Newcastle-based purveyors of dark electro-pop ‘She’s My You’ have shared an infectiously summery new bop dubbed ‘Gross’.
Premiering exclusively via Music Feeds below, the warm, synthy toe-tapper comes hot on the heels of the release of the band’s debut EP Take What You Feel in April, and was written about the way that money has a tendency to “expose people’s vices”.
“I had just moved to Sydney from comparatively modest Newcastle in the hope of making a career in music and quickly relaised that I was a small fish in a very big, wealth driven city,” explains vocalistToby Anagnostis.
“People get up earlier and go to bed later,” he continues. “They spend more time looking at screens and less time looking at family. As a kid, you hear horror stories of children stepping on syringes in local playgrounds. I feel like, in a city like this, it’s almost impossible to avoid stepping on the ‘wealth-accumulation needle’ and getting hooked. We all ride the wave to some degree.”
Take ‘Gross’ for a spin below ahead of its official release on Wednesday, 7th November.
Fans of The Neighbourhood, The 1975 and Vancouver Sleep Clinic should dig.
