Melbourne lush pop quartet Totally Mild have just revealed the first single and video Today Tonight from their upcoming second album Her. The video was premiered overnight via UK's Clash Music.
They are also launching Today Tonight with shows in Melbourne and Sydney in November, and can now announce the supports for each show - see the details below!
Today Tonight is two and a half minutes of soaring pop bliss, with a lustrous video directed by KEWL’s Tobias Willis, referencing cinematic classics of faded glamour and isolation like Sunset Boulevard and A Woman Under the Influence.
About the song, singer Elizabeth Mitchell says “Written during a period of unemployment, Today Tonight is quite literally me passing the days waiting for my girlfriend to come home from work. Sinking into the kind of depression that comes from doing nothing when you have the time to do whatever you want, the guilt of unproductivity. The house becomes a trap, you’re not interesting enough to leave it anyway.”
Totally Mild will be releasing Her in February 2018 on LP, CD and digital via Chapter Records. Her follows on from Totally Mild’s acclaimed 2015 debut Down Time (released by Bedroom Suck in Australia, Fire Records in the UK).
Founded in 1992, Chapter is one of Australia's longest running and best loved independent record labels. Its catalogue of almost 150 releases includes artists like Twerps, Dick Diver, Laura Jean, NO ZU, The Goon Sax and Beaches. Tone Deaf have called Chapter "almost unequivocably the most treasured record label in Australia", while Rolling Stone called them "one of Australia's most enduring and popular independent labels." Chapter Music is distributed worldwide via the Secretly Canadian Distribution.
