Wichita Recordings are delighted to announce the signing of Australian band The Goon Sax. The teen trio marry sublime indiepop with brilliantly human and brutally honest vignettes of adolescent angst delivered with personality, charm and heart-wrenching wonder. They will be heading to Europe for shows at the end of May, including dates supporting Frankie Cosmos, with a date at Gorilla in Manchester on 28 May as well as their own headline show at London’s Sebright Arms on 29 May.
The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane. Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC 6Music, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned them rave reviews from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. According to Metacritic, Up To Anything was the 8th best-reviewed debut album anywhere in the world in 2016.
