Amyl And The Sniffers - Comfort To Me
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Comfort To Me demonstrates the same irrepressible smarts, punk integrity and fearless candour as their debut but as one would expect of any young band five years on, Amyl And The Sniffers sound has evolved, in Amy’s words it’s "raw self expression, defiant energy and unapologetic vulnerability". The new album features the singles "Guided By Angels" and "Security".
Already renowned for a ball-tearing live show, The Sniffers made their international debut as one of the hottest tipped acts at The Great Escape in 2018. Soon afterwards, they signed deals with both Rough Trade Records and ATO Records, made a massively hyped appearance at SXSW, and finally released their self-titled debut album in 2019, landing them an ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Award for Best Rock Album, capping off a wild year for the lunatic, likeable punks.
Late in 2020, Amyl and The Sniffers went into the studio with producer Dan Luscombe to record their sophomore album, Comfort To Me. Written over a long year of lockdown, the album was influenced by and expanded on a heavier pool of references - old-school rock’n’roll (AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Motörhead and Wendy O Williams), modern hardcore (Warthog and Power Trip) and the steady homeland heroes (Coloured Balls and Cosmic Psychos). Seventeen songs were recorded in the Comfort to Me sessions and the top thirteen made the cut.
Lyrically, the album was influenced by Taylor’s rap idols and countless garage bands and in her words ‘I had all this energy inside of me and nowhere to put it, because I couldn’t perform, and it had a hectic effect on my brain. My brain evolved and warped and my way of thinking about the world completely changed.’
