Retiree have just dropped their latest single and film clip ‘Another Day’ in the lead up to their much anticipated debut album ‘House or Home’.
The musical project of Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman and Marco Vella; Retiree have steadily congealed their broad influences into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music. From two releases, they’ve been described as “pared back 1980s comfort pop for all occasions” by NOISEY, having “a whole lot of criss-crossing rhythm” by The FADER and containing “swirling synth flourishes, languid wistful vocals and strutting drum machine funk” by The 405.
The album’s songs explore the theme of “house or home” and what that means in present day Australia for different people. They journey from an aboriginal tent embassy on the south coast of New South Wales, a retirement village, a one room flat in Ringwood and - for ‘Another Day’ - a sleepless 17 hour stop over in Malaysia.
“In the Another Day video we see Steve, the reoccurring protagonist in the trilogy of film clips we made for the album, in a dreamlike state. He traverses a surreal, timeless landscape, dancing solo, but full of emotion as if he’s thinking about his love”
- Joey Knox (Director)
Retiree have teamed up with director Joey Knox and cinematographer Jesse Gohier-Fleet to create a series of interconnected film clips. Unraveling an intricate web of stories, the visuals pair seamlessly with the songs.
