It’s been a massive few months for Brisbane indie rockers Tape/Off since they released their acclaimed second album Broadcast Park in August, and now they’re keeping the ball rolling with the album’s third single Vigorous Lover and a national tour to celebrate!

The tour comes courtesy of the band’s new booking agency PS Music Group who they signed with following a whirlwind few days at BIGSOUND in September, where Tape/Off made a massive impression – and many critics’ lists of festival buzz bands – with their incendiary and unrelenting live show.

Now after the buzzsaw intensity of Broadcast Park’s first two well-received singles Day In, Day Out and Wake In Fright, new radio tune Vigorous Lover shows a more vulnerable side to the four-piece as they tackle the complexity of the Australian male psyche head on. An approach that at first seems played for laughs soon drips with pathos as our country’s gender expectations are analysed and subverted, a remarkable depth and nuance on display behind the track’s meandering melody and generous abundance of hooks.

All throughout their career Tape/Off have relied on the quality of their vision and craftsmanship rather than staid predictability so this empathetic left-turn should be of no surprise to people paying attention, but whether old fans or new now is the time to rally behind Tape/Off as they take their intoxicating introspection to the rest of the country to farewell the impending southern summer with shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Wollongong, Toowoomba and Brisbane. Get vigorous!
