SHANGRILA - Share New Song "Lift Me Up" and Announce New EP "Analog Youth"

Perth alt rock outfit Shangrila are today sharing their brand new single and video, "Lift Me Up", in preparation for their next EP release entitled 'Analog Youth', due to drop Friday August 27. 

The track radio premiered at triple j's Short. Fast. Loud on Wednesday night and KillYourStereo hosted an exclusive video premiere yesterday, highlighting the premise behind the song. A coming of age track exploring different facets of life as we grow older and discover who we are, "Lift Me Up" explores what we stand for and the impact of our decisions and actions on others.

Vocalist Devyn Jupp explains, "once you enter your 20’s you start to experience the world differently, everything becomes a lot more real. Things you might have been lucky enough to avoid in your younger years like heartbreak, deaths of friends or family and mental health all tend to expose themselves throughout this time in your life."

Produced, mixed and mastered by Shane Edwards of Karma Sound Studios (Trophy Eyes, Hellions) with additional engineering and production by Cody Brooks, "Lift Me Up" is the first from upcoming sophomore EP, 'Analog Youth' out August 27. To celebrate the release, Shangrila will launch their new single live at Amplifier Bar on Saturday July 10 with supports Pot Plant House Party, Scream Mountain and Reins. Tickets available via Oztix.

Shangrila is Devyn Jupp (vocals), Jackson Macleod (guitars) and Dan Harper. With a band history stretching back almost a decade, the evolution of Shangrila is one that has been constant and ever intriguing. The release of their debut EP 'Love and Leaving' and subsequent headline dates and shows supporting the likes of Trophy Eyes and Gyroscope proved the perfect introduction to the band’s new sonic path, one that was well-released by industry and their fans alike.

Last year Shangrila received their second Western Australian Music (WAM) song of the year nomination for "Fadeaway". "Happy" made its entrance early 2020 and is close to clocking 400,000 on Spotify. Cut from the same WA cloth as the likes of Karnivool and Tired Lion, Shangrila now find themselves occupying space in the same arena as Trophy Eyes, Slowly Slowly and Alexisonfire. One driven by raw emotion and an impulsive and addictive musical delivery.

The band is excited to grab hold of the future and are eager to get back on stage to share their music with the whole of Australia. They feel that they are finally creating and performing music that represents who they are as a band.

"Lift Me Up" is available everywhere now. 'Analog Youth' will be available Friday August 27.
