The background of Collegians.
‘GET A DECENT DOSE OF GLEAMING INDIE SWAGGER AND ART ROCK FERVOUR’
The third instalment in the Collegians’ story comes in the form of an electronic-soaked sucker punch Killer. Don’t let the mood of the opening swathes of melodic charm fool you, your head and heart soon get a decent dose of gleaming indie swagger and art rock fervour.
Following on from the award-winning smashes Vaccine & Black Mass, this song edges towards the experimental but delivers a chorus whose resolve is as intense as it is effortlessly formularized, providing yet another opportunity for Glenn Patrick’s inexhaustible vocal to bring to the boil all the ingredients and elements of the band’s indefinable musical travelogue.
Killer is a stylistic tilt away from Collegians’ usual focus but signals a side to them which promises all the hallmarks of a unified group of musicians scaling the crest of modernity in the music world.
Killer, was recorded at Refinery Recording with production duties once again handled in-house by James Leigh in collaboration with indie label CULTIVATOR RECORDS and mastering by Grammy Award Nominee Chris Gehringer (Twenty One Pilots, Linkin Park, FUN, Lady GaGa) at Sterling Sound in New York.
Just months after the success of their second release Black Mass, which debuted at #09 on the iTunes rock charts, reached Top 5 in the Australian AMRAP charts, and was added to a host of commercial radio stations playlists across Australia, comes their new track Killer.
Taking out honourable mentions in the U.S Songwriting Competition, finalists in a staggering 4 categories at this years International Songwriting Competition, finalists in the Unsigned Only Competition and most recently ranked #7 in TripleM Austereo’s Homegrown top 30 Australian releases for 2017, Collegians have already surpassed what they thought could be achieved.
As well as garnering breakthrough adds on North American community college radio, the success of Black Mass followed on from the big impact their debut single Vaccine, made at commercial radio nationwide and online in 2017.
Reaching the Top 20 in both the AIR and iTunes Rock charts back in September 2017.
