Sydney (via the Cenny Coast) rock sons The Lazys have set their guitars to stun on a brand new slice of Aussie pub rock dubbed Howling Woman.
The video for the blues-riffin doozy sees the lads take a trip to Luna Park to headbang in front of the Hair Raiser (genius) and set sail on Sydney Harbour to rock out in front of iconic hunks of metal like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
As head wailer Leon Harrison told Canada’s Exclaim!, the clip is a cheeky nod to Aussie rock titans AC/DC.
“We wanted to make a video in our back yard that showcased Sydney in all its glory!” he said. “We also wanted to continue the legacy of playing live in the public domain similar to that of AC/DC in their video Long Way to the Top when they played on a flat bed truck down Swanston St. in Melbourne back in 1976.
“These days If it’s not smoke and mirrors it’s abstract and weird, but as a rock band we had no interest in anything other than making a video that honours our beautiful city, captures the essence of rock n roll and a statement that despite any adversity our genre faces we’ll never stop believing and giving to the cause.”
Howling Woman was sliced off The Lazy’s debut self-titled LP, which has been shredding up the charts in Canada off the back of super-single, Shake It Like You Mean It.
Apparently, Canadians appreciate Aussie rock more than Australians do these days, which TBH is pretty embarro so we should probably do something to change it, eh?
