Frontier Touring is incredibly excited to reveal that Sydney trio GLADES will be taking the stage this January as special guest to one of the biggest names in electronic music, Clean Bandit, for all shows on their East Coast headline tour.
Karina Wykes, Cameron Robertson, and Joseph Wenceslao first met in high school before forming GLADES in 2015. Early singles, ‘Her (Loving You)’ and ‘Drive’ garnered massive attention from tastemakers like Billboard, Hype Machine and Pigeons and Planes. Reviews catapulted GLADES to air on triple j and receive tens of millions Spotify streams.
“If I was directing a film that was described as ‘a coming-of-age love story’, I’d definitely use [‘Drive’] in the soundtrack” ★★★★ – Dom Alessio, triple j
Their debut EP This Is What It’s Like (EMI) was released late last year, delivering more of their acclaimed atmospheric synths, reverb-laden guitars, tender lyrics and complex beats in tracks such as ‘Speechless’ and ‘Summer Air’.
2017 has kept the group busy, including a collaboration with Brisbane artist Feki on ‘Love You Better’ and numerous live dates both Down Under and across the US and Canada. Latest single, ‘Do Right’ dropped just days ago, and uses their reflective, melodic electro-pop to respond with love rather than hate to some of the year’s troubling events, encouraging people to look out for others and treat each other right.
Consistently pushing boundaries of modern pop with their diverse blend of electronica, dancehall, classical, R&B and pop, Clean Bandit have produced phenomenal dance floor anthems in ‘Real Love (feat. Jess Glynne)’ (certified ARIA Platinum), ‘Symphony (feat. Zara Larsson)’ (3x ARIA Platinum) and latest single ‘I Miss You (feat. Julia Michaels)’ which has already clocked over 72.4 million Spotify streams.
GLADES will join Clean Bandit for their entire 2018 Australian tour, adding their dreamy vocals and infectious beats to what’s sure to be a series of dynamic, high-energy shows. Tickets are on sale now, so don’t sleep on picking some up!
