Brisbane-Meanjin 3 -piece led by Adele Pickvance, Adele & The Chandeliers return with their mantra chanting new single ‘Up There For Thinking.' With the classic sounds of bass, drums, guitar, lots of cowbell, organ and saxophone. It's their first offering from their impending second release, a 4 song EP, 'Still Thinking,' due early next year.

More cowbell you ask? Cabasa? Bongos??
Adele's circular tight bass groove and organ slide you into the song. Scott's tinged Tom Verlaine guitar interplays with the bass and Jonny's smooth, circular drum patterns.
Add the percussion and behold, with all that combined, it's like you're being sucked in by a snake charmer, where you'll find yourself also chanting this mantra by the end of your first listen.

You'll think twice before you ask them to your party!


Up there for thinking
Down there for dancing
Sideways for glancing
My way, my way.
