Premiere: Before The King swagger out with attitude in their thumping new single ‘Fast Machine’.

We are very honoured to premiere the deliciously cool new track ‘Fast Machine’ from Sydney band Before The King. ‘Fast Machine’ is primed to the hilt and full of a zesty, cathartic swagger in the best traditions of a brand of rock’n’roll that veers towards the brazen and the cool.

There is detectable an Arctic Monkeys-flavoured tone: a louche, wry delivery with a cool, distant and observational lyrical style. This is underpinned by a thunderous pounding rhythm section and scuzzy, fuzzy, filthy guitars. Black leather jackets, arched eyebrows, a sneering look with a gold-plated irresponsible code of behaviour: these rock’n’roll icons weep from every pore.

Of the single, the band says:

‘Fast Machine’ is the first song we ever wrote together, and through four recording sessions and countless iterations, it has remained a staple of our live set.

And you can hear why: it is delectable garage rock of the most melodic and poised nature with a dash of grit and a hint of disdain. Bow down:

Just the kind of attitude you need in the current climes. ‘Fast Machine’ is out on Friday, 8 October 2021, and you can pre-order/save here.
