Body Type share playful new track ‘Free To Air’ and accompanying surreal video

It comes ahead of the Aussie quartet’s forthcoming ‘EP2’.

Fresh from wooing us at SXSW, Australia’s Body Type have shared the latest teaser from their forthcoming ‘EP2’ - due 3rd May via Partisan Records.

Lilting yet playful track ‘Free To Air’ tackles the subject of an old neighbour of the band.

“[His] life seemed to play out entirely in his lounge room in front of the TV, which he blasted day and night. My bedroom faced looking into his lounge room, so it was almost like we were waking up and watching the morning news together or having a TV dinner after work…it was definitely not that romantic in reality though,” says guitarist Annabel Blackman.

The accompanying video, meanwhile, features face-swapping, sausage fingers and guitars played with toes. Obviously!

Watch ‘Free To Air’ below and catch the band at one of their UK dates next month.
