New Music From COLUMBUS

Share This:

In the wake of their triumphant return with Triple J high rotation single “Can’t Hide From What Hurts”, Australia’s favourite East coast trio Columbus share an exceptional follow-up – the gritty and driving new single “Out Of Time”.

Frontman Alex Moses explains the new release touches on anxiety and the concept of existence – something many know all too well, particularly in the current climate.

“’Out Of Time” is a song I wrote about my experience with the persistent background static of worry that fills our heads and often goes unnoticed”. he said. “It’s so easy to feel an overwhelming sense of dread or helplessness towards situations in our lives, let alone towards a global pandemic disease. “Out Of Time” is about my own personal realisation that worry and dread are shortening our lives, and we are all in fact – if we choose to be – running out of time.”

Since forming in early 2012, Australian rock-trio Columbus have been playing earnest and relatable ballads to audiences worldwide. With their humble roots in high-school Jazz band, founding members Alex Moses (vocals, guitar) and Daniel Seymour (Drums) released their ground-breaking Home Remedy EP in 2015, with lead single “Downsides of Being Honest” grabbing hearts and radio play, launching the band through Triple J Unearthed and on to the stage at Soundwave Festival.

Columbus’ debut LP Spring Forever peaked at 47 on the ARIA charts seeing them tour Australia with Birds Of Tokyo, The Ataris, You Me At Six & Trophy Eyes whilst also conquering festivals NYE On The Hill and UNIFY.

After capping off sold-out Australian shows on their final Spring Forever tour, their second LP A Hot Take On Heartbreak was released with critical acclaim, scoring 9/10 via Depth Magazine and 10/10 via Hysteria Magazine. Hot on the heels of the release, Columbus headed out on the road with William Ryan Key of US giants Yellowcard before completing an Australia-wide headline run.

With Lauren Guerrera joining the band on Bass in 2019, Columbus returned with the powerful single “Can’t Hide From What Hurts” – an honest and hopeful call to keep pushing forward through the tough times.

Receiving full rotation on Triple J and becoming one of the station’s most played tracks, Columbus toured the single around Australia with Young Lions, before smashing packed shows at UNIFY and Mountain Goat Valley Crawl festivals.

If early 2020 is any indicator, you’ll be hearing a lot more about your favourite power-trio this year.
