Aircooled Tickets

Aircooled return with a new single and album of disco-fuelled locked grooves, rock swagger and glittered poise but with an expanded palette that brings vocals to the fore for the first time. The extended psychomotorik traits are still very much part of the picture but the band have sidestepped into songsmithing with apparent ease and explosive results.

In a year that included sell-out shows at The Lexington - Islington, The Trades - Hebden Bridge and The Brixton Windmill, a stint opening for Suede on tour and the release (and repress) of their debut LP St Leopards, Aircooled found time in their studios in St Leonards on Sea, where they live, to write, record and produce Eat The Gold, a set of winning, infectious tunes that, while neatly avoiding resting on the laurels of their initial success, ignites with all the energy of a band at the peak of their power. From the super solid, relentless grind of Katharine and Justin’s stainless steel rhythm section to the twin-voices-as-one vocals from Riz and Ollie and the psyched-out riffing, wig-out guitars and synthesizers this is mirror ball disco funk rock from a band that’s clearly and unashamedly having a very good time.

Eat The Gold is set for release digitally and on vinyl on 16th February 2024 on the Music’s Not Dead label and will be celebrated with a show at Third Man Records the same day and followed by a series of gigs including Lewes Psych Fest and a major UK tour.

The single, No Reason To Lie and accompanying video will be released into the world via all the streaming platforms on 6th December and is taken from the new album.

The artwork is by artist, Mew (who also did the first LP), Aircooled’s occasional live synthesist.
