About The John Steel Singers

Australian indie pop group the John Steel Singers formed in 2007 in Brisbane. Naming themselves after a toy horse guitarist Tim Morrissey owned as a child, the group, which also consists of Scott Bromiley, Luke McDonald, Ross Chandler, and Pete Bernoth, released a self-titled EP in 2007 followed in 2008 by a mini LP called The Beagle and the Dove. A competent group of multi-instrumentalists and vocalists, their sound mixes clever indie pop with elements of subtle psychedelia and a distinct Krautrock influence. In late 2008, they issued another EP, called In Colour, via Levity Records (owned by Levi Jeans), though they would eventually sign with Dew Process Records for their debut album, 2010's Tangalooma, which was produced by Go-Betweens frontman Robert Forster. Tours abroad to the U.S. and Europe followed as the bandmembers continued to hone their sound by playing major Australian festivals like Splendour in the Grass. Eventually the group settled in to record its follow-up, setting up a makeshift studio in a house owned by Luke McDonald's father on Australia's Gold Coast. Producing and recording themselves, the Singers then enlisted Brooklyn's Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, Fiery Furnaces) to mix the album. Released in 2013 on British indie Full Time Hobby, Everything's a Thread further explored the group's Krautrock tendencies while dialing in on a tight, summery pop sound. ~ Timothy Monger
