Collarbones third album Return is out now worldwide by Two Bright Lakes / Remote Control Records.
Collarbones' Travis Cook and Marcus Whale met in 2007. With Cook in Adelaide and Whale in Sydney, the duo have not let distance stop them and have since co-written and produced three full-length albums together, beginning with their brilliant debut album Iconography and second album Die Young in 2012. Since then, Collarbones have performed collaboratively with Synergy Percussion at Vivid Sydney and released a mix tape Atlantis 2014 that featured the single ‘Burnout’. The duo have pushed boundaries with their dense, compelling live show - supporting Jessie Ware, Deerhunter, How To Dress Well and a string of local collaborators and friends including Rainbow Chan, Guerre, Oscar Key Sung & Martin King.
Return is an album of 9 songs that documents the erratic mood swings which come after a break up and the narcissism that follows. It deals with the fantasies surrounding love, and hones in on harsh realities. Collarbones have often played with the idea of genre and this album sees the collaborative band delving in many directions, in order to find their own path. The sincere and compelling sound of Return bridges the Teen Idol meditations found on earlier albums and solidifies Collarbones as a true gift to listeners.
