Wollongong’s Good Lekker Share Euphoric New Single ‘Belligerence’ & National Tour Dates

Meet Good Lekker: Wollongong’s indie-rock rising stars.

After signing on with boutique management agency Good Intent and getting booked to play on the lineup for Yours & Owls 2022, the six-piece have just unfurled a bouncy new single dubbed ‘Belligerence’ and announced a massive run of national tour dates.

Produced and mixed by Daniel Willington (ILUKA) and mastered by Steve Smart (Vance Joy, Tash Sultana), the irresistibly euphoric indie-rock bop was inspired by a “real-world run in with a character that no one wants to deal with. An arms-crossed, explosive ball of masculine narcissism”.

“Because of its inspiration, the song aims to satirise and critique the caricature of a violent male – a person all too prevalent in our world,” explains Good Lekker’s Joshua Fahy.

“They’re not worth challenging on their own terms – because as an over quoted author has said: ‘Never wrestle with a pig – you both get dirty, and the pig likes it’.”

He continues: “‘Belligerence’ aims instead to highlight the absurdity of charging at life fists first. The message is generalisable to all those who are insecure enough to resort immediately to violence and aggression when challenged or confronted.”

Good Lekker’s lyrical content conveys powerful messages about human behaviour and ‘Belligerence’ incentivises the band’s strong desire to encourage safe spaces at live gigs, alongside the impending launch of their ‘Don’t Be A Dickhead’ t-shirts, and their impassioned campaign video, 5 Ways Not To Be A Dickhead, which you can watch below.

If artists like Foals, Jungle Giants and Holy Holy are up your alley, then this most certainly will be too.
