Breakout Australian 4-piece, Spacey Jane, today share their new album, Here Comes Everybody, as well as a heartfelt BTS lyric video for a final single released earlier this week, “Pulling Through”.On the heels of their first time touring the UK, the band is gearing up for a headline Australian run before making their North American debut this October with already sold-out dates in NYC, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, and more. LISTEN/WATCH “PULLING THROUGH” HERE + LISTEN TO HERE COMES EVERYBODY HERE

The title Here Comes Everybody is a nod to Wilco’s beloved album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. It was the working title for the record, and Jeff Tweedy himself wrote to the band with his blessing to borrow the phrase. Frontman Harper says he wants this album to be, “for youth persevering and thriving emotionally under the weight of our generational burden,” citing COVID and climate change as two things trying to hold young people back. With songs written across 2020, the band then held sessions where they are from in Western Australia with Dave Parkin as well cross country in Brisbane with Konstantin Kersting (Mallrat, The Jungle Giants, Genesis Owusu).

The poignant new ballad “Pulling Through” and the accompanying lyric video offers fly on the wall insight to their enduring friendship and life on the road. “This song is for a friend who lost a loved one. I didn’t really know what to say at the time except for ‘I’m sorry and I hope you’re ok’ so putting it in a song made it easier. I think it’s hard to not feel cheesy or tokenistic when you’re trying to support someone through grief but I feel like, through this song, I could say it exactly how I wanted to,” says frontman Caleb Harper of the song.

The record is spacious, with the heaviness of Harper’s lyrics lifted to weightlessness with the relentlessly upbeat indie rock arrangement from Ashton Hardman-Le Cornu (guitar), Peppa Lane (bass), and Kieran Lama (drums). It’s impossible to mistake any of the tracks on this album for anything other than Spacey Jane – a wholly singular, jangly, summery, yearning, joyous sound. 

Frontman Caleb Harper says, Here Comes Everybody has a sort of surety/triumph to it but is also daunting if you look at it the wrong way i.e. everyone expects so much but can’t tell you what it is they actually expect.  I like the idea of the juxtaposing meanings you can find in it.  Lyrically the album is diverging down those two outlooks, there is still vulnerability in feelings of hope and resolve.  It’s not realistic to expect anyone, especially young people in this time, to be brazenly confident and it’s often in addressing fears and insecurities that we’re able to find confidence and purpose.”

Here Comes Everybody sounds and feels like an album that has truly been lived in. Whether it’s on the sprightly indie-pop of single ‘Lunchtime’, the aching ballad ‘It’s Been A Long Day’ or the atmospheric ‘Not What You Paid For’, every note is imbued with hard-earned wisdom now being passed down to a new generation. “You shouldn’t have to pretend that you’re in control or have it figured out when you’re 18,” Caleb says of ‘Bothers Me’, a glistening album highlight that reflects on the process of leaving school and realizing your whole life is ahead of you. “Anyone who says otherwise can get fucked.”
