REMI drop stunning new track ‘Lose Sleep’, announce run of tour dates

REMI seem to be on one long victory lap, and they’re just keeping on running, with the release of their soulful new single ‘Lose Sleep’.

It features the London via Brisbane singer Jordan Rakei, who you might remember for his guest spot on Disclosure’s track ‘Masterpiece’.

REMI is now, or maybe always was, the group name for Remi and his collaborator Sensible J. They’re currently gearing up to release the highly anticipated record, Divas and Demons, out September 16 through their imprint House Of Beige.

They’re also going head out and play a bunch of tour dates in November and December, hitting up major cities and regional centres – get the low down on those dates below.

Of the track, and its important message, Remi says:

“Since our last record, a lot of young mixed race Aussie kids have come to me talking about how much they can relate to the racial struggle in our music. I don’t think that’s a good thing, but I’m proud that these kids feel a little less alone, because of some songs we didn’t think anyone would hear. It also became inspiration for me to continue opening up about my experience. Often you can feel like one crazy beige kid in a sea of ignorance shouting about equality. These kids helped change that for me.”
