Scene News: SOPHISTICATED DINGO release anthem against smashed avo with new single, ‘YUPPIES’

SOPHISTICATED DINGO are sick of your smashed avo, craft beer and buzzfeed articles about the yoof and their inability to save money. And they’re telling you where to go in their trash punk single, ‘Yuppies’.

Yuppies make inner city living a drag. They push up the prices of avocado let alone housing! Bread is no longer something you toast but something you have to source from an artisan bakery and don’t even get me started on coffee! Good thing we have SOPHISTICATED DINGO here to cock their legs up on them.

Drawing from Aussie punk, surf and garage, the band started in a loft above a garage, which for a garage band is the only answer you need. ‘Yuppies’ is fuzzed out but tuneful, fast but danceable, and visceral while poptastic.


“We wrote Yuppies after Jimmy would arrive at band practice after 11 hour shifts at a cafe and running his mouth about the customers he was having to deal with. Cafe-goers complaining about having to settle for dark rye when light-rye wasn’t available, complaints about the music being too loud, and baristas being forced to froth 3 different types of milk at once all for some f***wit who wants it served with a shot of decaf!

Lewis – Sophisticated Dingo

“Sophisticated Dingo are attacking garage pop with sheer brilliance, not to mention a touch of comedic allure and cheeky attitude.” Happy Mag

“Punchy, catchy garage rock that will definitely tickle the fancy of any Skegss or Soho fan!”

Bridget Hustwaite, Triple J

They’ve shared the stage with some killer bands including Tired Lion, The Gooch Palms, Dear Seattle, Mesa Cosa and Raave Tapes which speaks volumes about their live show credentials. If these guys don’t get you moshing, then maybe check your pulse.

These party starters are ripping up Sydney and Melbourne on their Yuppies Tour!
