Revered Australian dance trio
PNAU, have shared their newest single "Go Bang", taken from their upcoming fifth studio album, Changa. "Go Bang" follows on from the group's widely acclaimed and twice ARIA-nominated summer anthem, "Chameleon" and recent triple attack of releases, "Into The Sky", "Young Melody" (with Vera Blue) and "Control Your Body", all appearing on the band's full-length album due November 10 via etcetc.
"Go Bang" stars acclaimed vocalist, Afro Soca choreographer and "Chameleon" collaborator, Kira Divine. An auditory and visual spectacular, the track is a house-driven staple for any euphoric occasion, coloured with the momentous and familiarly instant call of Kira's vocals. The visuals for "Go Bang" were co-directed by band member Nick Littlemore and award-winning duo Toby & Pete, prescribing a neon-lit feast of alternate worlds on a spinning axis, seeing Kira Divine dance her way through each to great effect.
Made up of Nick, Peter Mayes and Sam Littlemore, PNAU have grown their reputation for consistently delivering left-of-centre dance music to inspire generations to come. ARIA Award-winning record producer Sam Littlemore, joined last year as a permanent member, no doubt bringing a wealth of musical knowledge to the group, supported by his role as producer on their 2007 self-titled album.
Changa will be PNAU's first full length album since 2012's Good Morning To The Night, produced in collaboration with Sir Elton John and debuting at #1 in the U.K. album charts and in the Top 5 in Australia. Last year's spiritually anchored single "Chameleon", warmed crowds instantly, becoming a festival favourite and dance floor anthem as well as holding a #11 position in the 2016 triple jHottest 100. "Chameleon" has since had 28 million Spotify streams and received remix treatment from tastemaker DJs including LDRU, Crookers and Dom Dolla + Kormak. The track is currently nominated for Apple Music Song of the Year and Best Dance Release at this year's ARIA Awards. Meanwhile, their following three-track release arrived in time to kick off the summer festival season, ahead of PNAU headlining Listen Out festivals across the country.
With their highly awaited fifth studio album mere weeks away from release, the longstanding act continue their role as Australian dance music royalty, easing the anticipation with "Go Bang" , another instant favourite for soundtracking celebratory moments everywhere.
