LucaBrasi

Tasmania's Luca Brasi will be teaming up with Tiny Moving Parts and Eliza & The Delusionals for a run of August dates to showcase their new album "Stay".

Whether it’s because of their from-the-heart lyrics, their warm and welcoming stage presence, or their undying support for the local music scene, Luca Brasi truly are the brothers we all wish we had. 2017 saw the Tasmanians hit the road to play the biggest shows of their career; multiple sold out headlining runs, as well as doing the festival circuit with Laneway, Splendour In The Grass, Falls, and their very own Tasmanian based festival ’Til The Wheels Fall Off.

The past twelve months have also been one of reflection and growth for the band. As they find their feet planted further into the ground, the realities of life have begun to settle in, but in true Luca style they have found a way to embrace what some consider limitations with positivity and open hearts, and from that mindset; their new album Stay was born.

“Stay is really about trying to realise what you have, understand what is working for you, and finding acceptance and balance in that life.” Explains vocalist Tyler Richardson. “Approaching 30, some of us having families, others having careers, it’s my first year teaching high school and it’s amazing, but it’s also been hard a times. We’ve seen opportunities come and go that maybe if we were 20 we could have jumped on, but we accepted we couldn’t be on tour all the time, and so we cherish the fact we can do a few Australian runs, maybe jump overseas once or twice a year. To us it really is about focusing on the positive and ensuring we pay it forward.”

Working once again with their tried and tested team of Jimmy Balderston (Ghostnote Studios, Adelaide) and Nic White, the band introduced new blood to the recording process with former tour mate Darren Cordeux of Kisschasy co-producing and Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room (Rise Against, Frenzal Rhomb, A Day To Remember) mixing and mastering. "Darren has a great ear for melody and we immediately thought of him when it came time to review these songs,” says Richardson. "He helped us push these songs to another level. A true legend."

In a time where everyone is focusing on what they’re missing out on, Luca Brasi are continuing to take us to school, putting something out into the universe to say thank you for what they have. “We have to focus on the positive, and to me, Stay is about finding that balance.”
