Melbourne band The Engagement are back with a timely single ‘Heaven So Close’, an uplifting anthem about enduring and overcoming obstacles during hard times. Triple J called it “a poppy sugar hit to meet your cravings.”
In collaboration with NYC based producer Brent Kolatalo – who has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry – the band have managed to capture all the qualities of the catchy and meaningful electro-pop that has allowed their previous singles to garner close to a million streams on Spotify.
To celebrate the release, the band will headline at ‘The Espy’ on Friday, September 17th along with a Regional Victoria tour later this year.
‘Heaven So Close’ is now available worldwide on all streaming platforms followed by a debut EP in 2022.
Triple J say “They can clearly put together the hooks and glitz.” Fox FM labelled them “a cool 80s/retro sound” and Triple M called them “fantastic.” The Engagement deliver independent music with a stadium sound drawing influence from the likes of Imagine Dragons, Coldplay and Bastille.
Their songs combine earnest storytelling and big hooky melodies to create their own brand of electro-pop that has gained them close to a million streams on Spotify.
They’ve performed to audiences in Melbourne and across Australia, including shows at St Kilda’s Oktoberfest, and residencies at Luna Park.
With a number of independent singles under their belts (In The End, Another Year and Heaven So Close), they continue to evolve their sound and engage with a growing fanbase both online and at shows.
The band are excited to showcase new material to Melbourne and regional Victoria in 2021.
