Critically acclaimed Australian guitarist Hamish Anderson is thrilled to announce the release of his powerful new single, "Late in the Evening," available for streaming and pre-save now. This track is the spearhead of his eagerly awaited album, ELECTRIC, set to electrify audiences later this year.

"Late in the Evening" is not just a song; it's a monumental rock experience. It serves as a passionate tribute to the electric guitar, with Hamish drawing inspiration from iconic figures like Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, while also channeling the contemporary vibe of bands like Arctic Monkeys. The song blends intense guitar leads and evocative riffs, creating a lush soundscape that echoes the halcyon days of rock music.

Hamish describes the single as a "big unapologetic heavy rock song," where he cranks up the fuzz pedal to lay down a groove that’s both seductive and commanding. The track, as Hamish notes, is akin to a cinematic exploration of desire and temptation, set against a backdrop of nocturnal mystique.

The single has already garnered high praise from industry icons and publications:

    Gary Clark Jr. exclaimed, "He’s the shit!"
    Billboard celebrated Hamish as a "singer, songwriter, and guitar hero."
    NPR Music predicted, "It’s an album for the ages."

Produced by Hamish and David Davis (The War on Drugs, Lauren Ruth Ward, Miguel), and recorded mostly live with his touring band, ELECTRIC promises to deliver a high-octane blend of '70s blues rock and modern soundscapes. The album features eleven original tracks and a cover, enriched with contributions from renowned musicians such as Jessy Green (Foo Fighters) on strings and Jerry Borge (Jonathan Wilson, Ziggy Marley) on keys.

Stream "Late in the Evening" now on SoundCloud or Pre-save the album ELECTRIC to be part of this groundbreaking musical journey.
