“We’ve all experienced the hypnosis of love at first sight, imagining a life with a person, but coming to the realisation that you don’t know a thing about them,” Pacific Avenue say of their latest track Sally.
Navigating through the nauseating feeling of abrupt love, Pacific Avenue stroll trough lush harmonies and catchy hooks to deliver a dreamy and infectious piece of indie surf-pop.
Allow Pacific Avenue to pull you into the nauseating hypnosis of love with their irresistibly dreamy beach-pop.
Based on the South Coast of New South Wales, Pacific Avenue are made up of Harry O’Brien on vocals and guitar, Ben Fryer on lead guitar, Jack Kay on bass and vocals, and Dom Littrich on drums.
Written by vocalist Harry O’Brien, Sally is about falling in love, and daydreaming about the life you and your prospective partner could spend together.
The video depicts a ’70s era speed-dating meet-up, where our protagonist meets Sally. He then proceeds to daydream about their future together… a future that includes being fed hot chips covered in body oil. True romance.
The whole clip is bathed in a golden sheen, as if it was filmed on Venice Beach. A place where the lovers are sun-kissed and roller discos still exist, we guarantee you’ll want to travel to Sally’s future too.
After the band’s debut single In Your Arms flew to number one on the triple j Unearthed charts in May last year, Pacific Avenue have played support slots for San Cisco, The Belligerents, British India, as well as laying down a set at Sounds Of The Suburbs festival in Sutherland.
If the sun-drenched Sally is anything to go by, you can bet we’ll be lining up for Pacific Avenue’s next gig in Sydney. For now, you can catch them live at the University of Wollongong’s Garden Party on March 23rd.
