Hot off the success of Triple J favourite Plastic Guns, Emperors are set to release their highly anticipated debut album, Stay Frosty.
Stay Frosty is noisy pop at it’s best, played by a band unashamedly stuck in their own bubble of musical influences and unlikely to become the darlings of Pitchfork anytime soon. No song titles are spelled incorrectly or without vowels, and there are no traces of synthesizers or keys. There is no content which should inspire reviewers to use genre names such as “chill wave” and “glitch hop”, nor any music written whilst wearing a v-neck t-shirt.
There are plenty of power chords (about four per song), moderate amounts of studio wizardry, brutal drumming played by a friendly giant and lashings of male/female harmonies. Lyrical con- tent ranges from discontinued friendships to lusting after hipster girls on buses. Most importantly, the album contains actual songs that you will remember, even though they’ve been arranged in the same verse / chorus / verse structure used in most other good songs from the past 50 years.
Emperors first made their mark on the Australian music landscape in 2010 when they were ‘Unearthed’ by Triple j shortly after forming. This led to a slot at the Big Day Out, a Rolling Stone feature, a WAMi award for ‘Most Promising Act’ and the release of the EP Sam. Along the way there’s been four national tours and support slots with Manic Street Preachers, The Big Pink, Silversun Pickups, British India, Shihad, Jebediah, Front End Loader and many more.
Produced by Dave Parkin (Jebediah, Sugar Army), Stay Frosty will be released nationally on April 20, 2012 on Gun Fever via MGM.
