Depth Of Sound

Available Friday 9th August 2013

It was only ever a matter of time. Having spent the past few year building a reputation as one of this country’s finest live bands, Brisbane eight-piece tour de force DUBMARINE have hit the next level with their simply extraordinary new long player LASER SOUND BEAM.

The band’s second album, Laser Sound Beam finds them moving into new territory. Capturing the legendary energy of a Dubmarine live show, this collection of tracks finds them moving away from their roots in reggae, dub and dancehall and finding a whole new sound that is truly their own.

Easily their most powerful studio record to date, Laser Sound Beam is a synth and bass heavy, brass laden record that captures a band prepared to take music in a whole new direction. It’s big, it’s fun, and it’s something you have never heard before.

Recorded over the past 12 months, the album saw the band re-unite with long-time engineer and collaborator Paulie B, with ARIA winning producer Magoo brought in to add the finishing touches.

The album will be released in August 8 through digital indie SUGARRUSH Music with singles Beat in Control and Spearchukka setting the scene. Both tracks have been launched to warm reviews and airplay including Triple J and community radio across the country.

Laser Sound Beam is more than just a striking sonic landscape, it marks the emergence of D-Kazman as one truly irrepressible frontman.  More than a dancer, vocalist and writer he is an Indigenous man with something to say. Talking through the songs, he explains the album moves through many moods.

“The track Beat in Control was first written years ago when I was a dancer working every night at a club, but dreaming of being a vocalist talking about what its like to be in the dance, inside the music, which to me felt mystical…’Close your eyes and you can see the music clearly’, Explains it all to me.” Kaz says.

“With the song Pass it On, We want to promote cool vibes and big energy at our shows, and we want it to be infectious so we ask that everyone ‘pass on’ that positivity to us… and we’ll send it back to you with cool edgy moves that inspire.”

And his growing confidence as an artist finds him turning his attention to more powerful ideas, no more obvious than on the songs Bullyman and Cabinet Fever.

Bullyman is a look at black deaths in custody and the ‘intervention’ in the Northern Territory. The track also took some inspiration from fellow local band Powderfinger who were forced to take a song off their album because it might affect a (death in custody) trial at the time. They had to take it off their album, and that I felt was a breach of the right of freedom of speech,” he says.

“And Cabinet Fever? It seems like our Government is run by the multinationals, with the ousting of K Rudd and then the ousting of J Gillard. It feels as though there are payments happening under the table and people are paying billions to get their way. This is a take on that.”

 The new album comes at the end of a phenomenal year for the band that has seen them take their music to huge audiences around the country and the globe. Earlier this year the band played to more than 3000 people on the Beat in Control Single Tour before they headed off to perform at the International Jazz Festival in Capetown South Africa – that trip was just the latest in a long run of overseas sojourns that has included major shows and festivals everywhere from Europe to the Reunion Islands.

The release of Laser Sound Beam will be celebrated as the band hit the road for the remainder of 2013 kicking off with a run of venue shows and festival appearances including Brisbane’s BIGSOUND and the newly announced Boomerang Festival at Byron Bay.
