6s & 7s Announce Album Launch Tour

Following a huge album launch in hometown Perth, 6s & 7s will launch their acclaimed debut album Choose The Sentinel Blooze in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide next month.

Catch 6s & 7s on Thursday 26 August at Melt Bar in Sydney, Friday 27 August at The Workers Club in Melbourne, Saturday 28 August at Pure Pop Records in Melbourne, and Sunday 29 August at the Grace Emily Hotel in Adelaide.
Featuring the unique talents of Josh Fontaine, previously the frontman for Perth’s now-defunct The Stickfigures, Choose the Sentinel Blooze contains reinventions of live favourites including the 2007 WAMi Song of the Year ‘Holidayz’ and ‘Kissing for Science’, and also introduces a batch of amazing new songs.

A lo-fi epic stitching the ephemera of Panda Bear to the futuristic sadness of Grandaddy, Choose the Sentinel Blooze features contributions from over 20 members of the Perth music community. The result is a record as quirky and grand as a hungover Pet Sounds.

The record has already made an impact across the country, achieving feature album status on RTR FM (Perth) and rotation on triple j and FBi (Sydney).

Formed in 2008, 6s & 7s have quickly risen through the Perth music ranks to become one of the best known and most frequently gigging pop bands in town. They have spent the last two years reacquainting audiences with the live power of Fontaine’s falsetto voice and fiery guitar, showcasing their new band line up featuring current and former members of New Rules for Boats, Superengine, Dom Mariani and the Majestic Kelp, the Burton Cool Suit and The Bank Holidays.

6s & 7s Choose the Sentinel Blooze is available now through Love Is My Velocity and distributed by Fuse Music Group. Don’t miss them launch the album in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide next month.

    “Fontaine’s music trickery is a fantastic collision of booming highs and delicate lows – both equally well executed by the artist and his advanced understanding of dynamics”. – X-Press Magazine

    “A wash of classic pop licks and cloudy lo-fi guitars” – Steph Hughes, triple j

    “Fontaine’s clever lyrics and eerie vocals are submerged in the musical swell of a fantasyland only he could conceive … 6s & 7s envelop you in a warm embrace while floating through the languid beauty of a galaxy far away”. – John Kay, Six Thousand
