One of Australia’s most loved musicians Pete Murray has announced a three-piece acoustic tour that will bring an intimate club show to Canberra.
The tour, supported by exciting newcomer Matthew Armitage, is on the back of Pete’s new single Heartbeats, a remix by ARIA-award winning Peter Mayes from PNAU.
The remix of Heartbeats is subtle and truly showcases Pete’s diversity as an artist. The understated percussion that percolates underneath the vocal propels the track from heartfelt ballad into edgy new territory for Pete Murray. Fans are sure to love this rework of Heartbeats just as much as the original.
Pete said he’s excited to try and do things a little differently these days. “This Heartbeats remix from Peter Mayes is a fun new thing for me and I’m stoked with how it came out,” Pete said.
The video for Heartbeats accurately reflects the song’s lyrical theme through an honest and affecting lens. Directed by Corey Donaldson (Alex L’Estrange, Swilo, Sundown Jury), the clip is propelled by a narrative that highlights the thrill of young love and the devastation that can ensue.
Filmed in Pete’s hometown of Byron Bay, the opening sequence of the headland is a recurring setting that powerfully and poignantly closes this stunningly evocative short film. It is moving, and beautiful, just as the song is.
2017 was a massive year for Pete, with his ARIA award-nominated album Camacho debuting at number three on the ARIA charts, and a packed-out 33 date album tour across Australia.
With more than one million album sales to his name, the quiet achiever of Australian music is committed to constantly growing as an artist and offering fans new and exciting material with each release.
