A new musical project from the team behind the disco-flavored band Groove City, Jacket Weather from Sydney offers an exhilarating debut with ‘Go-Go Boots’, a track that draws heavily on his 60s lounge music and 70s yacht rock influences.
With ‘Go-Go Boots’, the trio of Calum Mawson (vocals / guitar), Daniel Mugridge (lead guitar) and Dan Andaloro (bass) have created a track that has a Lime Cordiale vibe meets Winston Surfshirt, and lives up to it. their biography: “Hard as a rock, but soft as a feather.”
Its lush, cruisy swagger gives off a lot of warmth, while the sophisticated harmonies will make you swoon as the cool, downtempo melodies are balanced by tropical space-age rhythms. It’s a groove that keeps on giving.
“‘Go-Go Boots‘ is one of those songs that comes to you in 24 hours and feels like writing!
â€œWe love it when this happens because the stress of writing is free and it becomes easier to focus on the MO of the song,â€ the trio says.
â€œWe went for a distinct late ’70s Americana / LA ride on this one, inspired by the even older late’ 60s boots that Cal’s girlfriend had at the time.
“In its essence, ‘Go-Go Boots’ is a tongue-in-cheek way of saying ‘I love you’ for the first time to a new romance.”
Ahead of the song’s release tomorrow (October 14th), scenestr is delighted to present the music video for ‘Go-Go Boots’ today. Enjoy.
â€œThe video was designed with the idea that we wanted the audience to focus on the song and not create visuals that would take away from that experience, but rather enhance it,â€ add the guys at Jacket Weather.
“What better way than to have a lady in go-go boots listening to the vinyl track!”
You’ll only have one chance to go upstairs with Jacket Weather, as their elevator heads to the penthouse. We’ll see each other there.
