Retiree Return With A New Single

Sydney’s Retiree have returned with a second offering, ‘Jan‘, which premiered on Triple J and Clash Mag last week. Following on from their first single ‘Continental‘ released late last year, ‘Jan‘ features the band’s signature dreamy vocals and 80’s like drum beats. Whilst maintaining an air of tropical warmth the song’s vocals depict a story of loss.

Jan is a melancholy song in disguise. I started writing it on a train from Germany to Amsterdam on my way to my uncles funeral. The whole song is a sort of equal parts reflective, sad, and celebratory.” – Retiree

Contrasting the immersive, upbeat melody against the hidden emotional meaning see’s Retiree delve further into a sonic exploration of electronic-pop music.
