It's a New Era
When World News finalised the music for 'New Era' ahead of the recording session on February 22nd 2020, they were blissfully unaware that an imminent pandemic was going to rock the entire world.
The session went ahead as planned, with the hardware electronic duo laying down four fresh tracks in a single day at The Oscillitarium with engineer and guitar virtuoso, Tobin Hopwood (Possum).
Following those sessions, and the subsequent cancellation of the tour to support their debut EP, 'The Chosen', the duo took time to reevaluate the project.
The name 'New Era' took on new meaning in the months and years that passed, and in the summer of 2021 World News revisited the material with renewed focus. After completing preliminary mixes, they engaged Toronto's Josh Korody at Candle Recording Studios to mix it.
With the EP slated for release worldwide on Friday 18th March, we pieced together a short 'Making Of New Era' from the recording session, which feels like decades ago now. We hope you enjoy it.
Mark your calendars, this is World News' best sounding material to date.

Idious Carrie's 9 Lives In Technicolor
9 Lives is an energetic missile of a track, taken from Idious Carrie's debut double-a release "O". This heavy rock ballad marks the start of Carrie's solo journey, who is well known in the Toronto music scene as a leading voice in psychedelic rock powerhouse Kali Horse.
The music video for 9 Lives is a work of art by The Oscillitarium and stars Idious amid a mass of colours that fizz and whirl in every direction. The lush organic tones of the music have been paired perfectly courtesy of the movie magic of Sarah Bassakyros, Sophia Bassakyros and Tobin Hopwood. The set was designed with help from Unfazed Floral's incredible flower arrangements.
Check out the video above or head over to Ultra Tube now! We love it and we're sure you will too.
