Free Time formed in the summer of 2012 around Melbourne luminary Dion Nania(Panel of Judges). After moving to New York in 2011, Nania floated through theNYC music scene, playing on US tours for the likes of Twerps and Scott & Charlene’s Wedding.
Shortly thereafter he began writing new songs with the intent of putting a bandtogether. The debut Free Time album hit shelves in mid2013, with Dion’s NYC-based band playing with acclaimed artists Real Estate and The Babies. Theyhave since recorded another 7″ single, Esoteric Tizz, as well as working on the incredible videos for singles I Lost Again and Guess Work.
After beginning work on a followup record with their previous engineer, Jarvis Taveniere (Woods), Nania returned to Melbourne for a year. In true fashion, he immediately modelled an Australian lineup to complete the Free Time record, including Marty Frawley (Twerps), Zachary Schneider (Totally Mild) and Joe Alexander (Terrible Truths). The band have since completed the second LP, recording and mixing at John Lee’s Phaedra Studios.
Thus we are left with two bands on opposite sides of the globe, and a songwriter who bounces between continents almost as quickly. He tells of following love across the world, of being unsure of what the future holds, and his songwriting oscillates wildly between melodies of sweet sadness and anthems of wild exuberance.
Join the Australian band as they release a string of new singles and tour locally for the first half of 2016, after which Nania will bounce back across the globe to reunite with his US counterparts. And between all this, you ask the name of thenew record? The answer In Search of Free Time.
