Melbourne-made, far north Queensland dreamin’ four-piece Minibikes have been soundtracking Australia’s endless summer since the late naughties. Their debut album For Woods or Trail, threw tasty hooks left, right and centre, nestling into the hearts of listeners both at home and abroad.
Their first slice since was 2018’s ‘Magic Happens’ – a drowsy dose of warm afternoon sun complete with beach romance and a hint of melancholy. Now, Minibikes are back and are keen to hit the beach ball back up in the air once again with their punchy new track ‘I Can Feel Ya’.
Released via Cheersquad Records & Tapes, the band’s latest winter denier ‘I Can Feel Ya’ steps the tempo up a notch from ‘Magic Happens’, this time switching out woozy lounge vibes for sharp, driving percussion, funky basslines and self-professed guitar solos to accompany frontman Marcel Borrack’s witty, charismatic dialogue.
Conjuring the fluidity and evocative nature of a perfectly placed synth in true Minibikes fashion, ‘I Can Feel Ya’ is dream pop at high noon and the second single to be lifted from the band’s heavily anticipated album Freaky Dreams due for release in the second half of 2020.
