Press Release :
"Community Service Announcement" is the debut single from the sensational Australian singer Kylie Auldist on Tru Thoughts. You might already be familiar with her distinctive and powerfully soulful voice though, from her contribution to recent releases by The Bamboos. On their latest single "I Don't Wanna Stop" Kylie provided the summery, fresh and funky vocal that characterised the track.

From the first snare roll, "Community Service Announcement" is sprinkled with that same characteristically uplifting, sun-soaked soul vibe. The combination of Kylie's breathtaking voice and production from label-mate Lance Ferguson (Lanu/The Bamboos) is red hot, with backing vocals that feel like a blissful breeze and a catchy, funky hook from the brass section.

The B side is "Cut You Loose," a pure funk track, introducing the fiery side to Kylie's songwriting and showcasing her power and versatility as a singer. As the title infers, a gentleman friend is being kicked to the kerb for being 'no use', and judging by the delectably steely edge to Kylie's voice, the wise money's on him not putting up much of a fight. The punchy intro gets straight in there, grabs you by the lapels and pulls you to your feet and this track doesn't let go until it ends - in the way that all great funk should - abruptly and leaving you wanting more.

Kylie Auldist possesses an undeniable natural vocal talent and has been singing from the moment she could talk. She performed for years with a variety of funk bands in Melbourne and played stacks of gigs, festivals and also TV appearances. She then joined The Bamboos, touring Australia and landing on the fair shores of Brighton, UK, in 2007, where Tru Thoughts - having already heard her beautifully soulful delivery on The Bamboos' acclaimed album 'Rawville' - finally snapped her up after witnessing her spectacular and charismatic live performance.

Look out for Kylie Auldist's solo album "Just Say" which will be released on Tru Thoughts on 26th May 2008.
