SUPPORT FOR ‘FALLING OUT’
“I feel like I’ve just swallowed a chilli. it’s got heat from start to finish when you think it’s peaked, there’s moments where it escalates hotter than I thought it could go”. – 4/5 stars
– Declan Byrne – triple j (AUS)
“’Falling Out’ is an excellent introduction to the band if you’re yet to get acquainted, opening with distortion and a rough-around-the-edges tease that this isn’t going to be a clean or overly-polished rock song”.
– PIlerats (AUS)
“‘Falling Out’ comes out snarling, going straight for the jugular with the kind of cyclonic energy that can only be captured through the lens of vigorous punk rock”.
– Blunt Magazine (AUS)
Added to Spotify playlist ‘New Punk Tracks’
Following the release of their latest single ‘Falling Out’, Sydney-based punk band FANGZ have returned with its hectic accompanying video clip – directed by Joel McDonald and Reece Grogan from Yeah Rad Creative.
Filmed in the bathroom of Jacoby’s Tiki Bar in Enmore, the clip is a rollercoaster ride of frenetic performances from the band, intercut with classic late-night examples of bathroom occurrences. These cutaways show people becoming best friends, sneaking drinks in, arguing, making out and passing out. It also features Tom Kennedy from Bare Bones singing the bridge and Adrian the owner mopping the bathroom floor at the end.
FANGZ talk about the production behind the clip:
“The night before the shoot FANGZ were drinking at Jacoby’s until close for Jameel’s birthday and we turned up the next day on two hours sleep. The cutaway scenes in the toilet cubicle were all shot on a static camera to give it a very 90’s feel. We put the call out looking for about 10 extras and ended up with about 30 people and having to make up scenes on the fly. One thing we didn’t take into account was how much the bathroom would echo during playback which made it very challenging to hear”.
To coincide with the release, the band will embark on an East Coast run of headline shows with dates in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. This continues on from an unrelenting 2019 touring schedule, which saw them perform a sold-out EP launch at The Chippo, before touring with Aussie mainstays Gyroscope, and landing support slots with Canadian hardcore-punk heavyweights Cancer Bats and Comeback Kid.
Since release the track has seen support from Spotify, triple j, triple j Unearthed, Pilerats, Blunt Magazine and SYN FM. Previous singles were strongly praised by Music Feeds, Hysteria Magazine and Australian community radio, including 4ZZZ, Aussie Music Weekly, 2RRR and Radio Adelaide.
