last year’s debut EP from this rising young Brisbane band. Displaying a fusion of electronic, indie-rock and vocal soul, ‘Whatever You Say’ is as ethereal as the band’s previous material. But with a refined sense of dynamics and a huge, defiant chorus befitting these unpredictable times.
Recorded between The Moon Room and Hunting Ground Studios in Brisbane, ‘Whatever You Say’ follows a period of soul-searching in which the band honed their influences into something distinctly their own. As the first taste of music from them in 2020, it’s a strong statement.
With a burgeoning live following in their native Brisbane, Fresco Kyoto’s recent shows have included a sold out headline at The Zoo, as well as supports with Greta Stanley, Jaguar Jonze and Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird. An east coast tour in support of ‘Whatever You Say’ is pending as soon as circumstances allow.
