"SIGNS" is the second single of Perth trio OPIA's debut album, due for release in 2015. OPIA's rich tones and multi-dimensional songs seem far larger than the sum of their parts. Signs is awash in delay-soaked guitars and the majestic upper-register of singer Mike Bok. Fronting the powerhouse rhythm section of bassist Dan Zarb and drummer Dain Pattison.
Signs is beautifully woven together and presented with such attention to detail and an impressive monument to what the band can accomplish. With two epic songs now released, Opia's debut album can't come soon enough.

It's a rare treat to hear a band that is unpredictable... a band that lands in a different place than where they took off. Found here releasing Signs - the second single from their forthcoming debut album - Perth trio Opia are such a band: progressive, in the truest sense; covering vast musical ground.
Expanding an established sound, Opia's rich tones and multi-dimensional songs seem far larger than the sum of their parts. Signs occupies the beautiful middle ground between a sing-along and a song you want to dance to.
Following on from successful debut single One Minute Ago, Signs marks considerable musical growth for Opia. One Minute Ago brought Opia to the Australian airwaves, earning them airplay on triple j, rage and unearthed, as well as the ever-supportive community radio stations across the country. Reviews of the single were unanimously positive, with triple j's Rosie Beaton describing the band's sound as “world class”. Taking this sound one step further still, Signs shows off even more of what Opia are capable of.
Boasting a stellar production team - Signs was recorded and engineered at Electric City Studios in North Fremantle by Adam Round, mixed and mastered by legend Forrester Savell, and co-produced by The A&R Department's own Matt O'Connor and Lance Robinson, Signs is beautifully woven together and presented with such attention to detail. Genuine and creative, Opia are in a continuous state of evolution, and Signs is an impressive monument to what the band can accomplish. With two epic songs now released, Opia's debut album can't come soon enough.
“Signs” by OPIA will be released 20th February 2015
