[Audio] Tear Council’s ‘My Car’

 

Tear Council

The shaping-up-to-be-utterly-amazing new project from ex-Van She man Matt Van Schie and ex-Van She man Touch Sensitive; Tear Council have offered up another new tune for us. My Car follows on from the duo’s début single Anywhere, and continues in a similar vein. While we were writing this post we wondered what happened to Tomek, Matt, Michael and Nicky have done loads of post-Van She stuff but Tomek is barely heard from. Well, Tomek is now a furniture designer. So that happened.

Anyway…My Car glides out of the speakers in that breezy Van She manner we’re all used to. Low key and subtly smooth, My Car blends easy going basslines and relaxed Disco beats with a cheeky vocal that doesn’t take itself to seriously. The waves of summer evening synths that roll over the track capture a carefree mood and are the icing on the nostalgic cake. Pure sunshine bliss.

The gloriously retro début single from ex-Van She man Matt Van Schie and ex-Van She man Touch Sensitive, Tear Council’s Anywhere, has not as a spanking new music video to go with it’s lavish, emotional SynthPop.

Miška Mandić directs the clip, a suitably vintage affair that pains the duo with a sixties spy thriller performance vibe featuring a guest appearance from backing vocalist Holiday Sidewinder.

Tear Council

Matt Van Schie sure does know how to pick his musical partners. The Van She mastermind has most recently been kicking around with MiGHty mOUse as the wonderful Du Tonc. While the mOUse is busying himself with some mOUsey stuff (more on that in the near future!) the other Matt isn’t sitting on his laurels. He’s teamed up with one of Australia’s hottest Disco producers, the Pizza Guy himself, Touch Sensitive (which isn’t that surprising, as Touch Sensitive is actually Van She guitarist Michael Di Francesco, formerly Arithmatix!. Are you keeping up?). The new project is called Tear Council, here is their first record, Anywhere.

Unsurprisingly, Anywhere is a strong Van She vibe. Think Van She’s more chilled, introspective moments with a Tropical Disco groove. It feels like these guys are staying true to themselves and their writing style, but incorporating all the influences and musical lessons they’ve learnt from he past few years in various dance music outfits. The song itself is a lush and emotional antipodean croon, a mature evolution of Van She’s carefree Indie that drapes itself over an inviting blend of laid back Disco and infectiously catchy Tropical leads. The ultimate city nights jam?

♫ Tear Council – Anywhere

Tear Council’s Anywhere is released 13th February.
