Since their formation, whatever genre norms, boundaries, and regulations thrust upon Perth, Australia’s Voyager have been smashed. They embrace, if not brandish pop; employ a keytar on stage, and bring forward a positive, if not uplifting feeling to their music, running head-first into the endless parade of heavy bands who see the world in a different light. Voyager simply prefers to see the bright side of things.
Voyager have just unleashed a music video for their track ”Runaway” that saw airtime on Eurovision – ‘Australia Decides’. The track was shortlisted and paid tribute to on the Television show that aired on 8th February in association with APRA/AMCOS.
Danny Estrin explained in an interview on AusDecides that “Runaway” is about his keytar. He embellishes on this and says:
“Both my keytars and I were born in the ’80s. There’s something about this generation that has carried through my musical influences (and love for cars) and is pretty evident in the material Voyager are writing today. Being in a band is a journey in itself, and my personal journey has always seen my keytars accompany me all around the world (sometimes in less than mint condition). It was only fitting that we pay a tribute to such an integral part of Voyager’s sound and image in our video for ‘Runaway’, and we hope our fans continue to follow us and be a part of our history, and our future.”
Following the successful release of Colours in the Sun, which saw a chart debut of #1 in the AIR charts, and highlighted as The Music’s ‘Album of the Week’, Voyager have now announced a run of Australian headline shows.
The band will be bringing Colours in the Sun to the stage with shows in Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. Presale tickets for fans go live on wednesday 26th february from oztix.com.au
