The 80’s inspired indie-pop of Selaphonic’s ‘Had Our Heaven’ will give you those much-needed summer vibes well into winter.

‘Had Our Heaven’ is the lead track lifted from their forthcoming and debut EP ‘Therapy’ and has that ultimate signature anthemic stadium-pop sound.

The track is laden with gleaming with synth hooks, infectious lead guitar licks which is complimented by a clean background rhythm. Frontman, Jamie Coyle adds flair to the track with his catchy yet relatable sing-a-long melodies.

The accompanying music video perfectly suits the sound and vibe of the song capturing the days of the old 90’s VHS camera, walk-mans and being completely unaware of the entrapping of social media. The video is far from boring featuring real-home videos from the bands youth’s and memories of their childhoods.

For those who haven’t heard of Selaphonic, they are a Sunshine Coast based indie-pop quartet with a sound resembling Miami Horror, Bag Raiders or even Client Liaison.

The band have already released a slew of noteworthy singles which have been acknowledged across media platforms such as Acid Stag, Pile Rats, Triple J Unearthed, MTV, Tone Deaf and The Music.

Since inception in 2011, the band has toured extensively across local live music venues, DIY backyard shows and globally, including performances for festivals Culture Collide, CMJ and Canadian Music Week.

 

To celebrate the release of the debut EP ‘Therapy’ the band has announced five shows spanning across the East Coast, kicking off in April.
