SHARE SUMMER REMIX OF “IN THIS MOMENT” AND ANNOUNCE REMIX EP
‘RELIGHT’ WILL BE AVAILABLE FRIDAY APRIL 23
Melbourne alternative rock five-piece Reside have revisited the past and are breathing new life into “In This Moment” with a brand new Summer Remix – marking the first from a collection of Reside favourites that have been reimagined to find a home on upcoming EP, ‘Relight’, out Friday April 23.
The single brings an upbeat, summer vibe to a previously melancholic track and made its radio debut on triple j Unearthed Tops on Monday night. Dave Ruby Howe reviewed with: “Reside tinkering under the hood of their old tracks and ‘suping this puppy up into a shiny emo banger”
After testing out new sounds and taking a more stripped back approach to their live performance, the demand for a full remix release was hard to ignore. Frontman Liam Guinane explains, “The summer remix of this song came about last year when we were in lockdown. I couldn’t imagine playing heavier songs to a seated crowd so I started thinking about arrangements that would work for an audience in any context.
“Thankfully when we did get an opportunity to play these versions supporting Stuck Out, we had lots of people request we put them out officially. What’s been produced for both this EP and our new music covers all bases and certainly feels like the most authentic music we’ve put out to date.”
This track comes one week before the bands Melbourne headline shows at Northcote Social Club on Saturday March 13 supported by The Rollercanes and Wifecult. Due to popular demand and a sold out late show, an evening show has been added – tickets available through Eventbrite.
Reside formed in 2017 with the longstanding original lineup of vocalist Liam Guinane, guitarists Ariel Johnson and Will Eggleton, bassist Sale Brown and drummer Dylan Houston. Reside turned heads in 2019 with sophomore EP ‘The Light That You Saw’, which made its way to the ears of hundreds of thousands of listeners, leading with “In This Moment” which received high praise from triple j and was added to Spotify playlists New Music Friday AU + NZ and Rock Out.
Reside sold out their EP launch show at Melbourne’s Cherry Bar late 2019 and welcomed 2020 atop the main stage at UNIFY Gathering after winning the triple j Unearthed opener competition, joining the line up alongside hardcore legends The Ghost Inside, metalcore heavyweights Architects and Australian favourites in Northlane, Polaris and more.
2020 welcomed a standalone single, “Fallen”, which premiered at Pilerats who highlighted that the single “[continues] to emphasise this grand and somewhat cinematic take on emo-rock that’s become really unique to Reside”. Hysteria Mag coined it a “rocking anthemic track”, Music Feeds weighed in with: “This is arena-sized emo rock… think Angels And Airwaves meets Bring Me The Horizon”, triple j’s Richard Kingsmill reviewed with a four star “Houston, we have lift off” and Tone Deaf affirmed that Reside have “proven to be a real force to be reckoned with”.
Reside’s reimagined single “In This Moment” (Summer Remix) is out now to stream and purchase. ‘Relight’ will be available Friday April 23.
