SINGLES

Tell us about your single? 

‘Fire’ was written during a lazy sunday rehearsal in Ash’s garage while our bass player was mucking around with weird bass lines. The whole song came together in about 20 minutes.

Which song resonates most strongly and why?

Say what you will about him but I still get goosebumps when I hear “Runaway” by Kanye West. Everyone’s been a jerk at some point in their life. Good self reflection song.

Any on the road anecdotes? 

On our last tour we all picked a song that had to be played on repeat until someone cracked. Have you ever heard A1’s “Caught in the middle” for 4 hours straight? Not fun.

Where do you draw inspiration from? 

My mates, my job, this city, girls, partying, highs, lows, life.
How would you describe your sound in food form and why? 
Fillet-O-fish burger, not everyones go to, but when you buy a fillet o fish burger, you are going to have a good time.
What’s next for you? 

Release our new single ‘Fire” and tour the song down the coast in late Feb.

What’s your scene? 

Sitting in our backyard in brunswick, watching the sun set, drinking rum and pumping the Arctic Monkeys’ first record.

2015 was a big year for SINGLES. The band burst onto the scene with countless shows around the country.

Singles have already played along side the likes of British India, Last Dinosaurs and Kingswood, as well as playing headline shows of their own.

The boys recently got into the studio with the legendary Malcolm Besley to work on their debut EP.

“Fire” is the first taste of this, and will be supported with a National Australian tour early next year.
