Today, rising singer/songwriter Dominic Breen announces an east coast run of shows in support of his new single ‘James Street Tonight’, complete with five piece band and with more dates still to be announced.
The last week has been a busy one for Breen, guesting with Middle Kids for their appearance on ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ and unveiling a stirring new video for ‘James Street Tonight’ (premiered by The Music).
The song has rocketed up The Music Network’s national Community Radio Monitor chart, moving from #31 to #6 this week. The new video was co-directed by Joel Ludemann and Breen himself. Shot in Sydney, it features cameos from other great artists including FRITZ, Georgia Mulligan and Ultracrush.
Co-director Joel Ludemann says “The aim of the clip was to create a simple visual contrast between a lonely feeling of roaming the streets at night and the warmth and connection available on the inside. The latter was intended to be less realistic, and more of what those on the outside imagine the inside to feel like.”
Eagle-eyed viewers will spot easter eggs that connect the clip to earlier Breen videos. The beginning of the new clip links with the end of his previous video for ‘Lovelost’, while the party dancing scenes feature a nod to the ‘light suit’ worn by Richard Roxburgh in Breen’s acclaimed video for ‘Lay Low’.
Dominic’s album is currently in the final stages of production, with more new tracks to be released in the first half of this year. A title and release date will be announced shortly.
