Adelaide band West Thebarton have signed to brand new label Domestic La La – which is helmed by Violent Soho’s James Tidswell.

Along with signing news, the band has shared a new single, ‘Bible Camp‘ via a video clip.

Directed by Aaron Schuppan (Cosmo Thundercat), the narrative video reflects the energy of the tune.

The song itself was inspired by a story Ray’s Mum told him about her uni days in Manila. He explains;

Two of the blokes used the camp as a retreat to meet up, as their extremely Catholic families wouldn’t ever accept them being with each other. Apparently one of their Dads wasn’t too happy when he was made aware and had come down there after finding out… My Mum, Dora saw the Dad kicking in the head of his son’s lover

The song imagines an alternative outcome; one where the lovers fall in love on camp, then spend the ensuing years dreaming of, and drawing enlightenment from their brief, sweet time together.

Watch it below.

Domestic La La is a brand new label spearheaded by James Tidswell, in partnership with Unified Music Group. Says Tidswell of the band,

West Thebarton are honest, real, and full of heart, the spirit and energy in their music literally jumps through the speakers and connects with me, giving me an emotion I didn’t know I was feeling and that’s about as good as it gets. I fucking LOVE them!

The single is available on a limited edition 7″ that can be pre-ordered [Here].

The band will head out on tour through December with Polish Club, play NYE On The Hill in Gippsland and join the Byron Bay Falls Festival line-up.
