It's been some time since Art vs Science have released new material but finally the Aussie three-piece are back with a brand new single, 'Create/Destroy'.
'It's about a faltering relationship, and the myriad questions the mind throws out and the crumbling footholds to which it clings as it falls into an unknown conclusion'- says Dan Mac. 'Create/Destroy' is out 21 Feb 2014 via the band's own imprint Magellanic/MGM. Listen to it below:
Widely acknowledged to be one of Australia's most enthralling and popular live acts, AvS' accolades are many: two platinum and gold EPs; a #2 and #9 in triple J's Hottest 100 (for Parlez-Vous Francais? and Magic Fountain); a J Award nom and an ARIA award for their debut album The Experiment, which charted at #2 in its week of release.
The band has been kept busy in recent times with multiple US tours (including Bonnaroo and Governors Ball festival slots); a well-received side project, and 'inspiration gathering and research' from around the world.
In April, the guys will set out on a run of dates across Australia that will see them debut a brand new live show. Don’t miss them.

The best thing about Jim Finn being hooked up to a dialysis machine for six weeks was this: time. Time to finish a collection of ideas that would become the Sydney musician’s solo venture. As a member of psych-dance world-beaters Art vs Science, spare time isn’t something Finn has a lot of. So when news
