Australian pop-powerhouse Sheppard release of their highly anticipated 3rd album Kaleidoscope Eyes
Australian pop hitmakers Sheppard have been gearing up throughout the Covid Lockdowns to launch their new album Kaleidoscope Eyes on February 26th after releasing an incredible twelve singles in twelve months.
Two years in the making, Kaleidoscope Eyes marks the multi-award winning band’s third full length release, and their first album since 2018’s ‘Watching The Sky’. It also marks a new, more confident side of Sheppard. Coming off of three back-to-back world tours, two albums, multiple awards and several years cooped up together in hotels and airport lounges, the band spent 2019 writing and recording and taking time to discover who they are now, as young adults with established careers, rather than a new band chasing accolades and seeking acceptance. No longer labelled purely as just the kid siblings that took the world by storm with Geronimo, the pressure of churning out hit singles had lifted and the realisation that they could live their lives for themselves became apparent for the first time in years.
The now core three-piece of founding members and siblings George, Amy and Emma prepare to release their third album they’re sounding more assured and effortless than ever, building anticipation as they drip-feed their irresistible, big-hearted pop into the world, one song at a time.
With stories of love, loss, heartbreak and happiness from all angles, the richly coloured tapestry of experiences, both ordinary and extraordinary, came together to form Kaleidoscope Eyes, a celebration of a tumultuous yet enriching couple of years, with music becoming the glue that held the band together.
Having been lucky enough to listen to the full album on repeat before its release, there are several tracks that have really jumped out at us here at GNI Magazine, that we predict will have the same impact as their biggest hit “Geronimo,”
Lead single off the album “MIA” and “Learning to fly” both scream festival bangers at the top of their voices and we predict that they will follow in the footsteps of “Geronimo” when it comes to festival season and radio airplay.
“Looking for Love” and “Solid Gold” hark to days of sunset BBQ’s, chilling out with friends and a cold beer on the beach, hopefully something we will be able to do this summer Covid situation allowing.
“Kaleidoscope Eyes is an album dedicated to the wonders of love, in every form. With love, the world is a more colourful place. Spread it, make it, give it, feel it, appreciate it, and do your best not to lose it.” said George Sheppard.
Boasting over 3 million listeners per month on Spotify, over 770 million streams across all platforms, a handful of #1’s and Top Ten hits in multiple countries around the world, Sheppard have already achieved more than most bands could dream of in their lifetime. And they’re only just getting started.
