“It’s a compilation of remixes from incredible friends, and some of our favourite artists from around the world, plus a couple of original tunes in the form of B Sides which didn’t make it on to the initial album. We’re very excited to release it, and to take the current album and these new B Sides to new places around the world as part of our touring cycle in 2020."
The original Can’t Buy The Mood album was primarily made in the Byron area, though the band also ventured into iconic studio spaces in LA, London and Amsterdam to work on the album. Largely written and produced by the band themselves, they also mixed and mastered all tracks, and did all the design and artwork, shared in the art direction of the music videos, 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.
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 150 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.
