Released via Liberator Music (part of The Mushroom Group, which is home to artists including DMA’S, Vance Joy, Childish Gambino, Wolf Alice and more), new album Red Sun Titans (out 9th June) is the sound of a band reborn – harnessing the energy and inspiration of their past but with a bold and fiercely independent vision for the future. It’s an album “caught in between two worlds,” as frontman Felix Bushe puts it – a colourful celebration where you’ve come from, and dreaming of where you could go from here.
Red Sun Titans will mark the band’s first full length release since Sanctuary  and sets Gengahr on an exciting new trajectory. Having passed through the happy-to-be-here phase of debut album A Dream Outside  and traversed the baggage of adversity and tragedy that underpinned Where Wildness Grows  and Sanctuary, Red Sun Titans sees the band wrestle free from those energies to set sail anew.
Entering the studio with Matt Glasbey (alt-J, Coldplay) producing and mixing – with executive production by Charlie Andrew (Wolf Alice, London Grammar, Bloc Party, all three alt-J albums) – the band saw a chance to revisit the origins of where their creativity came from. The album developed out of self-analysis and resultingly is one of two distinct sides: one a naive counterpart longing to exist in a simpler state, and another about checking your ego and coming to terms with great loss. Red Sun Titans sits at that crossroads where the past is still in view and to be learned from, but the future is there for the taking. It’s the ambitious, unrestrained and widescreen statement Gengahr have always threatened to make.
To mark the announcement, the band have also shared a new single titled ‘In The Moment’. A sleek and groove-heavy taste of the band’s new material, the single toys with spacious indie-pop instrumentation that carries a subtle funk inflection propping up Bushe’s hook-heavy vocal lines.
Speaking on the single, Bushe says, “‘In The Moment’ reflects upon the necessity to break away from our daily routine and create meaningful memories. As much as sunny days and laughter with friends, ‘In The Moment’ celebrates the late hours without inhibition, where dreams lead and tomorrow lingers.”
The single is also accompanied video shot on location in Mallorca using just one iPhone and featuring two of Bushe’s childhood friends – Billy (director) and Casper (stylist and location scout). The video was entirely improvised by the trio and features a backdrop salvaged from a Gucci campaign that Casper worked on, with Bushe wearing a suit that was tailor made for Brad Pitt in the feature film ‘The Councillor’.
