Debut Album ‘Colour Wheel’ Release

“I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve played in many bands, recorded many albums, hit the skins,
banged a guitar, written songs, sung bv’s, loaded vans, boarded planes, lost luggage and lost
and found my mind. But I’ve never done my own thing. And I’ve always wanted to do my own
thing. So now I am.”
Kit Warhurst is best known as the drummer in seminal Australian group Rocket Science, but
after the release of singles Nothing In Melbourne and Rose Red City, is now a solo artist in his
own right.

His debut solo album, Colour Wheel, was recorded in Melbourne. Kit both produced and played
all the instruments on the record, capturing them in only one or two takes. The result is an
album that has all the electricity, chemistry and biting authenticity of a band playing together in a
room. The album was mixed by Jeremy Glover (Julian Casablancas &The Voidz, Crystal
Castles, Liars, The Devastations) in Berlin.

The title, Colour Wheel, comes from the album track of the same name. The song is a note to
self to not get entrenched in the every day routines, and instead revel in making art and music.

The album is this idea writ large. Kit began this project as a personal challenge; in order to
produce, he had to shut out the distractions and pressures of daily life to get back to the
simplicity of making music. He wanted to create an existence with a full colour palette and spin
his music making his own way. And somewhere along the way, he hit the jackpot.

The result is an album drenched in irresistible melody, power pop choruses and ’70s garage
guitars, all propelled by Kit’s astute songwriting. It is also an honest, raw, sometimes
heartbreaking, occasionally brutal, sometimes beautiful record.

In terms of Kit’s musical growth, Colour Wheel completes his picture.

Kit launches “Colour Wheel” on Saturday the 1st of April at Easey Street Concert Hall in
Collingwood with his band featuring Brooke Penrose on drums and Alex Gray on bass, with
special guest Kate Alexander.

Oliver Never knew Sunshine

‘Oliver Never Knew Sunshine’ Single Release

Kit Warhurst’s first two singles filled the airwaves via Triple R, PBS and Double J, and now he’s back with
his third song from his soon to be released solo album. Oliver Never Knew Sunshine is a slice of wonderful
guitar pop that belies its dark lyrical heart.

Oliver’s tale is a common one. To others, Oliver chooses the wrong path, makes bad decisions and will
never feel the sweet sunshine of success he craves. Little do they know it’s the assumption that their own
way of life is best for others, that quashes the dreams, creativity and spark of the Olivers of this world.
But this song is a celebration of Oliver’s growth. When Oliver stops listening to the judgement of others, he
will succeed, and finally bask in the sun’s glorious warmth.

And then, much to the naysayers’ disbelief, he will be just fine.

Oliver Never Knew Sunshine is released on Sunshine Club Records in support of his Debut Album Colour
Wheel.
