Tora Releases New Song “Put Down Your Phone”
- Amsterdam-based Australian electro-pop band Tora will release third studio album “A Force Majeure” on September 3, 2021.
On August 27, The band released the final promotional single “Put Down Your Phone” from the album.
The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Christian Baur.
Frontman Jo Loewenthal said of the song, “The meaning is quite obvious as it's the song title, but this song focuses on the issue of tech addiction and how it is impacting us all on an exponentially destructive trajectory. Over time it's becoming more acceptable to prioritise the people on your phone above those around you in real life, this realisation hit me hard when I noticed that my ex and I would more often sit on the couch scrolling instead of being present with each other. I wanted to use this creative expression as a reality snap and a reminder to never forget what's most important for our wellbeing, here and now. I started writing the song as a joke that I would sing to people when they ignored me for their phones, eventually it turned into something serious and made its way into the studio during our recording sessions, before long the whole band had contributed to the track and we decided it felt right for the Tora album.”
Tora embarks on the US and UK/Europe with RÜFÜS DU SOL, Mansionair, Miami Horror, and Crooked Colours in November.
The tour kicks off at Rotown in Rotterdam on November 4, 2021.
