Ahead of the release tomorrow (15 June) of their new EP, 'Wetbrain', it's time you stream Melbourne surf rock, '60s-inspired western group Auntie Leo & The Backstabbers' delicious offering 'Bad Seed'.
With local support slots for Tired Lion and Drunk Mums already on their resume, the first single off 'Wetbrain' is a glorious track (think somewhere between The Animals, The Morning After Girls and King Gizzard) that will have your hips swaying and arms bending in a hypnotic fashion. Go on, try it.
"'Bad Seed' was written while obeying the doctor's orders after a workplace accident that put me out of work for a few weeks," band member Dillon Melita says.
"Instead of being stuck in bed surrounded by four walls, I wrote about a long journey I wished I was on. It seemed a way more interesting way to pass the time and really forced the creative thoughts to flow.
"I wasn't stuck in my room or confined to my bed any longer, but instead I was on the coast riding horseback with a frothie in my holster."
The 'Wetbrain' EP is released 15 June and will be launched at Cherry Bar (Melbourne) 13 July.
