Well on their way to joining the growing ranks of successful Australian musical exports, All Mankind have spent the last three years creating a global ripple which is fast turning into a whopping great big wave, and it’s about to hit British and Irish shores.2009’s Puzzles EP, produced by ARIA-winning producer David Nicholas (Elton John, Sting) and Peter Mayes (PNAU, Empire of the Sun), sprang up on radio stations internationally, from Indie 103.1FM Los Angeles to WRXP New York to MotorFM Germany, picking up XFM’s musical director, Mike Walsh as a fan in the UK.
“Break The Spell” is the first single, released on SO Records, to be taken from the Sydney quartet’s debut LP, “Simple Desire”. Produced by Mike Crossley (Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight, The Kooks, Foals) at The Motor Museum studios in Liverpool, there’s an epic shimmer to the track that recalls the UK–originated, world-conquering success of Keane and Coldplay.
