Songs hit the road this September in preparation for the release of their new radio single “Different Light”.
The four piece from Sydney have been busy playing with a who's who of internationals and locals over the last twelve months. They've shared the stage with Deerhunter, Adam Green, Beach House, The Bats and Australian friends like Love of Diagrams, St Helens and Witch Hats.
The band have also just finished recording their debut album with Casey Rice (Tortoise, Joan of Arc, Aleks and the Ramps, Ground Components) at Sydney's BJB Studios for release on Popfrenzy later in 2009.

"Songs seems at odds with lots of modern-day music. There are no weird Turkish instruments or ironic samples or looped beats; just guitars and drums and bass and straightforward vocals... like fellow southern hemisphere greats The Chills or the Go-betweens, Songs are doing everything right." 75 or Less Records
"Its the musical equivalent of a spring breeze through your record collection, but with a discernible substance. without knowing it when the pixies wrote 'here comes your man', they were trying to be songs." Time Out
