Ahead of their debut EP et cetera, etc out March 29, Australia's alt-punk outfit dust share their scintillating new effort Joy (Guilt). With chugging basslines and soaring guitar driven choruses, delivering a huge call to arms, the track's spoken words and hazy ambiance create a moving poetry of art. Coupled with the band's unattainable energy, Joy (Guilt) serves as another monstrous hit for the Awabakal / Newcastle natives. Speaking more about the single Gabriel explains “I wrote the lyrics in quite a turbulent and emotional time, collating lines that would come into my head or writing down things that people in my life had said. Lines that I thought were meaningful, funny or melancholy. Although unintentional, I think the lyrics come from an observational perspective or describe what my beliefs were at the time and remembering things that had been said to me in the past to shape those beliefs. I think it expresses the frustration of having no choice in how we’re brought up, what we’re told and the daily intake of information that constantly influences our behaviour. Whether that’s a result of our family, social media or religion.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
