Hermitude Announce Studio Release ‘Dark Night Sweet Light’ (Out August 28, 2015)

"While varied, their sound is never left floundering in the realms of mish-mash obscurity, instead finding a sense of direction balanced between indoor and dancefloor," - i-D Magazine

“…the duo have been steadily gaining their well-deserved momentum stateside” – Billboard

"With a combination of hip hop swagger and explosive bass music aesthetics, Australian duo Hermitude has become a force to be reckoned with" - DJ Times

"Their latest original, “Through the Roof” featuring Young Tapz, is simply jaw-dropping" - Dancing Astronaut

"At this point, Hermitude‘s productions are of legendary status." – Hilly Dilly

On August 28, Hermitude, the award-winning duo based in Sydney, Australia will release Dark Night Sweet Light (via Nettwerk Records). Earlier this year, the band shared a brand new track, “Through The Roof,” a lively new single that begins with a rewired Mariachi section sounding the horns before ascending into a powerful synth riff set to swinging drums. Out now, the band releases a six-song remix EP, featuring massive interpretations from HWLS, Sable, AWE, Kito & Reijo and Kilter.

Hermitude have fast become one of Australia’s most in-demand touring acts and are set to make further inroads in the 2015 with festivals slots at Lollapalooza, Governor’s Ball, Lightning In A Bottle, Wakarusa, Counterpoint, Osheaga, Summer Camp Music Festival and most recently at SXSW and BUKU Music + Art Project. Full festival dates below, with headline shows to be announced in the coming weeks.

Partnering with Hilly Dilly, Hermitude shared the hard-hitting, synth-heavy track, “The Buzz” feat Mataya and Young Tapz that appears on the Australian version of the album.

Multi-instrumentalists, Luke Dubber (aka Luke Dubs) and Angus Stuart (aka El Gusto), have collaborated since they were 16 and 11, respectively. With the Platinum-selling HyperParadise, the band won Australia’s Music Prize, modeled after Britain’s Mercury Music Prize and Canada’s Polaris Prize, whose single goal is to identify and reward the most outstanding creative Australian album of the year. Hermitude beat a shortlist of talented artists, including Tame Impala, The Presets and friend/collaborator, electronic producer and instrumentalist Flume. Dark Night Sweet Light is the long awaited follow-up to HyperParadise, a beautifully inventive record of future beats and electronica. The Flume remix of title track has nearly 8.5 million Soundcloud streams and topped Hype Machine’s “Most Popular” at #1.
