Tales In Space – Weapon of You (Spotify)

Sydney artist, Tales in Space, return with their dark and edgy bass-driven single, Weapon Of You. Continuing on with their kitsch lo-fi production, the track features grinding dark undertones with layered vocals with a touch of nostalgic synth.

Tales in Space find a lush blend of organic powerful instrumentation, mixed with a hint of signature pop vibes.
Weapon Of You is the first official single from the upcoming record of the same name, due out August 14th.

Luke Bertoz, the architect behind Tales in Space, has kept a low profile over the last year since releasing his debut album ‘Formula’ in late 2014; a collection of hard hitting pop tunes like 'Shades' and lush indulgent production heavy tracks like ‘Time Machine’, the album was delicious.

2014 saw the band release their debut record ‘Formula’ Bursting with quirky and imaginative indie-pop gems, Formula builds upon the same rousing, anthemic stylings of ‘Shades’, which won the The John Lennon Song writing competition, was nominated as a finalist in the Vanda & Young songwriting competition, and received high rotation on Triple J.

The band had a hugely successful 2013/14 with their hit 'Shades' and follow-up single, ''In A Million Places At Once', as well as a huge run of tours and including shows with Rufus, Kingswood, and TK Maizda.

Weapon of You is out now. It will be added to their forthcoming sophomore record.
