This week's feature album The Old World is the fourth studio album from Melbourne's 7-piece heavy groove combo The Seven Ups.

Inspired by the catastrophic year that was 2020, the band's recording sessions were rescheduled three times due to extended Melbourne lock downs, before finally being recorded in November 2020. The album’s title, The Old World, refers to life before the onset of the pandemic which shattered 21st century humanity’s sense of stability and invincibility. Arcing back to the simplicities and blissful ignorance that existed before the grim onset of empty supermarket shelves, deserted streets and a world locked down.

The album takes listeners on a genre spanning journey kicking off with psychedelic-soul lament 'Death of the Old Gods' before sliding into double dancefloor-fillers 'Hold Fast to the Void' and 'Abode of the Clouds'. They close on a 12 minute spiritual-jazz number which is also the title track to the album.

You might even hear sprinkles of Afrobeat, free-jazz, stoner-doom and more.

Out now via Northside Records, order yourself a copy of the limited edition night sky marbled vinyl before they are all snapped up!
