Australian singer Eves Karydas today releases her new single, ‘Couch’, a rollicking synth-pop number with more than a passing nod to 1980s new wave pop.
‘Couch’ follows on from the previous singles 'There For You' and 'Further Than The Planes Fly' and is another step into the realm of pure pop from the former Brisbane indie-act. Karydas' stunning new direction has quickly found a following which her songs achieving over 4.7 million streams worldwide.
This current run of hits has been inspired by Karydas' recent relocation to London, which she credits for helping her mature as a person, as well as discover a new-found sense-of-self in her music.
'Couch' was co-written with Sam Dixon (Adele, Christina Aguilera, Sia) and produced by Karydas, Sam Dixon, her long-time collaborator Chris Zane (Passion Pit, Bat For Lashes) as well as friend and Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa.
“'Couch' is about a small intimate moment with someone, and how that can make you feel volumes,” says Karydas. “I wrote it when I moved into my first flat in London. I was suddenly feeling more ambitious and empowered than I'd ever felt in my life. That's what this song is about at its core: confidence in yourself.”
Her time abroad since 2015 has seen Karydas craft over 50 songs, the cream of which have been skimmed for her forthcoming debut album, which is to be scheduled for release later this year.
Eves Karydas, is also set to perform at The Great Escape (UK) this weekend, where she will join fellow Australian acts among the likes of Alex The Astronaut, Alexander Briggs, Hatchie, Olympia and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever as well as a raft of rising global talent.
Karydas also announces today that she will be embarking on a headline tour across Australia's east coast. The tour kicks off in Brisbane at The Foundry on August 9 before heading to Sydney and Melbourne with special guests to be announce. She will also be performing at this year’s epic, sold-out Splendour In The Grass Festival, alongside the likes of Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, MGMT and Girl Talk, plus the brand-new Adelaide event, Spin Off Festival as well as River Sessions Mackay.
