Two years on from their debut album release, today Tora reveal their second offering Can't BuyThe Mood. The 13-track album features already released singles 'Similar', 'Paramount', 'Can't Buy The Mood', 'Morphine', 'Tiger', and 'Deviate'. The album will be followed by headline shows down the East Coast in September and October where the band's dynamic live show will showcase the album in all its light.
Whilst Can't Buy The Mood was primarily made in the Byron area, the band also ventured into iconic studio spaces in LA, London and Amsterdam to work on the album. Completely written and produced by the band themselves, they also did all the design and artwork, completing an artistic vision which was key to the holistic experience of the album. With field recordings once again a key feature, the album is 13 tracks full of lush grooves and intricate moments.
To go along with the album release, today the band are sharing the captivating video for 'Mother Forgot' which was filmed during their recent stay in Berlin.
Says Director Christian Baur of the video: "There's this undeniable sexiness in 'Mother Forgot' and I wanted to celebrate it - with a video that shows Tora's excellent performance skills, but also how "Mother Forgot" simply creates this forceful energy between two people."
The band have just returned from Europe where they gave overseas audiences a sneak preview of the album at their shows in London (sold out), Amsterdam (sold out), Berlin and at Sacred Ground Festival.
Since release, tracks from their much-lauded debut album Take A Rest have received support from respected members of the international music community. Following a coveted album packet spot on triple j and high rotation for single 'Another Case', both Sir Elton John (Beats 1) and Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1) spun tracks on their radio programs and they've now clocked nearly 100 million streams globally - a massive achievement. Tora toured nationally and around the UK/Europe with over 40 album tour shows and sold out sets in Melbourne, Paris and London. They supported Oh Wonder nationally and even found an adoring fan in Resident Evil and Fifth Element star Milla Jovovich. All of this on top of previous spots at Glastonbury, Splendour in the Grass, Reeperbahn (DE), The Great Escape (UK), Best Kept Secret (NL) and over 70 more festival appearances across the globe. It's been a size-able couple of years for these four Byron Bay locals.
