Aussie Wunderkinds Sticky Fingers return with the 3rd single from the stunning new album Westaway (The Glitter & The Slums) entitled Sad Songs. Bright, full of sunburnt charm and glistening riff work, it’s little wonder the profile of these lads is skyrocketing!
Go, Aussie, Go!
Bottle decadence, swagger, and plenty of hard-yards, and you have one of Australia’s most successful musical exports Sticky Fingers.
Dylan Frost (vocals/guitar) Seamus Coyle (lead guitar), Paddy Cornwall (bass), Beaker Best (drums), and Freddy Crabs (keys), have earned a household name on the strength of their seductive style and high-voltage shows. It’s the soundtrack to a sunbathed kick-on. It’s the birth child of a fling between Manchester Rock and Kingston Dub, luring listeners in with a salivating caress of the soul.
Sticky Fingers are the perfect storm in a stifling indie-rock climate. It’s no surprise their infectious flavour has propelled them to dizzying heights on the charts (their new album ‘Westway [The Glitter and the Slums]’ debuted #1 on the ARIA’s, their sophomore album ‘Land of Pleasure’ debuted at #1 on AIR), clocked up an arsenal of viral hits (‘How To Fly’ is sitting on 5.4 million views, ‘Australia Street’ has 4.6 million), drew record festival crowds (Splendour In The Grass 2016), had multiple songs on high rotation, and sold-out tours the world over.
The release of the chart-smashing new album ‘Westway’ marks an evolution delving into darker, more intimate territories. It lays bare the heavy toll of living on the road, raising the bar with a new evocative vision that stays true to their roots. Recorded against the backdrop of Thailand’s picturesque coast, ‘Westway’ stands back to reflect on their ascent.
You’ve heard “Outcast At Last”, and “Our Town”, now they give you “Sad Songs”.
