Sticky Fingers have let rip a brand new music video for their fresh slice of reggae-roots-rock Outcast At Last and it’s pretty awesome while making zero sense whatsoever.
The clip, directed by Rhys Day, is choc-full of muscle cars, dog-racing, Hawaiian shirts and spectacular handlebar mo’s and seems to feature StiFi starring as a cast of colourfully-dressed gangster/mob/baller types in late 1970’s Straya. We think?
Either way it’s totally off its meds and a pretty fun watch, while the song is catchy AF and a stomping good time.
Outcast At Last is our first lick of the Sydney lads’ forthcoming 3rd studio LP, which is due out later this year.
Speaking with triple j this week, bassist Paddy Cornwall said the band recorded the brand spanker at Thailand’s famous Karma Studios on a four week recording holiday over the summer.
“We’re mixing [the album] as we speak, down in Melbourne, with our man Dann Hume and it’s sounding great,” Cornwall said. “We’re very excited. It’s actually much more of a live sounding album.
“On [last LP] Land of Pleasure, that was the first time we had our own studio and our relationship with Dann was growing and so we were getting mega-experimental; getting deep into the production elements,” he continued.
“This album’s going to be slightly an antidote to that where it’s a lot more back-to-basics: the band, in a room, playing together. And I reckon this single is a pretty good representation of that.”
Meanwhile, the Stickies’ national headlining tour this April is pretty much SOLD the fuck OUT, which should come as no surprise since the band are renowned for selling out shows before they’re even announced.
