We are very honoured to premiere the new single ‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’ from Turpentine Babycino: an honest, raw and attitude-filled piece of post punk coolness. The epic sneery delivery, disassociated and wry, provides a post punk insouciance over driving barbed-wire guitars and pounding rhythms – the louche Australian drawl providing veracity and immediacy befitting the title of the song. Indeed, inherent in the whole package is that element of self-deprecating humour often found in antipodean indie fare.
The band says of the track:
‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’ is about the aftermath of a break-up. Big parties, loud music, long nights and writing shitty break-up songs are often on the cards to help ‘forget’ about an ex. As a song-writer it’s easy to dismiss a great song due to self doubt and judgment and after a break-up, these insecurities are heightened. ‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’ is that shitty break-up song that nobody’s supposed to hear, except people will this time.
This is a hyperkinetic and buoyant track that indicates that the brilliantly named Turpentine Babycino have bright horizons ahead:
The band will be heading out on tour next month to promote the single – see details below.
