“Nothing thrilled me aurally as much this year as the long-awaited
debut album from this Sydney post-punk quartet”

Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen, The Guardian 
(The 21 Best Australian Albums of 2022)

“There’s nothing common about this album: It’s a self-possessed statement of intent and
one of the best Australian debut albums in recent memory”

Doug Wallen, NME Magazine (★★★★★)

“Referencing Eve Babitz and David Cronenberg but taking musical cues from freak
DIY punk bands like Nots and the Reatards, the debut album from Sydney four-piece
Body Type is punchy and invigorating, a blast of energy that takes early-pandemic malaise
and turns it into something witty and thrilling”

Shaad D’Souza, The FADER

“Powered by three songwriting personalities and drawing from DIY punk traditions,
Body Type called it how they saw it on articulate, cutting belters”

Double J

“One of the most consistently impressive, powerful,
and exciting bands on the Australian scene”

Rolling Stone Australia

“Body Type at their most cheeky, assertive, and forward-looking”
DIY (★★★★)

“Whip-smart twisting of the post punk garage band template”
The Line of Best Fit (8/10)

“One of my favourite Australian bands”
Zan Rowe, Double J

“Pretty tongue in cheek and clever”
Anthony Fantano, theneedledrop

“Chock-full of angsty lyrics and post-punk riffs”
Frankie Magazine

“High-impact, tongue-in-cheek and with that punk spirit”
RUSSH Magazine

“All-female outfit spark a new era with indie-rock-punk euphoria”

As Body Type steady for their upcoming UK and EU tour dates, the group today announce their national album tour, presented by Double J, in support of their second album Expired Candy out June 2 via Poison City RecordsBUY TICKETS HERE + PRE-ORDER LP HERE.

Across August, Body Type will be joined by Sweetie and Perfect Actress in Eora / Sydney, Our Carlson and Chimers in Dharawal Land / Port Kembla, Gut Health and Sweetie in Naarm / Melbourne, Platonic Sex and Nakki Soul in Meanjin / Brisbane plus Ash Baroque and Paint in Boorloo / Perth. The band’s live show recently rocked crowds at High Voltage Festival – “Body Type stopped traffic” Rolling Stone‘s review read – alongside supports with The Pixies, Fontaines D.C., Wolf Alice and previously, Big Thief, Cate Le Bon, POND, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Rolling Blackouts Coast Fever, DZ Deathrays, MOD CON.

If Body Type’s debut record Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising was an exuberant and furious declaration of dominion, then their swift follow-up Expired Candy is all about revelling in the space they’ve carved out. It’s sweet, acidic, tough and undeniable all at once, and speaking to the forthcoming release Body Type reveal that “Expired Candy is filled with hope, love, and danger, dancing with delicious uncertainty. In pursuit of joy we dreamed up songs about mothers, sisters, dogs, nans; family tantrums, forward motion, falling in love, platonic or romantic, with someone or self. Heart breaks, tooth will shatter, but she’ll be there when it really matters. Flirty, feral and defiant, just how we like it. From our wild heart to yours, Body Type.”

Including singles in the just released ‘Weekend’ and the Double J playlisted ‘Holding On’ and ‘Miss The World’, Expired Candy is a euphoric, lawless rock record, characterised by unfaltering intensity. Oceanic yearning mixes with sly humour. Guitars spit and swell and slice through harmonies. Moments of elation and bizarre imagery are wrung from the monotony of every day. Vocals knot together, producing ecstatic, slanted melodies. An album about not being so certain that confinement and desolation lead to a dead end. Instead, stagnation may serve as the perfect breeding ground for joyous bewilderment and an inflamed imagination. Like the stale confection of its title, Expired Candy is a blistering listen because of the way it transmutes gloom into resistance.

Their Australian Music Prize-nominated debut album Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising including highlights ‘Buoyancy‘ ‘The Charm’ and ‘Sex & Rage‘ across the 11-track record sought praise far and wide: Rolling Stone, The Guardian, NME, DIY, Frankie Magazine, Clash, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit and more, as well as radio support from all corners of the country landing Album of the Week placements across 2SER, FBi Radio, SYN, Edge Radio and RTR FM and much more.
