FISHER Unleashes 'Freaks' EP & New Single 'Wanna Go Dancin'
1 Apr 2020
+ Announces New Dates For Australian Headline Tour
Following last week’s release of “Freaks,” the title track from his new EP, FISHER today drops another irresistible anthem, “Wanna Go Dancin.” With its indelible refrain – “my feet wanna go dancing” – the track captures the collective yearning for the day we can all be back in the clubs.
“Wanna Go Dancin” is the second track on the GRAMMY®-nominated DJ/producer’s new EP, Freaks, which was released today by Catch & Release / etcetc and comes in line with FISHER announcing the rescheduled dates for his first ever headline tour on Australian soil, FISHER’s Australian Beach Party Tour. The show will go on later in 2020, hitting the shores of St Kilda, Fremantle, Wollongong and Brisbane, from Saturday, November 28 to Sunday, December 6.
Placing “Freaks” at the top of the list of last week’s Best New Dance Tracks, Billboard said, “the darkly thumping tech house anthem ‘Freaks’…[is] undeniable in its body-moving effect.” DJ Times predicted, “FISHER looks to dominate the summer once again.” Dancing Astronaut observed, “FISHER’s cheeky nature is kept intact through the infectious, repeating vocal line, ‘Shoes come off and the freaks come out,’ as the track marks itself as an impeccable select for future peak-time festival sets.” This Song is Sick hailed “Freaks” as “a weapon with a relentless bass line and an explosive drop.”
Raised on Australia’s Gold Coast, FISHER became a sponsored pro surfer at age 16 and travelled the world. In recent years, he turned his DJing hobby into a massively successful career. His first two releases, Ya Kidding and his Oi Oi EP, were released on the famed Dirtybird Records.
“Losing It” and “You Little Beauty” – released jointly by FISHER’s own Catch & Release label and etcetc in Australia & New Zealand – each claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. Earning a GRAMMY nomination for Best Dance Recording, “Losing It” was the biggest club record of 2018. “Losing It” also placed #2 in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2018 and picked up an ARIA Award nomination for Best Dance Release.
Billboard said, “Australian mad man Fisher has yet to bust on his mission for grooves…Each tune is bassier and funkier than the last.” To date, FISHER has amassed over 400 million combined global streams. Check out his recent two-hour Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 HERE.
