Favorite local band Tora is back with new music

ANOTHER Case is Northern Rivers band Tora's latest single.

A smooth and steel-tasting track, like the feeling of a spoon dipped in honey, the single is gaining traction at Triple J Unearthed and Triple J.

Sitting at over 20 million streams, and after playing Glastonbury and Splendour in the Grass, a national support slot with Rufus under their belt, and a run of their own sold shows, the Byron Bay electronic four-piece have announced their debut album Take A Rest.

Another Case is the second track released from the new album, set for release on June 9.

Inspired while touring Australia, Europe and North America, Tora wrote Take A Rest over a two year period in various locations around the globe before composing, recording, producing and mixing the album in their home studios in Byron Bay.

Tora took a novel approach to recording Take A Rest by incorporating organic sounds heard in guitarist Jai Piccone's garden, including the buzzing of flies, bamboo creaking in the wind and the scraping of cactuses with rakes.

Take A Rest was mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Andrei Eremin (Chet Faker, WAFIA, Hiatus Kaiyote).

The band have amassed a combined 20 million online streams from previous singles Poly Amor and Twice, plus their EPs Eat the Sun and the self-titled Tora.
