Tijuana Cartel

Tijuana Cartel, the renowned Australian musical collective celebrated for their pioneering fusion of diverse genres, proudly presents their latest masterpiece, Alectura. This innovative album once again showcases the band’s expertise in blending organic house and melodic house with captivating rhythms, beats, and global influences.

For the key creative forces behind the band, Paul George and Carey O’Sullivan Alectura serves as a testament to their profound musical connection and shared vision. Their collaboration has flourished over time, and this maturity resonates throughout every note of the album.

Guitarist and lead vocalist Paul George reflects on the creative process saying that the creation of Alectura has been a captivating journey. 

Carey O’Sullivan, the man behind beats, keys and the stunning visuals that accompany their live show says that working with Paul on Alectura has been a truly enriching experience. ‘Our co-writing relationship has evolved remarkably, allowing us to explore new creative territories, experiment with new sounds, and compose an album that reflects our musical ethos.’

 Alectura offers an immersive experience, inviting listeners to lose themselves in its exceptional sonic landscapes, whether amidst a pulsating dancefloor, or in the tranquillity of their own space, ensnared by the intricacy of the album’s layers.

O’Sullivan says that as an album, Alectura caters to both those who seek to dance and those who yearn to drift away. ‘You can surrender yourself to the beat or you can get lost in your headphones, letting the music carry you away. It’s designed to cater to every mood and moment.’

Tijuana Cartel eagerly awaits the response to Alectura from their devoted fans and the broader music community. ‘We can’t wait to share this album that epitomises our extraordinary musical journey.’ 

‘We hope that our fans will connect with it – and the journey we’ve had the past couple of years creating it – as deeply as we have,’ says George.

Alectura is available on all major streaming and purchase platforms now. See Tijuana Cartel perform the Alectura tour on Saturday, 16 September at The Northern.
