It feels like there’s a lot of hype building around jazzy dreamers Great Gable at the moment. Amassing nearly 300K monthly listeners on Spotify, not to mention their previous single ‘Blur’ earning high rotation on triple j, the Perth quartet must be floating on cloud nine right now. Funnily enough, that’s exactly how we feel as we bliss out to their new jam ‘I Wonder’.
A lush combination of spacey vocals and warm guitars back by a big drum sound, the track fills your stomach with butterflies and your head with cosy nostalgia. Lyrically, it centres around those anxious moments in a budding relationship where you’re obsessing over those what-do-they-think-of-me moments. “The song is a snapshot of the first couple weeks of dating someone and not knowing how they feel,” lead singer and guitarist Alex Whiteman says of the track.
There’s an organic feel to the track which the band believe was partially due to their location at the time it was being created. “Recording at The Music Farm surrounded by nature definitely influenced the overall vibe of the album,” bassist Chris Bye says of the recording process. “Working with Alex Henriksson and Matt Corby was incredible, they are such legends. They helped us bring out the best in our songs and really inspired us,” drummer Callum Guy adds.
To celebrate the release of Tracing Faces, which you can pre-order here, Great Gable will be hitting the road in October. Cheek out the dates below and head here to suss yourself some tickets. We’ll be there for sure!
